Welcome to New Brooklyn

Gene and Derek are happy to have Dean Haspiel on The Comics Alternative to discuss his new book from Image Comics, The Red Hook, Vol. 1: New Brooklyn. This is the first in a planned trilogy introducing readers to his universe of New Brooklyn. The Red Hook is a reluctant hero. Once a super-thief, his unlikely encounter with the legendary superhero, The Green Point, bequeathes unto him The Omni-Fist of Altruism. This transform him into a hero, where he cannot resist helping others in distress, despite his better judgment. In this role, The Red Hook becomes a major player in New Brooklyn, a borough whose heart had been broken by commerce and real estate speculation, and, as a result, secedes from New York, and America. Sound unlikely? Well, listen to Dean as he explains the premise and his plans for future New Brooklyn narratives. The guys talk with Dean, asking him a variety of questions not only about his new book, but about his other publications, as well. But then Dean turns the tables and begins interviewing Gene and Derek. It’s a wild experience with an indefatigable Haspiel.

Comics Alternative Kickstarter: Sock: The Comic Book

Footwear Crimefighter!

For this week’s Kickstarter show, Derek talks Rickman about his current campaign Sock: The Comic Book. It’s the (largely) wordless story of an unlikely hero displaced from his companion in the laundromat, and going at it on his own as a crimefighter.

Sock will be a 32-page black-and-white comic book, one that will be appropriate for all ages. Rickman describes the origins of Sock this way:

The idea came to me during the 1999 San Diego Comic Con while at the pool with friends after a day at the show. The conversation turned toward the weirdest comic characters we knew. Flaming Carrot, The Tick, Ed the Happy Clown, Reid Fleming: World’s Toughest Milkman, Sam and Max: Freelance Police, were all tossed about. The question was asked: what would be the wackiest thing to make into a comic? As my feet dangled in the water I glanced toward my shoes and saw my socks. I reached for my sketchbook (always next to me) and “SOCK” was born.

Offbeat, wacky, wordless, all-ages, lost laundry…what’s not to like? Be sure to check out Sock: The Comic Book, and see exactly what happens when your socks go missing.

Comics Alternative, Episode 278: Reviews of Terminal Lance Ultimate Omnibus, Death or Glory #1, and Black [AF]: Widows and Orphans #1

Time Codes:

Difference Is Good

This week Paul and Derek focus on three titles that are strikingly different in nature. They begin with Maximilian Uriarte’s Terminal Lance Ultimate Omnibus: The World’s Most Popular Military Comic Strip (Little Brown and Company). This is a hardbound volume of the entries included on Uriarte’s webcomic, and it collects strips published between January 2010 and December 2016, most of what you’ll find on the site. Terminal Lance Ultimate Omnibus also include the strips published in the Marine Corps Times. Although the guys know next to nothing about military (specifically Marine) life, they approach this text on its own terms and with a full awareness of its intended audience.

Next, they look at Rick Remender and Bengal’s Death or Glory #1 (Image Comics). Both of the guys marvel over Bengal’s art, pointing out that the visuals are what largely drive the narrative in this first issue. But both are also fans of Remender’s work, and as Paul points out, this new title bears many of his stylistic stamps. This is a title that has a lot of promise, and it’s yet another Remender series for the guys to keep up with.

Finally, Paul and Derek discuss something never before covered on The Comics Alternative: a title from Black Mask Studios. The first issue in Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith 3’s Black [AF]: Widows and Orphans has recently been released, and the guys speculate on this ancillary tale in the Black storyworld. Although Paul is familiar with this universe, this is Derek’s first foray into Black. As the guys discuss, this is an action-packed first issue, although at times a bit chaotic. Some of this confusion, in fact, may be due to the visuals. Nonetheless, it’s a title worth checking out.
