Welcome to the Comics Syllabus podcast, where we read widely and we dig deep. Your host Paul, a literacy researcher and English teacher, introduces curious readers to a range of current and classic comics, and then engages in closer discussion and analysis of a certain title with comics critics, creators, scholars, and teachers.
On this week’s Comics Syllabus podcast, Paul digs deep with fellow Multiversity contributor Kent Falkenberg about "Dept H" by Matt and Sharlene Kindt from Dark Horse.
(Images and links to go with our conversation are below!)
Then in the "General Ed" segment at ( 02:07:05 ), Kent holds forth about some comics related to "Dept H," including "Grass Kings" by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins (Boom!), "Royal City" by Jeff Lemire (Image), and "The Wake" by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy (Vertigo). He also recommends "Mister Miracle" #1 by Tom King and Mitch Gerads (DC) and "Swordquest" by Chad Bowers, Chris Sims, and Ghostwriter X (Dynamite).
NOTE: For reasons Paul discussed in the intro, this episode recorded before Charlottesville events of 8/11-12. Hope to address those next week.
