#349 Expanding comics’ audience, pt 1

Recently asked on our Facebook group: What would you do if you controlled Marvel and/or DC? This led to another question: How can comics, particularly in the US, gain a larger audience?

No one’s really sure of the answer to the second question, but its a good springboard for podcast discussion of comics evangelism and the state of the industry in general. What role will digital comics play? In the first installment of an occasional series, Tim bounces these questions off our friend Tom Spurgeon.

This month, the Freaks are back on format and spend the vast bulk of the episode desperately trying to bring some much needed attention to a neat little super-hero flick that just appeared outta nowhere, with no fanfare whatsoever, and could really use a box-office boost ’cause, strangely, absolutely no one seems to be talking about it.

Two True Freaks! Episode 67 – Comics Monthly Monday #10

COMICSMM10pic

TOO….MUCH… COMICS ……..FOR A HUMAN TO ENDURE! In another crammed-full episode, the Freaks somehow find the time to talk about their usual Walking Dead, Superman Family, and Swamp Thing comics while also fielding letters, crank calls, bad sound effects, and bad jokes. They rejoice/lament nerdom’s seemingly new-found pop culture credibility and ponder whether old-fashioned paper comics are going to get Kindled to death. Also — another heartfelt plea by Scott to check out Jonah Hex! Don’t miss it!
