On this week’s Comics Syllabus pod, I make star-eyes emojis at the litany of New Comics at Substack, covered by Multiversity here and at the Comics Syllabus Substack here. And (at 52:55) we look a little deeper at “STARSIGNS” by Saladin Ahmed, Megan Levens, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Shawn Lee, and Heather Antos, available for free at Copper Bottle. First, a warning: I let slip a spoiler for The Book of Boba Fett at around 7:00-7:10, so if you’re trying to stay away from those, SORRY and BE FOREWARNED! Skip past that moment at 7:00 if you’re keeping ears pure for the Disney+ show’s surprises. Also, in the intro I tease some talk about “Fantastic Four” #14-19’s arc, “Point of Origin,” but I ran out of time. So we’ll save that for a future chat!

"Best Friends" by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham! "Might Jack and Zita the Spacegirl" by Ben Hatke! "Hilda and the Mountain King" by Luke Pearson! This week, @TwoPlai is joined by his first (and admittedly favorite) guest host of the new Comics Syllabus era-- Cohost Kid! We talk about a couple books from First Second that are the next installments of really fun kids comics series. Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham's "Best Friends" is a follow up to "Real Friends" that autobiographically explores friendships and worries of the latter half of elementary school for Hale. Ben Hatke's culmination of both his "Mighty Jack" AND "Zita the Spacegirl" series has also just come out. And we also talk about NoBrow's new "Hilda and the Mountain King," book number six for Luke Pearson's awesome "Hilda" series. Let's dig deep!
