It’s the first podcast of the new decade! Happy 2020 everyone!
We will be covering a comic this week and it is a very interesting one – in both story and format.
The comic is called Sara – it is the tale of a Russian sniper during WW II. It is written by Garth Ennis with art by Steve Epting and coloring by Elizabeth Breitweiser. It is published by TKO Studios.
The format of this comic is very interesting to me. TKO Studios has a very unique business model. They only release 6 issue stories and they release the issues all at once. You can purchase them in a trade paperback or in 6 issues in a collectors case. Their model is binge reading. Here are some of Steve Epting and Elizabeth Breitweiser’s work on the covers:
As I mentioned, the story is great – a well paced story with moments of quiet introspection juxtaposed with pages of violent action. Here is an example of the interior art work. Garth’s words and Epting/Breitweiser’s interiors make this book a pleasure to read.
Jon and I highly recommend picking up this book. We talk about the pros and cons of TKO’s business models and does it make us want to purchase more of their products? (spoilers – it does).
