Coffee & Heroes Podcast Starting Points
When I first properly got into US comics, Wizard Magazine was still around giving various book recommendations. Best runs, best storylines or just what books to read and by whom. Well I was looking for a quick podcast to listen to finish by daily walk and noticed that Coffee & Heroes had started a new series in that vein: Starting Points. They have done an episode for Batman and one for Spider-man but the one I picked was for Alien. Roddy McCance, always the one to go independent on their Book Club Episodes (also recommended for picking up good suggestions), goes through a brief history of Alien comics, a select few that would be good for newbies along with some favourites of his. Always interesting to get a creator’s view on these things. Worth a listen. I have a few Alien books to try.
