Collected Comics Library Podcast #368
38.7Mb; 40m 17s

It’s been a few weeks since I last had a solo podcast, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I can tell you that I’ve read a few books, namely:

Nightwing: Old Friends, New Enemies (DC Comics) which collects the Nightwing/Speedy team-ups from Action Comics Weekly. It takes place shortly after Dick has left Batman as a partner but is still a member of the Titans. The first of the two tales was much more violent than I thought it would be including sex and drugs.

March by Rep. John Lewis (Top Shelf) the fist in the trilogy of life in the southern US in the 60’s. The details are sometimes hard to read and the language is not for the faint of heart, but t is a true story and one that should never be forgotten. I commend Chris Starros for taking on this project.

A few others that I have on my to read list include:

  • The First Kingdom by Jack Katz (Titan)
  • The Superman Dailies – Silver Age (IDW)
  • Star Trek Newspaper Strips Volume 1 (IDW)
  • Peanuts Sundays 1952-55 (Fantagraphics)
  • Heroic Tales: The Bill Everett Archives Volume 2 and Impossible Tales: The Steve Ditko Archives Volume 4 Blake Bell (Fantagraphics)

I also go over details of X-Men Days Of Future Past HC (Marvel) which is due in 2014, including the fact that Days Of Future Present will be collected, as well. Yeah!!!

Lastly I go over the 2013 Harvey Award winners – the big winner his year was Saga

Collected Edition Blog browsing on Tuesday afternoon

I took a short vacation this past weekend. While I was away I was able to get a lot of reading done and if you caught my Twitter feed then you know what I’ll be talking about for this week’s podcast. Now on to some linky-links:

CCL Podcast #253 – Kim Thompson, Vice President of Fantagraphics

So sorry to hear that Kim Thompson has passed. It was an honor to have him on the Collected Comics Library.
-Chris; June 19, 2013

Collected Comics Library Podcast #253
51,445Kb; 54m 48s

I’m excited to move out of 2009 and in to 2010 and what a better way to kick it off then an interview with a true journeyman, Kim Thompson the Vice President and Publisher of Fantagraphics Books. Kim has been in the industry for over 30 years specializing in alternative and independent comics. Kim has also championed the cause of European translations, which we discuss in-depth today. We also talk about Fantagraphics commitment to classic comic strip reprints like Peanuts, Price Valiant, Dennis The Menace and Pogo. For even more on Kim Thompson, be sure to visit his Blog page.

Also on the show I congratutalte Greg S. from Ogden, Utah on winning the 6th Annual NCAA Football Bowl Contest. Greg has chosen Showcase Presents: Warlord Volume 1 as his prize.

All this including thoughts on Human Taget comic books and trade paperbacks and the New Releases of the Week.
