Kings Comics is holding a Zine Fair this Saturday the 6th of August, so to celebrate we invited independent comic makers Jonathon Valenzuela (The Tilted Page) and Andrew Rolfe (Halloween Alley Comics, Catnapped) to come talk about how they started making their own comics and which creators inspired their work. To celebrate indie comics in general, we also invited Shane ‘Dodgy’ Tydeman, host of indie comics podcast Flipside Focus, to recommend some titles he’s enjoyed recently.

Find most of the comics we talk about in this episode at the Kings Comics Zine Fair this Saturday! Jon and Andrew will be selling their zines and there’s 25% off all indie comics in store. From 11am till 3pm at Kings Comics, 310 Pitt St, Sydney.

36 of last week's comic books, read and reviewed, from the soaring highs of new series like Snotgirl, Black Hammer and Sombra - to the crippling lows of all our favourite Marvel series being forced to tie into Civil War II and the disappointing mediocrity of half of these new DC Rebirth titles. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll regret spending hundreds of dollars on comics each week. Just kidding, you'll just laugh.

We reviewed more comics this week than we did in our first two episodes combined, so to keep things orderly we used a timer and diplomatically gave each comic just two minutes of review time. Enjoy this slightly more frantic episode of Serious Issues and pray that we don't start using a timer just to read the rapidly increasing stack of comics we read each week!
