Under the Comic Covers ends where it began four years ago, with The Walking Dead. We found it fitting and appropriate for this book to be the final issue we dive into.

Under the Comic Covers

Under the Comic Covers has the distinct pleasure of talking about two fantastic issues of two fantastic books in this episode. We open with The Walking Dead #174, giving us our best look yet at Negan's inner-self as well as giving us, the readers, some well earned closure for a couple of characters. We then move on to Paper Girls #18, where we get some much needed exposition which completely alters our view of the various players in this particular story.

Under the Comic Covers is very pleased to discuss three great books in what was a fantastic week for comics. First up, we talk about The Walking Dead #172, giving us one hell of a cliffhanger. We move on to the 19th century and delve into Manifest Destiny #31. Finally we travel through time once again and land in the year 2000 as we have a confused chat about Paper Girls #16.

More Episodes

This week, Under the Comic Covers is about one comic and one comic only (not counting the three different comics we discuss in Top of the Stack, which really makes this a four comic issue, but not really because we only do a top three on The Walking Dead and only one of the other three are actually part of Top of the Stack because Mr. Blahg decided to throw in another book because... uhhhh... I don't know), The Walking Dead #138: Confrontation.

This issue of The Walking Dead gives us ample opportunity to take our time and really go over every detail, to think about actions and consequences, and we spend plenty of time going over the issue.

Our Top of the Stack picks are diverse as can be... Mr. Blahg goes with a new Dark Horse comic, Never Boy by Shaun Simon and Tyler Jenkins (and manages to slilp in a pitch for David Lapham's recent Stray Bullets series, Killers and Sunshine and Roses), while Grace tackles the sweet levity of Image Comic's Oddly Normal by Otis Frampton.
