(Not) Approved By The Comics Code Authority

In the most eclectic episode yet, Dennis and Jay embark on a labyrinthine discussion of topics such as  collecting Batman comics, the Comics Code Authority, Tijuana bibles, the exact date Indie comics started(SPOILER, there isn't one!) and science fiction novels. The guys may have run out of things to talk about.

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 Alterna, Scout, Lion Forge, Fantagraphics, Oni Press, Hard Case Crime, Drawn and Quarterly 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 take a look at three series from Titan Comics Hard Case Crime imprint; The Assignment, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Normandy Gold. All three feature female protagonists (Well...OK, not at first). A lot of intrigue and steamy action. Just don’t call these woman “broads," that’ll get you hurt!

Dennis and Jay are pleased to bring you an interview with Ben Kahn, the writer and creator of Heavenly Blues and Shaman. Ben is a personable and gregarious guy, has quite a bit of knowledge of the comic book industry and loves to share that knowledge. The conversation touches on a wide array of subjects. Find Ben at benkahncomics.com and on Twitter at @BenTheKahn.

Dennis and Jay take a detailed look at the September Previews Catalog from Diamond distribution.  This months book lists titles that will be released in November 2017 and after.  Have a listen and maybe you might discover something new that you just have to read!

Dennis and Jay delve into Ghost Money from Lion Forge, a translation of a French comic book originally published in 2007.  In a world of terrorism and counter-terrorism, a young woman finds that money may be the most powerful weapon of mass destruction.

Dennis and Jay discuss Dept. H, the mind-bending series from Matt Kindt and Dark Horse Comics. Miles below the ocean surface, in an underwater research laboratory, Mia must find out who murdered her father. But a dizzying amalgam of suspicious circumstances, intriguing characters and bizarre sea creatures make this a complex and intricately woven story. If you think you know what Kindt will do because of his other writings, you may be surprised.
