The Comics Syllabus podcast returns with…

A graphic novel review of “The Dragon Path,” the new book by Ethan Young from Scholastic’s Graphix imprint. The young prince of the Wong Clan has to lead his people through a fraught journey to the Old Land through the Dragon Path! One of our favorite graphic novel creators, Ethan Young, has a new book out for young readers that builds an intriguing fantasy world set in an Asian backdrop and featuring fun characters, along with Young’s characteristic lively art.

And then, a segment we’re now calling “PolyBagged,” where I talk up some of the new comics out this week that I’m finding interesting. This week, we spend time talking about:

“Black Panther” #25 by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Daniel Acuña, Brian Stelfreeze, and Laura Martin (Marvel)

“Shadecraft” #3 by Joe Henderson, Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela (Image)

“Blue Flame” #1 by Christopher Cantwell, Adam Gorham, Kurt Michael Russell (Vault)

“Bitter Root” #13 by David F. Walker, Chuck Brown, and Sanford Greene (Image)

and “Batman Black and White” #6 by various spectacular artists and writers (DC)

…along with a huge list of honorable mentions for this week.
