Shortbox Showcase #008

60 Comics Everyone Should Read (part 2 of 3)

Using a recent article from Buzzfeed as their jumping off point, Professor Alan and Emily continue to work through the list of the comic book "canon." Emily expresses her love for creature actor Doug Jones, we talk about two critically acclaimed "literary" graphic novels, and the tensions between readers of comics and manga are addressed ... in the shortbox.

We would love to have your feedback on this episode!

  1. Every single person that is a fan of sequential art should read Lone Wolf and Cub. Those that are already fans should listen to the podcast.

    1. Now that I have read one (see episode 12), I heartily agree about LW & c.

    2. Dark Horse has recently been releasing Omnibi that look pretty cool. I have a full run of the DH 28 volume run from the early 2000's.
