This week, Paul talks about “Asadora!” volumes 1-4 by Naoki Urasawa (Viz) and “Marshmallow & Jordan” by Alina Chau (First Second), two comics that have provided wonder and delight in hard times. (Those chats begin around 27:40 on the podcast.)

But first, Paul talks about some comics he’s been teaching and reading, including “Secret Coders” by Gene Yang and Mike Holmes (First Second) and “Long Way Down” by Jason Reynolds and Danica Novgorodoff (Atheneum).

From comic shops, Paul discusses “I Am Batman” by John Ridley and various artists (DC), “Shang-Chi” by Gene Yang and Dike Ruan (Marvel), “Compass” by Robert Mackenzie & Dave Walker and Justin Greenwood (Image), and a few others.

And Paul also chats about some updates on Substack comics. Thanks for listening!
