Best of the Rest

Best of the Rest, An Indie Comics Podcast, is a reflective but not pedantic look at Alternative/independent comics both current and past. Hosts Dennis Chandler and Jay Loving delve into works from publishers such as Fantagraphics, Oni Press, Lions Forge, Drawn and Quarterly, Alterna and others. The cast is for everyone, whether you’re a reader of alternative comics, want to get started or just a curious onlooker. Listen in for Dennis and Jay’s lively discussion mixed with humor (they hope) about the wide-ranging world of Independent comics.

Best of the Rest is hosted by Dennis Chandler and Jay Loving and produced by Michael Sparkman

Dennis and Jay discuss Black Summer and No Hero, two series by Warren Ellis and Juan Jose Ryp, that deconstruct the Superhero genre and ask hard questions.

Where does heroism end and vigilantism begin?

Or is there even a separation of the two?

if given a choice, would you choose to be a superhero?

Really?    

As a bonus, Dennis gives some advice on speculative comic book collecting.
