Comics Alternative Podcast 59: Reviews of Palookaville #21 (Seth) and The Fox #1 (Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid)
In today's episode of The Comics Alternative, Derek Royal and I review two comics which at first glance couldn't seem more different: The latest issue (#21) of Palookaville by Seth (published by Drawn and Quarterly) and the first issue of The Fox by Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid et al. (published by Red Circle/Archie).
Palookaville 21 is a glossy hardcover compendium containing another section of Seth's decade-plus-long "Clyde Fans" serialization, along with selections from his "Rubber Stamp Diary" and part one of his sketchbook memoir "Nothing Lasts" - introspective, slice-of-life pieces. The Fox #1 is a traditional comic book which sees Haspiel and Waid resurrect an old superhero from the Archie family of super hero comics magazines, with stories full of colorful costumes and action-packed daring-do. What could these two books possibly have in common? Listen to find out!
