So, uh, why comics for the theme of the 19th Session of 23min of Ska? Honestly, because I l dig them. Comics were my first pop culture love. Sure, television and movies were OK, but I never had strong allegiances to any show or franchise. But then I found comics… oh man, it was on! I was mostly a news stand kid before eventually finding my way to the specialty stores, one of which I ended up working at in my 20s. A few years later I got into ska, so they’re both foundational blocks of who I am, so why not combine my love of each, for better or worse, over the next few months! So yeah, these are my favorite comics I’m paying tribute to, with my favorite bands. If you haven’t heard of either, go check them out!
