The Standard Gets Podcast Love!

On the latest episode of the We Talk Comics podcast, the review team featured some of their favorite recent independent comics. One book that got a mention was The Standard #1! The panel had some really nice things to say about the series, with one saying it was comparable in quality to Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman’s Animal Man, and another saying he’d rank it above any of DC’s New 52! Of course, that’s high praise I’m not going to agree with (I hope one day I can make comics half as well as Jeff Lemire), but all the same it’s very flattering, and I’m incredibly grateful for the mention.
The gang starts talking about The Standard at around the 48:30 mark. Also, if you’re interested, fellow ComixTribe title The Red Ten, by Tyler James and Cesar Feliciano, also gets some rave reviews, starting from 34:55. Check it out! Thanks again to the whole We Talk Comics team for the mention.
Remember, The Standard #1 is available from Indyplanet, priced at $3.99. You can also buy it digitally for $1.99 from Graphicly, Wowio, DriveThruComics and MyDigitalComics. The Standard #2 is also available now via IndyPlanet for $3.99, and digitally from Graphicly, Wowio,DriveThruComics and MyDigitalComics, priced at $1.99. Readers in the Glasgow area can also pick up both issues from Forbidden Planet, A1 Comics and Plan B Books. The Standard #3 is due for a January 2012 release.
