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, Derek and Andy talk to Tim Seeley about his new hit Image series with artist Mike Norton, Revival, and the new Dark Horse vampire miniseries, Ex Sanguine, with co-writer Josh Emmons. They also talk about horror, the comics business, rural Wisconsin, life in a small town, fish fries, and a host of other topics. In addition, Andy tells the story of a baller experience he and Tim had in Myrtle Beach, SC, which involved a burlesque dancer in a cat costume, a whip, and the destruction of a priceless work of art!
