Comics Alternative Podcast 72: Reviewing Six New Comic Book Titles
On today's episode of The Comics Alternative, Derek Royal and I review a whole passel of new comic books: Alex + Ada #1-3 (Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn - Image Comics); Deadly Class #1 (Rick Remender and Wes Craig - Image Comics); Letter 44 #1-3 (Charles Soule and Alberto Jiménez Albuquerque - Oni Press); Juice Squeezers #1 (David Lapham - Dark Horse Comics); Legenderry #1 (Bill Willingham and Sergio Fernandez DaVilla - Dynamite Entertainment); and Curse #1 (Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel, Riley Rossmo and Colin Lorimer - BOOM! Studios). From SF to horror to urban intrigue to steampunk to bug-eyed monster bugs to the riddle of consciousness, we've got it covered. Along the way we discuss page layouts, narrative density, serialized storytelling, and why editorial matter matters.
