The Comics Alternative - The World's Smartest Comics and Graphic Novels Podcast


The Comics Alternative is weekly podcast focusing on the world of alternative, independent, and primarily non-superhero comics. (There's nothing wrong with superhero comics. We just want to do something different.) New podcast episodes become available every Wednesday and include 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, and spotlights on various creators and publishers. The Comics Alternative also produces "special feature" programs, such as shows specifically dedicated to creator interviews, webcomics, on-location events, and special non-weekly themes and topics.

Welcome to the January episode of The Comics Alternative's monthly Euro Comics series. That's right, the January episode. As Derek explains during the opening of this show, he and Edward had planned on covering IDW Publishing works in translation that had been released in the last half of 2017, and doing so for their January episode. However, life got in the way again, and they had to delay the recording. Derek then sought out Dean Mullaney (editor of IDW's EuroComics series) and Justin Eisinger (senior editor at IDW) to assist him with this show, but neither were available. So Derek decided to do the episode solo, something that he's never done on the podcast before. And he hopes the results aren't unlistenable.

And here you have it, the "January" episode of the Euro Comics series...albeit released in February. In it, you'll hear Derek discuss six different titles from IDW released since July 2017, including Carlos Sampayo and Jose Munoz's Alack Sinner: The Age of Innocence; Christian Perrissin and Matthieu Blanchin's Calamity Jane: The Calamitous Life of Martha Jane Cannary, 1852-1903; Alain Dodier, Pierre Makyo, and Serge Le Tendre's Jerome K. Jerome Bloche Vol. 1: The Shadow Killer; Hugo Pratt's Corto Maltese: Fable of Venice; Zep's A Story of Men; and Pratt's The Man from the Great North.
