Quiet! Panelologists At Work – Episode 26

“The true antidote to the average comic book podcast”

Ep 26

The lads are late with an episode again, so in an attempt to make it up to you we have more Blankety Blank, a game of “who’s the best” and some November solicitations.

As per normal they discuss Countdown, World War Hulk and Skrulls, so don’t expect anything groundbreaking.

Additional music by The Meters (again)

CCL Podcast #135 – Review: Iron Man Masterworks 1


Collected Comics Library Podcast #135
37,390Kb; 39m 36s

I’m back from vacation! I couldn’t believe the activity in my Inbox when I got back home. So much news and information, I thought the computer was going to explode. And what’s this about the rumors of the demise of the DC Archive program? I dive into that on the show and share some interesting information straight from the DC offices. And speaking of DC, looks like the Showcase line is a little rattled. I’m not too worried on that front, though. Looks like some things just needed fixing. I have complete faith in that program.

As far as other news: LXG: Black Dossier, Harbringer and Dan Dare, I tell you all about them. I’ll try to cover some of DC and Marvel solicitations for November and December, respectively, next week, but I am curious as to the new What If? Annihilation book and what this may mean for an Annihilation Omnibus.

I have a new Question of the Month for September, which may or may not have anything to do with comic books and I tell you about two other podcasts making waves.

All-in-all it’s good to be back.

Chris

Wednesdays Haul 8/29/07– Back from Wizard, back to reality

wizarduniverse_1960_10046263.gifIt’s a big week as I talk about non-comic comic book geekiness. It started off with Tuesday’s release of Heroes Season 1 on DVD, stretched into Mythbusters which explored super-hero myths & gadgets and wrapped up in Harvey Pekar showing up on No Reservations on The Travel Channel. And don’t forget Greg Rucka’s new novel, Patriot Acts. And that’s not even yet getting to this week’s new comic releases.

And since it’s been a couple of week’s since Wizard World Chicago, it’s time to talk a bit about it, the successes, the failures and the awesome finds.

And since I forgot to cover it on the show, here’s the top 3 comic book releases this week:
Hellboy Darkness Calls #5
Enigma Cipher #2
Local #10

Around Comics Ep. 127 – Greg Rucka Returns

Ipod_Ep127.gifOne of the busiest writers in comics returns to Around Comics to talk about the myriad projects hitting comic shops, movie theaters, book stores and the video game market. Greg talks about the experience of being on set for the filming of Whiteout and how they made him work for the Executive Producer title. The new Atticus Kodiak novel Patriot Acts is do to hit stores this month, and we discuss the life of trained killers and the research that goes into gun fights and writing a personal security specialist. Greg talks about integrating espionage into the DC Universe with Checkmate and what we can expect from his new Question series Crime Bible. Queen And Country is on hiatus until at least 2009, but there are big changes and exciting revelations in store for fans of series to look forward to. Greg is set to begin a new PI series called Stumptown, and he talks about his love of gimmick free detective stories and how he’s bringing that to comics. We wrap up with some insight into the new Siphon Filter game and how Greg is introducing a new level of realism to the video game franchise. The episode concludes with listener e-mails and Sal’s declaration that he would eat everyone in the event of a snowstorm.
