Episode 254: This episode: We are joined by long time friend of the show Art Lyon in the first of two episodes. On this show, we look at his work on Batman Widening Gyre, his views on the work of a colorist, Batman’s interesting history, his upcoming projects and much much more.
We also have a few listener voicemails and emails.
This is a slightly longer episode of CBP in which we recap the Pittsburgh Comicon and talk about Blue Estate #1, G.I. Joe Cobra Civil War #0, Ninjabitch #3, NonPlayer #1, Ultimate Captain America #4, Wingman #1, and X-Factor #218.
Also, Duke came up with a new segment called “The Oh Sh!t Moment”. This week’s contenders, Soulless Strong Guy vs Super Soldier Hammer Fight.
Comic Book Pitt theme music is by Nik Furious. You can find more of Nik’s music on iTunes.
In this episode we talk about Dark Horse Digital App, Graphicly Debuts on Nook Color, a VERY lucky comic book collector and Lex Luthor returns to Smallville. Of course, that also leads into talking about the Superman suit on Smallville. We also talk about the Avengers starting filming. In our comics section we talk about Green Lantern, Green Lantern and Green Lantern. We also have CCL’s Pick of the Week, Prediction Fiction and Jason Dyer’s Rapid Fire Reviews. Hold on tight while we squeeze in both Fanboy Wars AND Fanboy Feedback. You can always call us at 239-244-BUZZ, that’s 239-244-2899!
Network Solutions, the recent host of shatterdaycomics.com somehow managed to lose all of our data. As part of the task of rebuilding Shatterday, we also need to get all of our Shattercast subscribers over to our new servers. Now, as geeky as I am, most of that geek skill is used for remembering comic trivia and not learning how to work ‘the internet’. I think I’ve figured it out. If this brief podcast makes it to your iTunes, then this is a happy day. If not, then somewhere on the Canadian Prairies a man will be swearing kicking things.
Well, it took a little bit, but episode 19 is finally here! After we get through a couple of emails, Superman takes on a new foe, then teams up with Green Arrow to save face, deals with his satanic son(?), and faces off with an Indian medicine man again (sorta!). Plus, we see what else was going on in the DCU this month.

This episode Mike goes on a rant about the lack of readers on some of his favorite Image titles as well as jumping up and down mad about the future of HAUNT. We then dive into reviews and cover more books than we’ve ever covered before. And then we finish up with a great email from Louis Kwok that ended up awarding him with a prize! You’re jealous I know!
