In this episode Sean and Brandon discuss the comics from 2012 that took what could typically found in underground comics and did something interesting with them. We look at what Micheal Deforge’s Lose #4, how he’s changing the anthology pattern and everything else he’s doing in some depth.
We talk about the seering honestly of Sad Sex by Heather Benjamin that takes a beloved underground comix trope, sad sex, to a completely brutal, original and peerless place.
We look at a bunch of comics taking the well-trodden teenage/early-20s loser stories to strange new places.
And to finish we talk about Derf’s My Friend Dahmer, a level-headed, painfully honest account of what Dahmer’s pre-infamy teenage years were like from someone who was actually there.
