CCL Podcast #236 – 2009 Summer Movie and Collected Editions Tie-In Retrospective

Collected Comics Library Podcast #236
26,242Kb; 27m 55s

Today on the show, I take a look back at this year’s comic book related movies and their subsequent collected edition or other periodical tie-ins. This includes a whole host of movies including Watchmen, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Terminator: Salvation, Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Whiteout, The Surrogates and others including animated movies like Coraline, Green Lantern: First Flight and Astro Boy. It’s interesting to see what, and even if, publishing houses capitalized on Hollywood and vice versa. A few books that I forgot to mention were Jennifer’s Body HC, $24.99, from Boom! Studios and two upcoming children’s animated movies Fantastic Mr. Fox and Where The Wild Things Are, but I do not know if new editions of these classic books are being released.

Also on the podcast, I look on eBay for DC Comics’ ElfQuest Archives to see how over priced they are selling, the old Dark Shadows (Gold Key) comic books gets a new hardcover reprint series from Hermes Press and Silver Surfer: Requiem Premiere HC breaks into Diamond’s Top 300 GN’s for August at #10 with 4,147 units sold.

All this and the New Releases of the Week.

  1. Good podcast recapping the summer releases and the CEs of those subjects.

    A couple of other upcoming releases that merit a mention. While it is a direct to DVD movie, DC has the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies movie coming out in a couple of weeks. Talk about a CE tie-in! And while this one is a bit of a stretch CE-wise, the new take on Sherlock Holmes comes out on Christmas day. Although now that I think about it, I know I have seen quite a lot of Sherlock Holmes comics of late, but I don’t know if I have seen any CE of Holmes.
