Collected Comics Library Podcast #173

57,760Kb; 61m 20s

This week marks a special week in the world of comic books and podcasting, along with several other shows, the CCL is covering Diamond Distribution and the Direct Market. All of the participating podcasts are focusing on this one very important and often understood (or misrepresented) company and system. For my part, I went on location to Detroit Comics and sat down with owner Brian Kelly to talk about what it takes to open a new comic book store including the good and bad and his relationship with Diamond. I want to thank Brian for being so candid in his assessment. I found it to be insightful, straight forward and honest. To find a listing of all the other shows and their exact take, please visit our unofficial host, Comics Related.

Also in this week’s installment, I give a quick rundown of some books scheduled to be coming out in August and throughout the 4th Quarter and even some DC Comics Collected Editions for 2009 which includes a Deluxe Hardcover of Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing.

Lastly, I want to congratulate Jeffery Grill of Miami, FL who won the Annihilation Conquest Book 1 giveaway contest. My oversight is his advantage. All this and the New Releases of the Week.
