Host Derek Coward talks about the closing down of The Collected Comics Library podcast.
Host Derek Coward talks about an unexpected heat wave, ten years of Collected Comics Library, Athena Voltaire, Teen Titans Earth One, and says goodbye to another title on his pull list.
I don’t know how I overlooked this, but Augie DeBlieck has stopped doing The Pipeline Podcast.
If I recall correctly that makes Collected Comics Library the oldest active comic book podcast.
1) The Pipeline Podcast – done
2) Digital Strips – done
3) Comic Geeks – done
4) Collected Comics Library
5) Comic Geek Speak
6) Los Comic Geekos
7) Meanwhile…, The Comics Podcast – done
8) Comic News Insider
9) Geek 4×4 – done
Of course there is also Comicology Podcast by Neil Gorman, but I’m not exactly sure where he falls in the first ten. However, his show is also done.
This order comes from the podcasting column I wrote for the second issue of Comics Now (also done). I don’t have my notes anymore, but I’m pretty sure I am at #16 overall.
Host Derek Coward clearly defines what he is and how that sets him apart from other comics readers and other people with comic book shows. If you listen really closely, there is also a review of the Family Matter graphic by Will Eisner.

Host Derek Coward finishes his look at the best of 2008 by talking about the titles that he has heard good things about but has never checked out yet, best miniseries that didn’t finish in 2008, best #1 comics of 2008 and the best graphic novels.

There might be shows this week, but I’m not sure what they will be. I am positive that there will not be a new Indie Comic Book Noise, Marvel Noise, Geek Brunch, DC Noise, Comics Playground, Rocky Mountain Comic Book Noise, Welcome to Heavenside, Mage: The Hero Discussed, PPRD or The Fury of Iron Fist.
I’m not sure about Comic Book Noise, Burning Trash, The Shade’s Journal, The Number One Comic Book Show or Comic Book Noise Talks, but I am leaning towards probably not.
I was going to do a mad rush of podcasts like I seem to do every end of the year, but since I have already reached Episode 150, I have nothing to shoot for. I think it would be impossible for even me to do 48 episodes in three days.
So use this time to catch up on older shows, check out our cousins The Trip, Eye Of The Storm or Teenage Wasteland or check out Friends of the Family like Collected Comics Library, Komicskast, Comic Book Attic, Comic Book Savant, 11 O Clock Comics, Comic Geek Speak, Raging Bullets, Geek Syndicate, Comics Addiction, THOOM, Comic Book Road Show, DaFixer’s Hideout, Podcast X, Comic Timing or The Pop Cult Online. I’m pretty sure that they make podcasts that don’t deal with comic books but I’m not sure.
Most of all, sit back and relax. We’ll be back to a regular schedule pretty soon.
UPDATE: The Shade’s Journal will definitely be posted on Monday.
UPDATE 2: According to host Eric Martin, DC Noise will definitely be posted on Friday.
A few months ago, I borrowed The Legion of Super-Heroes Archives Volumes 2 through 8 from my good friend Chris Marshall from The Collected Comics Library. My plan was to read them all and to somehow fit a LSH podcast into my schedule. However, before I could pull the trigger on my plan, two of my favorite podcasters teamed up with two of their friends to create the Legion of Substitute Podcasters podcast.
I still plan on finishing the Archives because I eventually have to get them back to Chris (or at the pace I’m going, his estate), but in the meantime I will fit the LSP into my podcast listening rotation and save myself a bunch of time.
