Comics Podcast Crossover #2 - Nov. 5, 2005

The Lineup:

Mikel O.D. of the Most People Are DJ's podcast.

Chris "CCL" of the Collected Comics Library podcast.

Peter Rios of theComic Geek Speak podcast.

And of course, me, Bruce R of the KomicsKast podcast.

Topics:

The Speakeasy Comics Forum where I found the proper pronunciation of Rocketo. And here's the link to the Rocketo page wherein you can see samples to decide for yourself whether its worth a read.

INFINITE CRISIS lead ins:

1. Identity Crisis

2. Rann/Thanagar War

3. Villians United

4. Superman: Sacrifice

5. Omac Project

6. Day of Vengeance

7. Crisis of Conscience (JLA 115-119)

The consensus was that a reader could "jump on" with Infinite Crisis. These books will however, "flesh" the story out.

The following books were deemed not crucial but will help to "flesh out" recent events:

DC Countdown: Prelude to Infinite Crisis

Flash: Secret of Barry Allen

Flash: Rogue War

Return of Donna Troy

Adam Strange: Planetary Heist

Chris at Collected Comics Library (link above) did a show (episode #31) devoted to Crisis tie-ins. Peter of Comic Geek Speak (link above) has been doing a rundown over a period of weeks and they have also recently had an episode devoted entirely to Infinity Crisis (spoiler alert!)

Guess Who? I scanned this years ago before I bought the slide scanner. Wish I could find the slide again! But it's proof positive that I've been reading comics for a LONG time! This photo was taken around 1958. (We think it's a Wonder Woman comic, but I could be wrong.)

I'd like to apologize for the problems in this episode. I so wanted to use a mic other than the built in one on the Mac and purchased a headphone mic that Mark S had used for his Shanna review. Only problem was that it didn't work with the Mac. So I downloaded Audacity to the PC and recorded it there. The original file is where the glitches take place so it has something to do with the PC and/or Audacity. I went out and bought a USB headphone mic that Lene Taylor (I Read Comics Podcast) recommended and it's working fine! So next episode should sound much better!

Topics:

Comic Geek Speak I want to congratulate the guys at CGS for reaching their 50th episode!

I Read Comics One of my favorite comics related podcasts, and it's by a girl!

Rocketo by Frank Espinosa and Marie Taylor You've got to check this one out! It's not often that CC and I agree!
