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 particular comics works.
On the General Ed segment ( at 5:00 ), we welcome back Multiversity’s Kent Falkenberg to talk about some of his picks for Best of 2017. Kent’s favorites of 2017 include:
Best Mini-Series: (tie) Swordquest (Dynamite) and God Country (Image)

Best Series: Dept H (Dark Horse) by Matt and Sharlene Kindt
Best Publisher: DC Comics
Best Single Issue: (tie) Over the Garden Wall #17 (Boom!) and The Kamandi Challenge #9 (DC)
Our deep dive this week (at 50:21 ) is a look at Dan Slott and Mike and Laura Allred’s "Silver Surfer" run, volumes 1 and 2, running from 2014 until the final issue (#14) released last week. We dig deep into that final issue after an initial general discussion.
