Indie Spotlight #4: Cinebooks Et Bande Dessinées

Remember that "mini-episode" we promised to tide everyone over until Rodent Wars?

Dylan, & Nicole decided to do an epsiode devoted to Cinebook, a UK publisher that brings French language graphic albums to the US.  We focused on the first chapters of two very different series. Queen Margot, the story of a princess growing up in France during the time of the Huguenots. And Orbital, a series (at this point) about two intergalactic space cops trying to keep the peace in a society where strife and distrust between species is the norm. This is just a sampling of all of the amazing stories in this publisher's catalog. Do yourself a favor and check out some 9th art bande dessinée.

Also, Dylan wants to apologize to Sylvain Runberg for butchering the pronunciation of his last name. 

The intro music is "Pegase" by Thomas Fersen


Our next episode will be Rodent Wars: Mice Templar V. Mouse Guard. Bryan J. L. Glass & Michael Avon Oeming's sprawling mouse knight epic is going up against David Petersen's beautifully rendered tale of mice defending the realm. We promise, there's a larger distinction between them than a semantic minefield. Hear the largest assemblage of the crew battle it out over which book about chivalrous tiny mammals deserves to capture the hearts and minds of the comic community!


Next we have an interview with Jeremy Whitley the author of Princeless, and The Order of Dagonet. He has the first issue of Dagonet and a Princeless one-shot coming out in July, plus he's got a couple Glyph awards and Eisner Nominations under his belt. We can't wait to talk to him about where he got the inspiration for this critically acclaimed series!


Our next featured book will be Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Just in time for Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, we will be taking an in-depth look at the story that re-invented the Batman. It's another controversial book for the crew, so be sure to hear the raucous battle that is sure to ensue.

Thank you all for your continued support. We appreciate your patience, and we have quite a few episodes lined up over the next few months so expect more creator interviews and indie spotlights.
