Comic Timing – Episode 141

comictimingitunes

Hey, look! It’s a full episode of Comic Timing! This time, Brent and Ian are joined by Gabe Perez, who now wanders around the podcasting world aimlessly after Strangers With Comics stopped coming out. In this episode, you’ll hear a bunch of conversation about the recent tumultuous changes DC Comics has been dealing with, including entire creative teams leaving books before they are even out. Plus, listen to our take on where Comixology might go next; will Comixology’s troubles with downtime lead to a shift in how companies release their digital books? Since this episode was recorded, Marvel reissued their Free 700 Issues offer, but the debate remains valid, as nobody could buy ANY digital books for nearly four full days while their server issues were being resolved.

We also do a little general conversation as usual, including Superior Spider-Man and Avenging Spider-Man, Ian’s Brooklyn Public Library woes, the second to last episode of The Walking Dead Season 3, and a bit on The Walking Dead comics now that Ian is 70 or so issues in. Oh, and Gabe’s pipes are now clean. I left that part in because it’s GOLD!
