It’s Wednesday and in addition that meaning it’s new comics day, it also means that it’s time for a new Talking Comics podcast. We’ve all missed you since last time and as such, we take the time to answer some questions from our wonderful listeners and we discuss a big topic: what makes a perfect comic… according to us.
Before we get into that though, we start things off the good ol’ fashioned way, with our Books of the Week.
Steve can’t pick just one comic and talks Lenore #6, The Creep #0 and Jeff Lemire’s Lost Dogs, Bobby loves Spider-Men #4 and Bob talks about Go Girl #3, It Girl and the Atomics #1 and Wonder Woman Adventures 100-Page Spectacular. Last but not least, Stephanie (who has returned!), in obscure webcomics fashion, talks about one of her new favourite digital series’, The Abominable Charles Christopher by Karl Kerschl, which can be found at www.abominable.cc.
Oh, and TC fan, RepStones (on Twitter) asks Stephanie to pronounce an athletes name from the Olympics which just came to a close. Just so you know what kind of name she was up against, check out the reference photo she was sent:
We say it on the show, but just in case you missed it, the Talking Comics crew on Twitter are:
FYI: the gang have brand new avatars on Twitter, Facebook and they’ll be uploaded here to the Talking Comics site shortly. The crew have gone all superhero on the world, thanks to the wonderful Hanie Mohd (a FANTASTIC artist who recently had her art featured in the back of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Captain Marvel #1). Like them? Make sure to follow her and let us know what you think of our new superhero pictures.
The Comic Book Podcast is brought to you by Talking Comics (www.talkingcomicbooks.com), a blog dedicated to covering the latest and greatest in comic book releases.
