CCL Podcast #282 – Wanted: Superman Illustrated by Neal Adams

Collected Comics Library Podcast #282
28,639Kb; 28m 39s

The name Neal Adams has been synonymous with comic books for decades. He has spent the majority of his career with DC and in recent years they have celebrated his work with the release of Batman Illustrated Volumes 1-3, Superman Kyrptonite Nevermore, DC Universe Illustrated Volume 1 (projected to be 3 volumes) and the upcoming Superman Vs. Muhammad Ali HC (November).
Adams has worked on just about every character in the DCU including working on several War genre stories. One of those characters has been Superman and today I go over as to what could be a Superman Illustrated by Neal Adams Volume 1.

Also on today’s show is recap of last week’s Women of Marvel Comics blog posts including who was left out (Rogue) and who I should have added in (Red Sonja).

Lastly, what’s old is what’s new again as the Detroit Fanfare is coming October 30-31, 2010. Even Stan Lee is going to make an appearance!

CCL Podcast #262 – Jack Kirby and Joe Simon’s The Sandman HC (DC Comics)


Collected Comics Library Podcast #262
29,868Kb; 31m 45s

We continue our celebration of Jack Kirby here in the month of March, this time with his collaboration with Joe Simon on The Sandman (DC Comics). By the time Jack and Joe took over the character, Wesley Dodds had already made his extensive costume change from the suit, fedora and gas mask to a more super-hero look with yellow and purple tights. Too make things even more a sign of the times he was given a sidekick: Sandy The Golden Boy. There’s no doubt that the magic of Kirby and Simon breathed more life into the characters and helped make them last longer then they would have. But this particular podcast also focuses on the current Editorial Staff at DC Comics and how I think they have ruined any chance for continuing the Golden Age Sandman Archive line. It’s a shame, really because so many great stories look like they will never be collected.

On another front I announce my plans to startup a new podcast! This time it will focus on reprint editions of an additional sort – digital comics. There is one caveat though; this podcast will be exclusive to my Collected Comics Library iTunes App.

I also talk about Dark Horse Archive line (Samson and Buck Rogers) and the MarvelMan collected edition from (where else?) Marvel.

All this and the New Releases of the Week.

Chris
