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 39 episodes since launching on Jul 07, 2017

Since Best of the Rest is an independent comics podcast focusing on only the best in indie and alternative publishing, it only makes sense that the guys discuss Fortran, chili, DC and Marvel on this episode. It was supposed to be about Jazz Maynard. I promise.

More actual discussion on Jazz Maynard will be occurring on the next episode of THE BEST OF THE REST!

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.
