My look at non-superhero comics throughout DC’s 80-year history continues with the crime-drama genre and to represent that, I’ve chosen the 1988 miniseries Cinder and Ashe, which was written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (praise be his name). It’s a story about two private investigators looking for a missing girl and getting drawn into a political conspiracy that involves a man from their past they both thought dead.
This episode is part of the #ConwayXover, a crossover among several podcasts that will be celebrating the work of Gerry Conway as well as putting a spotlight on issues concerning creator equity in comics. Special thanks to Michael Bradley for inviting me on board!
