CCL Podcast #80 – Time for Timely

Collected Comics Library Podcast #80
20,446Kb; 17m 26s

Hey gang; it’s a scorcher here in The Motor City! The heat index on Tuesday reached 111 degrees. I’ve been at my parents’ house the past few nights because, for no other reason, I don’t have air-conditioning. But I do have lots and lots of comics. I guess that’s a good trade off.
On this week’s show I get back to asking a Question of the Week, A Superman Returns trade paperback giveaway and I give a history lesson on Timely Comics or what you may know it better by as The Golden Age of Marvel Comics.
So sit back in your easy-chair, take a walk on that treadmill or just drive in your car and step back in time when comics were made of “gold”.

I really had a lot of fun, but I’m glad it only comes around once a year. Any more than that I’m not sure I could take it.
Today’s show has no real format. I go over what I did, who I saw and things that I experienced at the Con and I go over the Comics Podcasting Panel. I also run down the New Releases of the Week and I have a neat little audio clip that I think you’ll enjoy.

CCL Podcast #78 – Short, Sweet and Solicitations

Collected Comics Library Podcast #78
21,982Kb; 18m 45s

Although it’s my shortest show in a long while, it’s jam packed with information. Including the newly announced EC Archives, an awesome special contest from Atomic Comics, friend of the show David Price, from the Comic Timing podcast, writes in a Wolverine question that I need your help on and finally the solicitations from Marvel (October) and DC (November).
As I said on the podcast, while in San Diego I hope to get a few things done. First is that I hope to post information on the blog as it comes available. Second is to garner a few interviews and third is to do a show from the either the Hotel or the Convention floor. I don’t want to miss a beat with the podcast.

EC Comics and Marvel Omnibus site updates

Hey gang, I finally got around to adding a page for Jack Kirby’s Eternals Omnibus and with that I’ve added the highly anticipated Grant Morrison’s New X-Men Omnibus which will collect New X-Men #114-154 and Annual 2001. This book will be 992 pages (the biggest book Marvel has ever published) and will be released in December. Please note, this is just the basic information that has been given out, so there’s not much there.
I’ve also added a new section for the newly announced EC Archives. Again, not much info, but I do have cover art for two of the books.
Just browse down the left-hand side for those and more books.

I hope to get more information on all these books at the San Diego Comic Con next week.


Tom Brevoort on Fanboy Radio

Hey everyone, my friend and fellow SDCC panelist, Scott Hinze of Fanboy Radio wanted me to let you know that he’ll be interviewing Executive Editor of Marvel Comics, Tom Brevoort this Sunday, July 13 at 6pm Central (7pm Eastern, 4pm Pacific). I’m sure Tom will be discussing what Marvel is up to at this years San Diego Comic-Con. I even passed Scott a few Marvel Masterworks and collected editions questions; let’s hope they get answered.
