2006 San Diego Comic Con

Well, the cat’s out of the bag. It was announced on the
Comic Geek Speak podcast #137 that I will be attending the 2006 San Diego Comic Con.
I’ve been invited by some of the Cons organizers to be on the newly formed Comics Podcasting panel. I was so surprised when asked and I am truly humbled. Some of the CGS guys will be on it, as well as many others. I hope to get a full confirmed list in the next week or two. I’m not sure what day or when, but I can tell your it will be about an hour and a half long and will be hosted by Mark Evanier.
This will be my first trip to the Con and I hope to meet many new friends in the process. Hope to see you there, too.

This past weekend I was planning on doing a follow up to the Crisis on Multiple Earths trade paperbacks that I talked about on last weeks podcast. Then on Monday and Tuesday the new solicitations for DC and Marvel came out and I to scrap my plans and start from scratch. It’s all well and good, because there are some amazing books that will be coming out in the next few months.

I want to congratulate Lynn Walker from Utah for winning Crisis on Multiple Earths Volume 3!

I’ll be at the Motor City Comic Con this Friday and Saturday, drop me an e-mail if you are going to be there and perhaps we can meet up.

Thanks again to the guys over at
Around Comics, I sat in on a roundtable discussion for their Podcast #18 Comics 101 Suggestions for New Readers.

I also have an audio comment from Scott from the
View From The Cheap Seats blog.

So buckle down your wallet and take a listen to the show.

I hope everyone is a having a great week. The vision in my right eye is progressing very well and the swelling has gone down somewhat. I still have to wear my patch at night, but I´m getting used to it. I only have to wear it for five more months.
This week I go over the four best Team-Up collected editions series on the market, The Essential Marvel Team-Up Volumes 1-2, The Brave and The Bold Team-Up Archives Volume 1, Crisis on Multiple Earths: The Team-Ups Volume 1 and The Greatest Team-Up Stories Ever Told.
I also want to congratulate the winner of the Doc Ock toy, Rick from Watervliet, New York. This week I´m giving away a copy of Crisis on Multiple Earths Volume 3 TPB. Listen to the show to find out how to enter.
Lastly, The DC Archives Checklist is fully updated up with all of the “pinstipped” Archives and you’ll want to listen to see how you can help out with updating the Marvel Essentials Checklist.
