Kevin Alvir, Punk Rock Freedom, and 'Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar'

If Jack Kirby tabled at SPX, 'Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar' is the comic he'd be selling.

Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar Kevin Alvir

We return from New York Comic-Con, bursting with stories and conversations. We've never had a show quite like this one, where every corner revealed some incredible new encounter and discussion. Cartoonist Kevin Alvir was there, sliding his way through artist alley, riding high, after recently launching his new graphic novel Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar: Attack of the Snack.

Having barely absorbed all that we did, we try to put it all on the record in this episode, recapping as much as we could while still teasing future CBCC sessions. We discuss the creators we hobnobbed alongside, the comic book podcasters we finally met in person, and all the weird food we jammed into our bodies.

Most importantly, we hang out with Kevin Alvir. Our chat delves into his first-time experience with an editor, how he arrived at his Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar aesthetic, and why punk rock feeds a need that concerto piano never will. And, by the way, neither is better or worse than the other.

As always, Omnibus, the Digital Comic Store and Reader, sponsors our Referrals segment. This week, we selected two comic book titles available on the app that satisfyingly align with this episode's themes. We won't spoil what they are here, but if you click the links below, you'll be immediately escorted to the books.

Continue the conversation with Kevin Alvir by following him on Instagram and Twitter. Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitaris currently available from Top Shelf Productions, wherever fine comic books are sold. You can find your nearest shop here.
