Three Panel Contrast

Ep 12 - My Faith in Frankie & Highest House

August 1, 2019

It's all Mike Carey all the time this episode with a comparison of Highest House (art by Peter Gross) and My Faith in Frankie (art by Sonny Liew and Marc Hempel). We explore the role of religion, faith and deism in comics, the challenges that the medium poses for high fantasy works, and the collaborative nature of the form itself, whilst also taking a slight aside to discuss the possible symbolic meaning of a person getting weed-whacked in the genitals. We will also feature a review of the academic text "Graven Images: Religion in Comic Books and Graphic Novels," edited by A. David Lewis and Christine Hoff Kraemer.
