12,192Kb; 26m 00s

It’s that spooky time of year, especially if you live in Detroit! Come on in and grab a scary book!
Tonight, I go over a few of my favorites and a few that I have yet to get, but come highly recommended. I also go over the Universal Monster DVD’s one last time including the Abbott and Costello Monster movies.
There are a few sold out Masterworks to report and two e-mails to go over as well.
So turn down the lights and curl up with a good podcast!

As I said on the Forum, three of the interviews you have heard before.

It was originally recorded for CCL #43 and uploaded on November 17, 2005.

Trade Secrets 2

Trade Secrets 3
This is a talk with regular Comic Geek Speak contributor John Mayo. John and I go over the Trade stats for August 2006.

How’bout them Tigers! As I say on the podcast the whole city is going nuts. Let’s hope they can win the Series!
As you know by now Absolute Long Halloween is on the way, and I talk a bit more about that.
My second podcast, the Trade Secrets Podcast will be debuting this Sunday with episode #4, find out what’s up with that.
This week DC and Marvel released their schedules for January and February and a little bit in March. Some get books from both companies caught my eye, but I’m a bit perplexed as to the Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Heroes Volume 1 which collects among other characters, Stan Lee’s, 1950’s revival, of Captain America. I found this to be a really odd choice when Marvel has so much more to offer. To tell you the truth, my expectations are low with this book, but I hope to be proved wrong.
To help add another thread to the new Forum, The Question of the Week is back with a vengeance.
Aziz left me a voice mail regarding a Planet Hulk collected edition and Jasper helps us out with the whole Universal’s Classic Monster Legacy Collection and the 75th Anniversary Editions debate. I believe the jury has spoken. Case closed.
