The Comics Alternative

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.

Along the way, Andy and Derek also bring in various and sundry topics, such as the guys’ love of The Rockford Files, strategies for collecting Wacky Packages stickers, Andy’s shameful lackluster appreciation of The Beatles, the Captain Action action figure, Hello Kitty is made of kittens!, Hall and Oates, Satan worshipers, and Derek and Andy’s idea for a new reality show, “Put That in Your Underpants”! Lots o’ comics, lots o’ discussion, and lots o’ fun. What more could you ask for in a comics podcast?
