CCL Podcast #336 – Comics: Stripped Bare

Collected Comics Library Podcast #336
31.4Mb; 34m 15s

In last week’s podcast #335, I mentioned my love for classic comics strips: Flash Gordon, Tarzan, Buck Rogers, Mandrake…the list goes on. This week I take that concept a bit further and look at the September 5, 2012 Detroit Free Press Sunday Comics. Don’t worry, I don’t read all four pages verbatim, but I do explore each one and give my thoughts – some of which I have never heard of.

I also go a little more in depth from yesterday’s post on the EC Comics Archives from GC Press and the upcoming EC Comics Library from Fantagraphics. Where did GC, and Gemstone for that matter, go wrong? Can Fantagraphics succeed with the new format? Is Kickstarter an option for older comics like these? Loaded questions for sure and I freely admit I don’t have all the answers – but I’m damn close.

All this and a quick rundown of the week’s best new comic book collected edition releases!
