A different kind of episode. More informal and chatty, "Review Session with Sonny" is where Paul tries to convince his brother Sonny, a somewhat erstwhile comics reader, to read widely and dig deep, and Sonny comes back with his honest responses and appraisals.
Comics we discuss:
Paul’s “Pick Remender”: Mother Panic 3, by Jody Houser and Tommy Lee Edwards (DC/Young Animal) and Jessica Jones 5, by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos (Marvel)
Paul’s “TryMe Hernandez”: SP4RX by Wren McDonald (Nobrow)
Paul’s “Fail Simone”: Weekly Shonen Jump’s “We Never Learn”
Paul’s “Elsa Chart-top-ier”: Black Monday Murders by Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker (Image)
Study Comics with Paul is a comics analysis podcast. It’s like a comics seminar, but the only prerequisite is love. I’m Paul, a literacy researcher, English teacher, and comics reader, and every week I take a work from a wide range of comics and apply various approaches to analysis.
