On this week’s Comics Syllabus, we look into “Snow Angels,” a Comixology Originals series by Jeff Lemire and Jock, now three issues into its second season. “Snow Angels” can be found here free for Comixology Unlimited or Amazon Prime subscribers.

Then, on our “Polybagged” segment about new comics in shops, Paul INADVERTENTLY figures out that he’s completely Lemire-centric this week. Along with “Snow Angels,” we look at:

“Ascender” #18 by Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen (Image)

“The Unbelievable Unteens” #1 by Jeff Lemire and Tyler Crook (Dark Horse)

and coming up soon, “Mazebook” #1 (Dark Horse, Sept 8) and “Primordial” #1 with Andrea Sorrentino (Image, Sept 15).

Let’s admire this deft engineer of comics whose heft mirrors our life and years: Jeff Lemire!

Now, you can SHAPE THE FUTURE (of this podcast):

What should Comics Syllabus do for our next “Long Read,” where we make a reading schedule and discuss a longer series for a couple months? Our choices for you to vote on:

“Bone” by Jeff Smith (Cartoon)
“Y the Last Man” by Brian K. Vaughan & Pia Guerra (DC/Vertigo)
“Secret Coders” by Gene Yang & Mike Holmes (First Second)
“Runaways” by Rainbow Rowell & Anka & Genolet (Marvel)

…and Paul’s looking for feedback to make Comics Syllabus better! Y’know, it’s one of those Google Form surveys. Respond to as little or as much as you please. Check it out here: https://forms.gle/eMVocv6M8LxTBzgv5
