Collected Comics Library Podcast #368
38.7Mb; 40m 17s
It’s been a few weeks since I last had a solo podcast, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I can tell you that I’ve read a few books, namely:
Nightwing: Old Friends, New Enemies (DC Comics) which collects the Nightwing/Speedy team-ups from Action Comics Weekly. It takes place shortly after Dick has left Batman as a partner but is still a member of the Titans. The first of the two tales was much more violent than I thought it would be including sex and drugs.
March by Rep. John Lewis (Top Shelf) the fist in the trilogy of life in the southern US in the 60’s. The details are sometimes hard to read and the language is not for the faint of heart, but t is a true story and one that should never be forgotten. I commend Chris Starros for taking on this project.
A few others that I have on my to read list include:
- The First Kingdom by Jack Katz (Titan)
- The Superman Dailies – Silver Age (IDW)
- Star Trek Newspaper Strips Volume 1 (IDW)
- Peanuts Sundays 1952-55 (Fantagraphics)
- Heroic Tales: The Bill Everett Archives Volume 2 and Impossible Tales: The Steve Ditko Archives Volume 4 Blake Bell (Fantagraphics)
I also go over details of X-Men Days Of Future Past HC (Marvel) which is due in 2014, including the fact that Days Of Future Present will be collected, as well. Yeah!!!
Lastly I go over the 2013 Harvey Award winners – the big winner his year was Saga
