January 30, 2011 under Podcasts

It’s that time once again… time to see what comics managed to stay on Just Bill’s Favorite Comics Rack throughout 2010!  Which publisher leads the pack?  What previous Rack-worthy series have returned?  What new titles have graced the rack in 2010?  Listen in to find out the answers to these questions and more!

[Note: Some issues of Detective Comics featuring Batwoman also made the rack this year, but due to the fact that this episode was done TWICE, it was accidentally skipped and omitted during the actual recording.]

Episode 98: Does Format Effect the Reading Experience?

The main topic of the episode is whether or not the format in which you read a comic effects your enjoyment of the material.  Do you prefer singles, trades, Absolutes, or digital comics?  How did the creators believe the work would be consumed?  More questions than answers in this one.  Listen and then give your two cents on the talkback thread at thecomicforums.com.

Episode 74: Comics OCD and What Comics Are Worth

July 5, 2008 under Podcasts

I’m back in the saddle again after a lengthy hiatus from podcasting.  Tune in for a lot of rambling as to why, but also some talk about the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon, the Justice League New Frontier DVD, the Incredible Hulk Movie, and a lot of other random stuff.  Somewhere in all of that I talk about some of the symptoms of my Comics OCD habits and how I’m trying to break them, and then mull over who decides why back issues cost what they do.

And in a segment now deemed “Not So Recent Reads” recorded about a month ago, I chime in on the following comics:

  • Daredevil: Blood of the Tarantula
  • Detective Comics #843
  • You’ve Got To Have a Gimmick Today
  • DMZ Vol. 4: Friendly Fire
  • Final Crisis #1

Plus another comparative look at Heroes Corner Mail Order versus Discount Comic Book Service.
