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 Vault, 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 Jay Loving. You can support this show by visiting our merch store or feel free to get in touch with us via Twitter, @botrcomics, by sending us an e-mail.
