Comics Deserve Better Episode 8: Fearscape by Ryan O’Sullivan, Andrea Mutti, Vladmir Popov, and Andworld Design

Brian, Darci, and Logan court controversy yet again by discussing the news about the Keanu Reeves/BOOM! Studios KickStarter BRZKR as well as the announcement of the 4 Kids Walk Into the Bank film and the 2020 Ignatz Awards. But the main event of the episode is a discussion of Ryan O’Sullivan and Andrea Mutti‘s Vault Comics fantasy series Fearscape. Two of our hosts liked this book, but one was definitely drinking the haterade. You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out who’s who. Finally, other comics mentioned in this episode include Tartarus, Akagami no Shirayukihime, Grendel Kentucky, Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix, Seance Tea Party, and Powers: The Best Ever.

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Baloney & Friends (Disney Hyperion) – A really cute graphic novel for young readers. Check out our review.

Black Widow #1 (Marvel) – Black Widow is back in her own series! We’ve read the first issue and we’re beyond intrigued by this spy/action series.

DCeased: Dead Planet #3 (DC Comics) – What’s in the “green” on the other side of the world? We find out and it’s interesting! A lot is dropped this issue about the real threat at hand.

Grendel Kentucky #1 (AWA Studios) – A small town has a monster they sacrifice a person to every season but, what happens when the town breaks that deal?

Inkblot #1 (Image Comics) – Emma Kubert and Rusty Gladd’s new high-fantasy epic series about a sorceress attempting to correct her greatest mistake.

Lonely Receiver #1 (AfterShock) – A horror/breakup story in five parts.

Marvel Zombies Resurrection #1 (Marvel) – A new volume and take on the popular Marvel Zombies series. It’s a familiar plot but well done and we’re excited to see where it all goes.

My Little Pony/Transformers #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue caught us off guard at how well it worked and how fun it was. We’re excited to see what else the series has up its sleeve.

Strange Adventures #5 (DC Comics) – The series is a long game in that each issue is just a slice of the bigger puzzle. A threat looms over Earth and Adam Strange may be the one who has to save it.
