Comics in Crime Fiction – Podcast

The Crime Scene with Eryk PruittOn the latest episode of THE CRIME SCENE WITH ERYK PRUITT, Eryk spoke to Alex Segura (editor at Dark Circle Comics), Tyler Jenkins (artist on the comic series SNOW BLIND), and me about comics in crime fiction.

Our hour-long conversation — which was extremely enjoyable to be a part of; hopefully, it’s also enjoyable to listen to! — aired this morning on WCOM 103.5 FM in Carrboro, North Carolina.

If you missed it there, you can catch it on The Crime Scene’s iTunes podcast feed, or listen right here!

 
In addition to his work at Dark Circle (where, among other things, he edits THE BLACK HOOD), Alex is the author of the Miami crime novels SILENT CITY and DOWN THE DARKEST STREET, both coming out this year from Polis Books. He also wrote comic books like the best-selling and critically acclaimed ARCHIE MEETS KISS storyline, the “Occupy Riverdale” story and the upcoming ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES.

In addition to SNOW BLIND, Tyler Jenkins has written and/or done the artwork on comics like PETER PANZERFAUST, NEVERBOY, and THE CHAINING.

Snow Blind – Great Crime Comic

Snow Blind #1SNOW BLIND is a great crime comic. I’ve read issues #1 and #2, can’t wait for #3 and #4 (it’s a mini-series).

The story is superb (a teenager learns some pretty deep secrets about his parents) and the art fits the tone perfectly. Definitely recommended. It’s available in print from Boom! Studios and also on Comixology.

SNOW BLIND is written by Ollie Masters with art by Tyler Jenkins.
