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 47 episodes since launching on Jul 07, 2017

Ronnie Barron @ronbar316 of the Absolute DC podcast joins Dennis and Jay to discuss Motor Girl, they latest offering from Terry Moore.  Join them as they discuss this wild, enjoyable and touching story of Sam and her constant companion Mike as they encounter aliens, buffoonish thugs and nefarious UFO investigators.  Spoilers present so beware!

Dennis and Jay respond to questions from listeners, then talk about the indie books they have been reading recently.

Sometimes life gets complicated.  Things get tough.  People are unreliable.  Enemies are constantly plotting against you.  In times like these you can always rely on Dennis and Jay to serve up a nice, reliable and healthy dose of Best of the Rest.  This week the guys continue their discussion of Jazz Maynard and the rest of the best.

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!
