Supercontext: The Divided States of Hysteria by Howard Chaykin

This controversial comic series about terrorism and identity politics predicts a dystopia that not everyone is willing to agree with. We look at the angry arguments from both Howard Chaykin and his detractors about whether this is artistic expression or just shock value. And… we ask what no one else seems to address. Does Chaykin’s story successfully meet its intended goal?

Supercontext: My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris

We look into the story behind-the-scenes of this surprisingly profound comic: from Ferris’ struggle with West Nile virus, to the book’s seizure en route through the Panama Canal. In addition, we discuss Ferris’ theme of “personal monster dilemmas” and how the process of creating this was like melting valuable dross from gold.

Supercontext: Girl In A Band, by Kim Gordon

This memoir by a music icon was expected to be a tell-all about scandal and betrayal. But we discuss how it’s actually about defense mechanisms that give the illusion of cool confidence.
