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.

Best of the Rest has released 46 episodes since launching on Jul 07, 2017

Ronnie Barron, who is on more Nerdy Legion podcasts than anyone can count, joins Dennis and Jay to tell them everything they've gotten wrong about indie comics. It's a fun and totally unstructured conversation (this IS Nerdy Legion after all)  Come have a listen.

In this episode that is a departure from our normal offering, Jay presents a recording he did at the recent North Texas Comic Book Show.  The convention kindly allowed him to record the panel What Is Indie featuring a number of local creators of small press indie comics.

Paul Tesseneer from the Comics In Black and White and Paul And Michael Occasionally Save The World podcasts joins Dennis and Jay to discuss a wide range of topics all centered on Indie comics (well, mostly centered)  

Dennis and Jay discuss the July Previews for comics releasing in September.  Some fascinating books are coming this fall.  Join the guys and get your order lists ready!

Dennis and Jay embark on another wide ranging discussion of Indie comics with maybe a smattering of Big 2 talk as well.
