CCL Podcast #90 – …with Bruce, Derek and Peter!

Collected Comics Library Podcast #90
45,211Kb; 38m 34s

I put out the call late Tuesday morning that I would be recording a “live” Skype-in show later that afternoon. I have to say that my first attempt was a success!
My thanks go out to Bruce from KomicsKast, Derek from Comic Book Noise, and Peter from Comic Geek Speak. Right off the bat, we talk about the whole
Blankets issue that’s been all over the comics-blogosphere. Absolute Sandman is another topic, as well as Bruce and Derek’s favorite build-a-bookshelf-yourself-superstore: IKEA. Personally, I’d only shop there if the bikini team showed up.
Also, Aziz from Henderson, NV, is the winner of my copy of my Kingdom Come trade. Congratulations!
So if your of age, crack open an Old Milwaukee friends, it’s time for another CCL!

CCL Podcast #89 – Essential Dracula edits and a Kingdom Come TPB giveaway

I’m sure everyone will be very interested in what I have to say regarding the Essential Tomb of Dracula edits. Well, perhaps not. As I say in the podcast, I don’t have much to add that’s not already been said.
Thanks to everyone who responded to my question of which version of the Universal Monsters DVD’s I should buy. Looks like the Legacy Collections are the ones to start off with first and save the 75th Anniversary ones for a major sale at Best Buy.
Be sure to check out the Forbidden Planet International Blog. Joe has posted some great articles that I go over in the show.
I’m also giving away my own personal and used copy of Kingdom Come. Please listen for details on how to enter and win.
Goodnight now!

Marvel speaks!

Marvel’s VP of sales, David Gabriel is interviewed today at Newsarama, by Matt Brady. Many questions are just the basics, Marvel isn’t giving up too much. However, we can expect more Iron Man Masterworks and Essentials in the future. On the other side of the Civil War, Captain America won’t be getting and Premiere Hardcovers anytime soon.

My apologies right off the bat for the show being a few days late this week. As some of you know, I’ve been a bit under the weather and I also had obligation, which you will hear about, that kept me form recording the past few nights.
In any event it’s done and as Leo would say, “it’s in the can.”
On this week’s show I go over Image and Marvel collected editions for December as well as a full rundown of the upcoming Marvel Essentials. All of these books can be found on the Release Schedule page. Also on the page you will find that all four Checklists have been fully updated. Please feel free download a new copy for your enjoyment. As always please send me any errata.
I do have a new Question of the Week, please use the forum or email for your answers.
For the Feature this week I have finally gotten down to producing my Warm and Fuzzy show with much of your participation. Thank you to everyone who posted or e-mailed me. As for my book it is the JLA/Avengers Slipcase Edition, but I’m sure you’ll be very surprised just what is contained in the book that had me praising both DC and Marvel!
Enjoy, cough, cough,

CCL Podcast #87 – Upcoming Books, August Market Report, and a little more Meltzer

Collected Comics Library Podcast #87
33,028Kb; 28m 10s

First off my apology to David Stepp, who is hosting the 2007 DC Archive Survey, the audio gave out as I was promoting his survey. It also gave out during my announcements of the December Marvel Solicitations. I I did not catch either glitch until I was done editing this show. I’ll be sure to go over them in the next podcast.
In this week’s installment, I cover two great announcements; the first is Dick Tracy, which you can read the entire Press Release below and the second is Fathom: The Definitive Edition Trade Paperback.
Also, since every podcast on the planet seems to be announcing what they will be watching on TV this year, I decided to join up.
I mentioned on last weeks show that I was going to meet Brad Meltzer at a book signing. I did, and I have some great news for the Collected Comics Library! One thing that Brad mentioned is that he is all done writing the first six issues of Justice League of America and now he enjoying his time on the road with his book tour.
Be sure to post your Warm and Fuzzy feelings about your Collected Editions and any Novels that you recommend by Comic Book Writers, I’ll be mentioning both topics in next week’s podcast.
