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.

In this episode, the Two Guys with PhDs talk to Philip Gelatt and Tyler Crook, the creators behind the Oni graphic novel Petrograd. We also talk to Tyler about his work on The Sixth Gun and B.P.R.D.   Along the way, Philip drops some stunning historical facts, Tyler is congratulated on winning the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award at this year's Eisner Awards, and everyone also talks a lot about movies, with a particularly controversial defense of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.  In addition, the Coen Brothers are mentioned, in all of their psychotic and violent glory.
