For the month of March, Sean and Derek discuss three webcomics that are very different in terms of art style and storytelling technique. However, what all three have in common is a focus on relationships. They start off with Michael Sexton’s Everblue, a fantastical tale about two young adventurers who want to explore their world while at the same time avoiding the threats that are in pursuit. After that the guys discuss Handrava, a more realistic narrative set in Madagascar’s capital city. It’s author Rado R. captures the rhythms and flavors of his subject matter through both the dialogue and the visual layout of his scripting. Finally, Derek and Sean turn to a recently completed webcomic, Thom Zahler’s Warning Label. As with the creator’s previous works — most notably Love and Capes, Long Distance, and Time and Vine — the focus is on relationships and its unpredictable contours. This is yet another impressive work from Zahler, and one that will leave you, once again, with a warm and positive feeling.

If you’re like me – looking for variety in your comics reading – then you’ll enjoy listening to my interview with Tyler Chin-Tanner. He’s created some of the most interesting comics stories I’ve read, including Adrenaline (about reality television), American Terrorist (about politics) and Loved & Lost (about relationships).  A graduate of the The Kubert School, he brings thoughtful scripting and engaging art together, so don’t miss my great chat with him this week!


Arc Reactions – 38 – Red Daughter of Krypton

Supergirl gets a Red Lantern ring and a rage induced adventure begins. This story combines the titles of Red Lanterns and Supergirl to tell a mutual story of growth for Supergirl as well as Guy Gardner. Dylan and John broaden the topic to include the Red Lanterns’ place in the DC Universe as well. Also, John’s horrible singing makes a return to the podcast. We know you’ve been waiting for that.
