Buying Image Comics on Minimum Wage
Three decades long fans offer their views on “indie” comic books, which basically encompasses everything without a Marvel or DC logo. Join Diabolu Frank, Mister Joe Fixit and the Ill Mac “Illegal Machine” as they toss through titles from Image, Valiant, Dark Horse, First, Fantagraphics, IDW, Epic, Pacific, Slave Labor Graphics, Vertigo, Drawn & Quarterly, Avatar… basically everything in the shadow of the so-called “Big Two.”
Kicking it 1990s style for the debut episode as we talk the launch of Image Comics, with an emphasis on early and recent material from Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood, and Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon. Then, our spotlight original graphic novel is Bob Fingerman’s Minimum Wage Book One from 1995 for Fantagraphics Books, recently reprinted in the large Image Comics collection Maximum Minimum Wage. Also, a brief nod toward Love and Rockets.
