Welcome back to Waiting on the Trade, a monthly comics book club for people who don’t have time for monthly comics!
In this episode, guest host Callum Smith (repeatedly) gives the gift of great comics, as we discuss Alexis Deacon’s Geis: A Matter of Life and Death.
This episode’s explanations, observations, and links of note include:
- Pat noted that this book (which is available only as a physical book) smells great, which led me down a rabbit hole of figuring out why books smell good.
- If you want to check out the interviews with Alexis Deacon that I read to prep for this recording, you can find them here, here, and here.
- Cal plugged Gosh! Comics again, so I will too!
- I found that “Backstory. Not interested.” panel from Batman & Robin, which is still one of my favorite comic book moments.
- Pat made me look up the term “murderhobo,” and I figured y’all might be interested.
- I tried and failed to find a decoding of Geis‘s inside covers … if you know what those covers say, be sure to let us know!
