New Stuff for the New Year
It’s a new month — and a new year! — so Derek is back at his local shop, Collected in Plano, for another on-location episode of the podcast. This time he’s joined by Collected regulars Shea, Nick, Matt, and Craig, and the discussion topic is “Comics in the New Year.” Everyone brings up the various titles, events, and pop cultural phenomenon they are looking forward to in 2015. For some, it is the wrap up of currently ongoing series and storylines, particularly Fables and Spider-Verse; the occasion of a crossover event, such as Marvel’s new Secret Wars or DC’s Convergence (although there doesn’t seem to be a lot of love for DC at this gathering); the publication of eagerly awaited graphic novels and trade collections (e.g., Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever and Scott McCloud’s The Sculptor); announcements of brand new series; comics that were held over from 2014, such as Pascin and the latest volume of Love and Rockets: New Stories; and the new movies and television shows surrounding comics culture. As always, it’s a fun discussion with these guys. And once again, the Two Guys thank the great folks at Collected for letting them come by every month!
