KomicsKast #41 Silver Age – Ace the Bat-hound and a new comic’s creation


We start off the show with some news and comics podcasts that you might enjoy, then a new segment wherein we will be following a new comic from it’s genesis to its being published. Next up is a Silver Age segment by Bill Jourdain (of the Golden Age of Comics) in which he tells us about Ace the Bat-hound, and finally, if you still feel like listening, a segment discussing digital comics and hardware that can make them a reality.

Comic Timing – Episode 19

Tonight, Comic Timing goes to the movies! Well, comic book movies at least. We discuss every comic movie we can think of, meaning we go from the good, to the bad, to the so incredibly awful it makes you want to burn your eyes to stop the images from getting to your brain. Yep, we even mention Catwoman. Along the way, the three of us give our thoughts on how Marvel and DC can keep their franchises alive and kicking, what makes Independent Comic movies special, and we read the thoughts of some of our forum members too.

Next week, Comic Timing celebrates episode 20 as we welcome the artist of Athena Voltaire, Steve Bryant to the show to discuss idependent comics, his career as an artist, and a whole lot more. If you would like to send in questions or comments for us to pass onto Steve, make sure to do so over at comictiming@gmail.com, and please vote for Comic Timing over at Podcast Alley.

Also, for anyone who wishes to donate to Comic Timing, you can now do so via the donation button on our web site. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated, and there is no pressure to donate, as this is a venture done completely out of passion and desire to talk comics after all.

Thanks to everybody for listening and for downloading, and see you all next week.

Comic Timing – Episode 18

Episode 18 of Comic Timing is here, this time with just Matt and I talking comics. We discuss my trip down to Baltimore for the Baltimore Comic Con this past weekend, take a trip from A to Z through the Marvel U, and we go over The Harvey Awards and who they went to this year. Then finally we get into the big announcements of the week that came out of the Marvel Camp this past Monday, including the new writer and artist on Runaways, World War Hulk, and a whole lot more.

As always, you can e-mail Comic Timing at comictiming@gmail.com, and please vote for us on Podcast Alley if you get the opportunity to do so.

Comic Timing – Episode 17

Episode 17 of Conic Timing has arrived. This week, Matt S., Chris Chavez, known to some as Equinox, and myself discuss restarts vs. continuity. Should the comic companies stick with their rich histories, or would it be alright for them to reset things every now and then for the sake of new readers, and to refresh the character? It is a fun conversation, and Chris brings a lot to the table here, so I hope everybody enjoys it.

I also hope to see anyone going to Baltimore Comic Con this weekend, as I shall be roaming around on Saturday and Sunday. Should be plenty of fun to be had by all. Also, a reminder that our second 22 Pages will be Superman Confidential #1 by Darwyn Cooke and Tim Sale. Here is a link to the listing on DCBS where you can get it for a low 74 cents.

As always, you can e-mail Comic Timing at comictiming@gmail.com, and you can vote for us over at Podcast Alley.

Thanks for downloading, thanks for listening, and see you all next week.
