Around Comics Ep. 032
The panel discusses how we’ve tried to shed the collector mentality.
Listen to stories of selling collections, trading individual runs for hardcovers and why selling your comics isn’t admitting defeat. We talk about slabbing books, using comic stores as a library, downloading comics, and storing comics. Wordballoon’s John Siuntres drops by to talk comics, conventions and podcasting.
Here we are, it’s the second part of our 10th episode mega show! Sean Whelan of Raging Bullets, and Vince Bonavoglia of the Comic Geek Speak Forums join David and I as we go in depth on the ending of Infinite Crisis. Did it succeed in its attempt to be one of the greatest stories in the history of DC Comics? Are there things we would have liked to turn out differently? Should characters have lived who died, and died who lived? How obvious was it that _______ had lost his powers in issue 7? And most importantly…did it deliver on all that it promised to deliver in issue 1 by the time issue 7 came around? A warning that SPOILERS for Infinite Crisis are ahead, so if you’re one of the 2 people who have not read it yet (I keed, I keed), you may want to skip this one.
Vince has his take, which is significantly different than what Sean felt about things, while David and I take our sides as well. This was was plenty of fun, and altogether, Episode 10 is in my opinion our best episode yet. I also would like you folks to comment on the sound quality if you can, as I made some adjustments on which filters I use post production so that we all sounds close to the same level. As always, you can e-mail Comic Timing over at firstname.lastname@example.org, and don’t forget to vote over at Podcast Alley!
