Wayne’s Comics #114 With Pete Casazza

Wayne's Comics, Wayne Hall, Archie Comics, Afterlife with Archie, The Fox, DC Comics, Marvel, Hawkeye, Saga

We kick off the new 2014 year with a look at how things are going on the front lines of the comics industry – in a popular local comics shop in the U.S.!

You’ll enjoy my chat with Pete Casazza from the Big Planet Comics store in College Park, Maryland. Pete is both a fan and a businessman in the industry, so he notices trends and interesting developments in his shop. He talks about what went up and what went down in 2013, and discusses digital comics as well as how he feels many of the comics companies are doing. We both had to say how well Archie/Red Circle is doing with Afterlife with Archie and The Fox. He surprises me with many of his insights, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening! You can find out more about his excellent store at this link!

Be back next week so we can continue to enjoy our comics in 2014!

Trick or Treating Has Never Been So Graphic

The Two Guys with PhDs Talking about Comics return with their 2013 Halloween Special! In this episode, Gene and Derek discuss a variety of this year’s Halloween special issues, very recent horror titles, and series annuals themed to the season. (We know, we know…Halloween Classics: Graphic Classics, Vol. 23 came out in 2012, but we weren’t able to discuss this book last year, so we wanted to be sure we did so this time around.) They cover a lot of ground, highlighting as many new Halloween titles as they can, recommending most with a severed thumbs up. The titles they discuss include:Halloween2013

So put on your favorite homemade costume, slap on a little ghoulish greasepaint, grab your pumpkin head bucket, walk like a zombie, and enjoy the sweet, nougaty treats (no tricks here) of The Comics Alternative 2013 Halloween Special!

The music in this special Halloween episode is brought to you by
