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.

This week Andy and Derek thrill and amaze by doing close readings of Derk Backder's graphic memoir, My Friend Dahmer, and Matt Kindt's new ongoing series, Mind MGMT. Enmeshed in the wonderful world of great art, fine storytelling, and cool spy stuff, the two guys with PhDs are in their element. Oh, they also unapologetically become shills for the podcast by pointing out their new PayPal Donate button and asking listeners to help spread the word about their show. They're like that at times.
