Today on the Comics Syllabus podcast, Paul is joined by Multiversity writer Kent Falkenberg to discuss "Sweet Tooth" by Jeff Lemire from DC/Vertigo. We discuss loss, longing, and the post-apocalyptic animal hybrid survivalist scenario. Kent’s work at Multiversity: http://www.multiversitycomics.com/author/kfalkenberg
And in the opening "General Ed" segment, Paul talks to Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou of "Strip Panel Naked": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYJAToPH5GSGShP7Yoc3jsA
and the new "PanelxPanel" comics criticism digital magazine: http://panelxpanel.com
SPOILER WARNING: The opening "General Ed" segment and the beginning of our discussion about "Sweet Tooth" does not contain spoilers, but soon (around 46:40 ), we start diving into close-readings of the chosen work. So if you don’t want to be spoiled on the events and details of this work, please go and read it first, and come back to finish the episode with us and enjoy it with us. Consider it homework, but more fun!
LANGUAGE WARNING: This episode contains some tastefully used swears. Hide the children.
WEIRD SOUND WARNING: Please excuse Paul’s voice getting warped at around 1:10:00 – 1:20:00 — Paul sounds like he’s turned into a Slug Monster but luckily Kent is articulate as ever!
NEXT WEEK on the Comics Syllabus: creator Ethan Young talks to us about his Eisner nominated Nanjing: The Burning City (Dark Horse), The Battles of Bridget Lee (Dark Horse), and Pilgrim Finch (STELA).
