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.

CCL Podcast #69 – DC and Marvel for Autumn 2006

Collected Comics Library Podcast #69
29,562Kb; 25m 13s

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.
