We’re back, for our first podcast following SDCC. Unusually, there’s actually quite a lot of comics news to talk about, including comics and movie news for Marvel, DC, IDW and more. Join us under the cut for the full skinny!
It’s been a busy couple of weeks. So I thought I’d take it easy on myself, find a cool comic book questionnaire online & fill that out. Hopefully my answers will be entertaining and/or illuminating.
Last week, I talked about STAR TREK: NEW VISIONS, the photomontage comics series of Star Trek adventures that John Byrne is doing for IDW.
But before John Byrne got a regular gig telling STAR TREK stories, he was just like the rest of us – A STAR TREK fan who’d occasionally make reference to it in his everyday life. It just so happened that Byrne’s everyday life was as a popular writer/artist of comic books. So I thought it’d be fun to see how many ST references I could pick out of Byrne’s classic comic book work.
A good logo can help define a book’s personality, and a GREAT logo can really set a comic book apart on the shelves, bringing in new readers. John runs down a few of his favorite classic comic logos from over the years.
Travis talks about his first time at a comic shop, and also includes an update about the other comics featured in that DC TV ad from last time, thanks to you the reader!
Travis talks about when Marvel and DC advertised their comics on TV by giving local comic shops a piece of video to work from and add their own info!
