After much anticipation and fiddling about, our show if finally up. We had a little bit of a problem with a FTP sever being switched out, but now it’s fine and we’re all set to go.
It’s hard to believe, but this month marks the second anniversary for the Comic Book Pitt podcast. As we look ahead to Year Three, we can still remember the very first episode we recorded; it took us two hours to figure out how to record a one hour show and then another two hours to edit it.
We’ve come a long way, baby.
This is an all-review episode in which we discuss Superior #2, Avengers #7, Batman: The Return, Batman, Inc. #1, Detective Comics #871, Uncanny X-Men #530 and Halcyon #1.
Comic Book Pitt theme music is by Nik Furious. You can find more of Nik’s music on iTunes.
Episode 233: David Baron is back !!!: We’re chatting with friend of the show David Baron about Detective Comics 871. We are also joined by Myron Rumsey to discuss Brightest Day 14, Power Girl 18 (briefly), Green Lantern Corps 54 and Green Lantern 49. Listener Voicemails return with the first in a series of catchup episodes! We will be airing all of them.
Believe it or not, I met a very pretty and nice actress, Laura Allen, the day of recording. She’s not that famous but she is good in her roles and you’ve probably seen her work. I then talk about two movies I recently seen, Inception and Scott Pilgrim. One of those was good. Spoiler alert.
Lastly, you can hear me trip over my own tongue as I finish the series and try to explain the trippy and Biblical, Testament: Exodus (Douglas Ruskhoff, Liam Sharp) and of course, mispronounce things.
Superman is one of the most iconic characters in American comics. Even people who don’t read comics (and perhaps haven’t seen the movies either) have some familiarity with him. While Tim is not a DC reader, Kumar is somewhat of a fan, especially of Silver Age Superman stories. Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s All Star Superman mines those Silver Age stories for wackiness, but then infuses the wacky ideas with thoughtfulness and heart. Kumar, finally back from vacation, joins Tim to review.
The year may be coming to an end, but the good reads keep going strong! Pick Of The Week goes to Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez for Locke & Key: Keys To The Kingdom #3 (IDW).
