    Welcome to the Comics Syllabus podcast, where we read widely and we dig deep. Your host Paul, a literacy researcher and English teacher, introduces curious readers to a range of current and classic comics, and then engages in closer discussion and analysis of a certain title with comics critics, creators, scholars, and teachers.

    On this week’s Comics Syllabus podcast, Paul is joined by fellow Multiversity contributor Matt Lune to discuss the classic “Astro City” by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson from DC/Vertigo and Image Comics.

    But first, in the “General Ed” segment, Paul recommends comics to inform, educate, and inspire in the wake of white supremacist violence and action, and the counteraction on different scales in response.

    In the General Ed segment, Paul mentions a past episode of this podcast discussing March by Lewis, Powell, and Aydin: https://soundcloud.com/twoplai/paul-list-2016-08-05-march-book-3-by-lewis-aydin-powell-top-shelf
