CCL Podcast #152 – The 2007 Year in Review

Collected Comics Library Podcast #152

36,337Kb; 76m 59s

It’s time once again for the 2007 Year in Review show. Unlike past years I decided not to have individual “Best of” categories and instead do a Top 10 list.
As you can see I also broke the podcast down with time stamps.
I urge you all to use this particular CCL episode as a tool and guide. It should be taken in smell doses because it’s just a ton of information to get in just over an hour. Download it and listen to it at you convenience. Also be sure to download the Complete 2007 Collected Editions Release Schedule, so you can read along.

Around Comics Ep. 161 – Holiday Hangover


This week, our Heroes of the Holidays Tom, Skottie, Sal, Chris, Norton and Hank get together to spread some cheer. We’re full of the Christmas Spirit, and a bunch of small bottles of booze. In Top of the Stack, Chris leads us on a marathon of Stackables, including The Trial of Captain Sweeto and Other Stories: A Collection of the Comic Strips of the Perry Bible Fellowship, The Overman #1, The Goon: Chinatown, Green Lantern #25, Popgun Vol. 1, and The Infinite Horizon #1.

Meanwhile…We find all the reasons why Sal has not finished reading I Am Legend, how old Tom’s girlfriend really is, how The Golden Compass turned Skottie into a Baby Jesus Killer, whether or not Nick Hornby can write skaters and why Tony Hawk is not relevant, how a sixteen year old may react to getting a girl pregnant, the War of Iraqi Aggression and Sal’s defense of liberty, we give thanks for the cards and gifts we received, we call Braxton to wish him well, and we finish off the show by reading emails.

KomicsKast – #90 – THOR – Journey Into Mystery 83 – 88

Join Mr. Lyle Tucker, Van Reid, and myself Bruce Rosenberger, as we re-examine the first six Thor stories from Journey Into Mystery issues 83 through 88. After we provide a synopsis for each story, we examine the stories and art, and we try to track the genesis of a great character while also putting the stories into Marvel’s Historical Perspective.

We’re just three guys who first discovered Thor over 40 years ago, but we hope that you’ll join us for the first of what we hope will be many, episodes as we try to define what makes this great character great.

(BTW- if you’ve got a copy of the first Thor Marvel Masterworks, the first Thor Essentials, or a subscription to the new Marvel Comics Digital Comics site, it might be helpful to have the book or website on hand as we do occasionally reference panels and pages in various stories.)
