Comics Alternative, On Location: The First September Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

Legacies

It’s time for another on-location episode recorded at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC. In this first of two planned September visits, Michael and Derek talk with customers — Zyg, Brian, and Alonzo — and discuss some recent releases that strike their attention. Focusing on the mainstream, Michael highlights Fantastic Four #1. He discusses Marvel’s former flagship title’s return, and he goes on to speculate on the significance of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s creation…not only with the Marvel Universe, but for all comics. Derek focuses on a few non-superhero titles, including Christopher Sebela and Shawn McManus’s House Amok #1 (IDW/Black Crown), Eric M. Esquivel and Ramon Villalobos’s Border Town #1 (DC/Vertigo), and the first two titles in DC’s new Sandman initiative, The Sandman Universe #1 and The Dreaming #1.

With this episode, The Comics Alternative’s on-location series joins the Queen City Podcast Network!

Nifty Looking Ladies

On this week’s episode Andy and Derek check out the old and the new. They begin with Star Hawks, Vol. 1: 1977-1978, a new collection of Gil Kane and Ron Goulart’s classic newspaper strip. As the guys discuss, this isn’t the first time that Star Hawks has been collected, but this new release from IDW’s Library of American Comics imprint is probably one of the best. Next, they turn to Street Angel: After School Kung Fu Special (Image Comics). This is more of the Street Angel fun you’ve come to expect from Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca. Fans of action comics, especially the old 1970s style martial arts type, will appreciate this one-shot. Finally, the Two Guys wrap up with Simon Spurrier and Jonas Goonface’s Godshaper #1 (BOOM! Studios). As with other Spurrier creations, the premise of this title is rather complicated, but it’s not too top-heavy. The creators are able to pull off this inaugural issue with a satisfying coherency.
