Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 86: The June Previews Catalog

“Some things I would prostitute for, and some things I would not”

JunePreviewsIt’s the beginning of the month, and that means it’s time again for Derek and Andy to take a gander at the latest Previews catalog. In June, the guys notice a whole slew of upcoming releases to anticipate, including new series and books from Dark Horse (the new Dark Horse Presents series, Edgar Allan Poe’s Spirits of the Dead, and Pop), DC/Vertigo (Multiversity and Punk Rock Jesus: Deluxe Edition), IDW (Cerebus: High Society, Digital Audio/Visual Experience), Image (The Fade OutImperial, and Displaced Persons), Abstract Studios (SIP Kids), BOOM!/Archaia (The Collector), Dynamite (Terminal Hero and Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers), Drawn and Quarterly (Earthling), Fantagraphics (Love and Rockets: New Stoires #7 and Wandering Son, Vol. 7), First Second (How the World Was: A California Childhood), and Liveright (Kill My Mother). Also in this episode, Andy avoids Dynamite’s Steampunk Battlestar Galactica: 1880 like the plague, Derek is called out on his strict “no li’l comics” policy, and the Two Guys learn that they are embraced by the Internet’s spanking community.

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.
