Ben Passmore’s new “Sports is Hell” from Koyama Press satirically sends up our intertwined sports, politics, and cultural madnesses. Paul and Johnny dig deep into the short graphic novel.
But first, our “Picks and Shovels” (What We’re Reading) include:
Johnny: “The Last God” (DC Black Label), “Nancy” by Olivia Jaimes (Andrews McMeel), “East of West” (Image Comics)
P: “Commute: An Illustrated Memoir of Female Shame” by Erin Williams (Abrams), “Wonder Woman Dead Earth” #1 (DC Black Label), “Criminal” #12 (Image Comics), and the upcoming “Dragon Hoops” (First Second)
Look forward to our upcoming deep dives into “Little Bird” (Image Comics) and “Pretty Deadly: The Rat” (Image Comics)
