I’m taking a few moments to draw attention to the fact that an excellent bi-weekly podcasts exists hosted by comics creators and indie publishers that reviews books and Kickstarters of interest, titled Comics For Grownups. This week co-hosts Andrea Tsurumi (cartoonist and illustrator), Joshua Malbin (author) and Alexander Rothman (cartoonist, poet and editor of the Ink Brick anthology) take in a wide variety of topics including:
Reviews of Fütchi Perf by Kevin Czapiewski, If You Steal by Jason, Super Mutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki, and a manifesto, some Van Morrison history, and more
