CCL Podcast #303 – Six Year Anniversary – I’ve Fell-en and I Can’t Get Up

Collected Comics Library Podcast #303
15,040Kb; 15m 56s

Wouldn’t you know that I go record my six year anniversary podcast and it turns out that I get a bad sore throat. Not to worry, it’s a quick show today as I go over some collected edition news from IDW, DC, Marvel, Fantagraphics, Flesk, Boom, and Dark Horse (and even more) that has caught my eye and is worth commenting on.

I want to thank everyone who has come by this blog and downloaded a podcast from the past six years. It truly means a lot to me and your support keeps me going from week to week.

If you are gong to C2E2, please let me know, I’d be happy to meet with you.

CCL Podcast #259 – Steve Ditko Part 4 – Interview with Craig Yoe, Art of Ditko


Collected Comics Library Podcast #259
44,305Kb; 47m 09s

This is my Fifth Anniverasry of the Collected Comics Library Podcast! Thanks to everyone who as supported me over the years!

In the fourth installment of the Steve Ditko career retrospective, I chat with comic book historian, Craig Yoe about his new collected edition, Art of Ditko (Yoe Books and IDW). Craig has had the good fortune of working with Ditko and talks about his experiences and why he is such an icon of the comic book industry.

Craig also talks about another book of his, Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman’s Co-creator Joe Shuster (Abrams). Going beyond the drawings included here, Secret Identity is an important look at not only one of the fore-fathers of the modern superhero but the beginnings of underground comix.

All this including the contest winners of the Steve Ditko Book Giveaway and the free CCL iTunes App and news on the upcoming 40: A Doonesbury Retrospective from (Andrews McMeel).

Collected Comics Library 10th Anniversary

This October marks the 10th Anniversary of the Collected Comics Library. What started out as a small project for a Web design class I took at the University of Michigan has turned into one of the most read and well respected Comic Book Blogs and Podcasts. True, I’ve put a lot of hard work, time and money into growing the CCL, but all of the credit goes to you. Over the years it’s been you who has given me the encouragement to keep going from week to week, month to month and year to year.

With the CCL, I’ve created friendships that will continue for the rest of my life. I’ve read countless books and have amassed a very nice collection of Hardcovers, softcovers, classics and new. I’ve come across professionals in the field that I can call at anytime from my speed dial. I’ve been able to travel to San Diego and Chicago to speak in front of hundreds of people. I’ve been fortunate to freelance with TwoMorrows Publishing and Dynamite Entertainment. I’m glad to be a part of several different Collected Edition communities that allow my insight and opinion. I’m happy that the CCL is an ever evolving useful tool when it comes to Collected Editions. But most of all I’m just glad that comic books, of all types, are alive and well. I am proud to call myself a comic book fan, and I’m proud to continue with you on my journey.

Cheers!

CCL Podcast #209 – Four Year Anniversary and Sandman King Of Dreams

Collected Comics Library Podcast #209

Four years. Every week for four years, I’ve been producing this podcast. I say it annually that I never thought I would last this long, but here I am and here it is. And I really owe it all to you the reader of this blog and listener of the podcast. I can’t thank you enough.

As usual, for special shows, I focus on big books, events or characters and today is no different. Many of you have been collecting The Absolute Sandman volumes and just as many of you will probably be buying The Absolute Death when it is published in October. I’d like to recommend another book to add to your collection and that is Sandman: Kind Of Dreams by Alisa Kwitney. Published in 2003, it’s an in-depth retrospective of the series including artwork, op-ed pieces and even an Introduction by Neil Gaiman, himself.

Also on the show, I go over a new section to the CCL site: Marvel Premiere Classic, you can find it on the Library Page. All this and the New Releases of the Week.

CCL Podcast #110 – Two Year Anniversary and The JSA


Collected Comics Library Podcast #110
25,606Kb; 27m 18s

It’s the CCL Two Year Anniversary Show! First up, I want to thank everyone for supporting my podcast for the past two years; I could never have done it without your support. I also want to thank my sponsors In Stock Trades and Forbidden Planet International – the best online companies on both sides to the Atlantic.
This week we have a lot of news to cover including MAD, Jack Kirby, Mutt and Jeff, Tellos, Revere, Mouse Guard, The Planet Hulk Omnibus, and even more from last week’s New York Comic Con.
As per usual, I go over the New Releases of the Week and there is even a new Question of the Month. This month I’m asking what you would like to ask the editors at the various comic book companies. I plan on compiling them all at the end of March and sending them in. As much as I’d like to get a response, I’m really looking to let the editor know that there is more to comics then just the Monthly titles. There is a whole slue of us that are hardcore collectors of the Trade Paperbacks and Hardcovers.
For the feature this week I go over my favorite superhero team of all time The Justice Society of America. However, this is not about their run that is collected in the All-Star Archives. This biography of the team starts with their Silver Age appearances with the Justice League of America all the way up to the brand new run by Geoff Johns. There are many trades to go over and more importantly some issues that have yet to be collected. Want to to know what they are? Click on the link and give a listen.
