CCL Podcast #305 – Lois Lane, Comic Journalism and The Eisner’s

Collected Comics Library Podcast #305
28,899Kb; 31m 47s

Today on the podcast, I celebrate the fact that the DC Archives are not dead, as we have evidence of Lois Lane Volume 1, which is due out in December. I go over a bit of the publishing history of Lois and her Silver Age comics that are reprinted in the Showcase Presents: Superman Family series of books.

Also on the show I talk a little bit about the Eisner’s and one category in particular: Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism. I try to answer the question: just what is Comic Book Journalism? I can be misunderstood, especially in this day and age of instant information and headline reporting.

Lastly, IDW officially solicited the log awaited Star Trek Movie Omnibus. Originally slated for November 2009, it was held back so it could contain the recently complete adaptation of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It will collect all six Original Series movies as published by three different houses. Should be a good one!
