Collected Edition Blog browsing on Tuesday morning

Last week The Comic Book Podcast Companion by Eric Houston dropped from TwoMorrows Publishing. Word has it that it’s selling very well! For those of you who are regulars to this podcast and blog and picked one up, I thank you very much. It really means a lot, not only to me, but to all who was involved in the book. If you don’t own one yet, please go out and pick up a copy. It shows that you support our endeavors. Podcasting, itself, is fairly easy. All you need is a microphone, a computer and a head on your shoulders. But to make it work and be successful is something entirely different. It takes patience, sales and marketing skills, a bit of programming and time. The men and women who were chosen for this book work very hard to bring you meaningful, interesting and enjoyable content with each show. The Comic Book Podcast Companion is a great way to learn more about the people involved.
