Comics Alternative Special: A Roundtable Discussion for International Podcast Day 2016

Listen to the podcast!

Sound Discussion

In celebration of International Podcast Day 2016, Derek participates in a roundtable discussion with fellow comics podcasters, including John Siuntres of Word Balloon, Chris Marshall of Collected Comics Library, and John Mayo of Comic Books Page. The four of them talk extensively about their experiences in podcasting, the challenges of working with publishers and creators within the industry, their particular niche interests in comics podcasting, how their shows have evolved over the years, and their “wish lists” for growing as a podcast. Not only do the guys discuss the many facets of podcasting specifically about comics, they also share insights about podcasting as a social media platform.

Chris Marshall of Collected Comics Library and the TwoMorrow’s Tune-In Podcast joins Brent and Ian, along with Shawn Pryor of PKD Media as we discuss the current state of Trade Paperbacks. Is the industry leaning more towards this medium than it did back in 2006 when David Price, Braxton and Ian discussed the issue on Episode 6? Is Ian thinking about going all-trades? Find out this episode! And we discuss Shawn’s disgust towards real estate schemes.

CCL #170 – Free Comics 2008! Now What?

Collected Comics Library Podcast #170

35,850Kb; 37m 58s

Long time listeners of the Podcast will remember that last year I did a show devoted to Free Comic Book Day. In that particular episode, I went over all the books that were given out and then I gave recommendations as to what collected editions would go well with that title. Due to the concept of the show, it was a hit and remains one of my most downloaded shows ever! Now it’s 2008 and I’m back for Round 2. This episode was fun to record (I don’t say that enough) and I hope you’ll enjoy it too, and save it for future reference.

Also, I go over what I read, and watched, over the weekend, some shipping updates, and The New Releases of the Week.

Please visit my site sponsors: In-Stock Trades, Forbidden Planet International (UK), and Library Binding Company.
