Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 50: Talking All-Age Comics at Lone Star Comics

Andy Hirsch is in the House!

AndyThe Two Guys with PhDs are back at Lone Star Comics in Plano, and this month they are talking about all-age comics.  Joining them is Lone Star employee Shea Hennum and special guest Andy Hirsch, artist of such comics as Garfield, Peanuts, Regular ShowThe Royal Historian of Oz, and an upcoming issue of Adventure Time.  The conversation is engaging, and the camaraderie is more dynamic than humanly possible. Come listen to the fun as everyone discusses the philosophy of all-age comics, the definitions of “all-age” and “young reader” comics, the joys of Adventure Time, the centrality of Archie and Richie Rich, and the reality of having to bleep Andy K’s language on an episode devoted to all-age comics.  Plus, Andy K says “I’m playing with it right now” during the show.  We’re dearly sorry about this, listeners. Parents: email your complaints to Andy K directly.

P.S. Unfortunately, Brent Erwin of Ape Entertainment, wasn’t able to join us.

About Derek Royal

The Comics Alternative is a weekly podcast focused on the world of alternative, independent, and primarily non-superhero comics. (There’s nothing wrong with the superhero genre…we just want to do something different.) New shows become available every Wednesday…much like the comic books you get. Episodes feature reviews of graphic novels and current ongoing series, discussions of upcoming comics, examinations of collected editions, in-depth analyses of a variety of comics texts, spotlights on various creators and their oeuvre, roundtable discussions with prominent critics and scholars in the field, and interviews with the artists and writers who make all of this possible. Along the way, Andy and Derek will talk about the various books that they are reading; the many pop cultural references that, for better or worse, inform their lives; and the unpredictable (and inexplicable) weirdness that seems to creep into each episode. In essence,The Comics Alternative podcast is brilliantly simple: Two guys with PhDs talking about comics.
