Episode 68 - You Gotta Get With My Friends

68SM.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Two books from December 17, 2014. Plus, a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Mark.

On The Couch: Ignatz-award winning cartoonist Alec Longstreth.


Show Notes:

This week’s theme is friendship is magic. We talk a lot about the relationships between characters in comic books - be they superhero teams, mortal enemies or anything in between. We’ve discussed the dynamics of romantic relationships, family conflict and adolescent turmoil. The two comics we’re focusing on today showcase the strong bonds that form among friends, especially in times of trouble, be it magical or mundane. Either way, there’s probably a body or two involved, so choose your friends wisely. Make sure at least one of them knows what to do when the shit hits the fan.

The Couch - Alec Longstreth 51:10

You may know Ignatz-award winning cartoonist Alec from his minicomic Phase 7 or his gorgeous graphic novel, Basewood, self-published in hardcover this year. Or maybe you’re wearing the sweet t-shirt he designed for the band Weezer. His comics work has also appeared in anthologies published by Villard, Three Rivers Press, Dark Horse Comics, Tugboat Press and many other indie self-publishers. He was a fellow at the Center for Cartoon Studies and teaches for CCS and the California College for the Arts for their MFA Comics Program.

Episode 67 - Taking Matters Into Your Own Hand

67AllSM.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Three books from December 3, 2014. Plus, a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Len.

Show Notes:

This week’s theme is taking matters into your own hands. It’s about justice, not the law, because sometimes the law can’t be trusted. Or even if they could, maybe you yourself aren't up to any good, so why complicate matters? Better to just take care of things yourself before anyone else gets hurt. Unless that’s what you’re looking for. Because Andrea may know a guy.
