We only have ONE show left until the biggest 100th show, which will be happening this Friday September 20th in front of a Talking Comics LIVE audience. We couldn’t be more excited for that and we couldn’t be more excited to be bringing in our final double digit numbered show with you here. We answer as many listener questions as we possibly can and of course talk about this, that and various shenanigans.

We banter for a bit but as per usual but we also discuss our favourite Books of the Week, which include: Aquaman, Lobo, Locke & Key: Alpha, The Hunt, Mighty Avengers, Fantastic Four, Fearless Defenders, Red Sonja, Fairest, Harley Quinn, Blacksad, Batman: Black & White, Riddler, Reverse Flash and more.

    Why did you have to go and mention Stephanie Brown? My heart hasn’t healed properly since her exclusion from the New 52. God I miss her. And in case you’ve only read the Batgirl Reborn stuff, go back and read Chuck Dixon’s Robin run. It isn’t collected at all but the single issues are everywhere and cheap. The Spoiler/Robin stories are amazing. You won’t regret it.

    i was thinking about the conversation you all had about Captain Marvel and the publisher’s duty to the fan base, and it got me thinking. I believe the difference between and book like Captain Marvel and just about everything else on the shelves is the concept of “1000 true fans.” With as fickle as the comics buying public can be, acquiring and keeping readers seems to be a constant struggle, which is why that 25,000 copy number keeps popping up. However, i think that in the case of Captain Marvel, those 9 or 10,000 copies represent a much more loyal and therefore much more important fan base. These are the people who will follow the character no matter what, buy all of the merchandise, dress in the cosplay, and most importantly, talk about it everywhere they have a voice. i think it’s less of an obligation for Marvel than a really smart business move to retain these readers by keeping the book going because they are something that the industry desperately needs: loyal fans who aren’t going to jump off at the first sign of a costume change or a different hairstyle.

    just my two cents. keep up the good work.
