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.

Dennis and Jay have a labyrinthine discussion on comic book storage, dissociative personality disorder, data storage on glass, is there a center of the universe, Styles of hats, and more. It makes more sense than you think.

Dennis and Jay are back with the All New format of Best Of the Rest. It's spectacular! It's sublime! It's not nearly as hyperbolic as this introduction.  Just give it a listen. We think you'll like it.  I mean, we mention Nick Wetmore and who doesn't like that?

Dennis and Jay discuss collecting pulp magazines dating from the 1920's through the 50's and the similarities and differences to collecting comics.

This episode begins with Jay recounting his time writing comic book reviews for a blog site.  Then, the guys discuss a 1982 edition of an underground comix price guide, then end with discussing current indie titles they've been reading.

Dennis and Jay go through the August Previews catalog and discuss one or two other items.
