Topics include: Agent Carter, Daredevil (Netflix), Charlie Hebdo, Jack Kirby’s Kamandi Artist’s Edition, Marvel’s April 2015 Solicits, Dripping With Fear: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 5, and Legends of The Dark Knight: Norm Breyfogle HC.

And….
Well it’s that time of year again, time to Adopt a Character, creator, genre or just about anything else in the world of comic books and get acquainted with it all year long. It’s more of a challenge than anything else, and it’s been a fun way to read something out of the norm or try something new.
Here’s the rundown of what I have picked in past years:

2007: Thor
2008: Luke Cage and Iron Fist
2009: The Spirit Archives Volumes 1-27
2010: Steve Ditko’s Spider-Man
2011: Silver Age X-Men
2012: Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
2013: Fantastic Four by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
2014: Namor, The Sub-Mariner

This year I’m going with the Bronze Age Batman. I’m doing this by diving into my library with books like the Batman by Neal Adams, Tales of the Batman by Len Wein and Legends of the Dark Knight by Jim Aparo. Andy Tom also joins me tonight and he is going with Captain America – Golden, Silver, Bronze and Modern Age. That should keep him busy!

This is it! My Big Year in Review Show fpr 2014. This is where I do a month by month look – and critique – of many news and noteworthy books that caught my eye from all the major companies this past year.

Warning: I say it every year; this particular podcast should be taken in moderation because this is not your typical CCL Podcast. What this basically is, is one big list, so I suggest you listen while shoveling snow, mowing your lawn, going on a long commute, etc. It’s perfectly alright to keep this as a reference tool.

I have also supplied a much more expanded collected editions release list for 2014 and a time stamp of all the different months.

Intro and January – 0:00
February – 11:36
March – 16:56
April – 27:37
May – 36:21
June – 42:44
July – 50:27
August – 1:00:55
September – 1:09:59
October – 1:16:29
November – 1:23:45
December and Outro – 1:29:35

And if I missed a book or two, please forgive me. I had to go through over 3,000 trades, hardcovers, graphic novels.
Cheers!
Chris
