Comics for Grownups Episode 35 with Alex Rothman is now out on iTunes. Direct RSS link for Android users here, or listen on the Web here.


This episode we’re joined by Liana Finck, whose book A Bintel Brief was just published by Ecco. It’s fantastic and you should go buy it; you can check out a review of it on NPR here. We discuss that book and other parts of Liana’s career in comics, and then review:

The Undertaking of Lily Chen by Danica Novgorodoff

Fire Theater by Keren Katz

Sonatina #1 and #2, edited by Scott Longo

The Sleep of Reason: An Anthology of Horror, edited by C. Spike Trotman

Memory Palaces by Edie Fake (and here’s the article and Vimeo clip we reference)


Finally, Alex and some colleagues are releasing a new literary journal for comics poetry called INK BRICK. It’s available for preorder here. And Josh Bayer, a friend of the show and upcoming guest, has a Kickstarter going for the newest edition of his Suspect Device anthology.*
