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. Get in touch with us via Twitter, @botrcomics, by sending us an e-mail.

In this episode yanked from the fires of Perdition, Dennis and Jay cover the March Previews catalog for comics coming out in May. As usual though, there are a number of digressions and rabbit holes along the path.

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.

It's time for the monthly excursion into Previews Catalog.  The months book covers comics that will be released in April or after.  Join us to see what spring has in store for you!

Dennis and Jay discuss the indie titles they've been reading.  Why the Kafka reference in the title?  You'll have to listen and find out.

We Talk to Ben Kahn, writer of Shaman and the acclaimed Heavenly Blues. Ben gives insight to the creative process, talks about upcoming work and answers questions solicited from listeners.
