This week’s schedule will be filled with holes

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.

Blogging Over The Holiday Break

Since the kids are out of school for the Christmas break, I will not be able to record as much as I would like. When it comes to the many music shows that I do, this is no problem because I can just record the voice parts and assemble everything later in Audacity. However when it comes to the talky shows like the comic book and movie shows, then I can’t keep the kids quiet long enough for me to be able to record a complete train of thought (and according to some, I need all the help I can get in that regard).

Therefore, I will probably be doing a lot more blogging until the kids go back to school. I’m not sure how long the individual posts will be or what frequency, but right now, the plan is to post something at least once a day. I also plan on having posts that are at least 200 words each time out, but there might also be some that are short and just contain links to other blogs or news stories.

Right now, that is the plan. Of course, if any of this changes and I am able to record a show (no matter how short or scattershot it is), I will do so.

The Problem with having multiple podcasts

One of the drawbacks to having multiple podcasts is the higher possibility for error when posting them to the server or the RSS feed. Yesterday’s upload of Indie Comic Book Noise was incomplete and I didn’t catch it until today. So you will have to redownload yesterday’s show to get the missing 18 minutes.

Today, I uploaded the Halloween episode of Movie Noise to the server. I also mistakenly added it to the Comic Book Noise family feed. This isn’t a bonus episode like the time I put the Serenity review in the feed. It was just the product of doing too much at the same time. Listen to it anyway, it is me and Brian from Kryptographik talking in depth about Wolf Creek. I think it ranks as one of the best episodes I have done.

What I would buy – 8/13/2008

If I had money to buy comic books on August 13, 2008, this is what I would buy:

Arcana Studios:
Helen Killer 4 (of 4):  I have really enjoyed the first three issues of this miniseries and I think the last one will be just as special.

DC Comics:
Checkmate 29:  This title is being canceled, which should have happened once Greg Rucka left the book.  I decided to give Bruce Jones a chance because I liked his run on Hulk.  His Hulk was a superhero spy story in what was a superhero monster book.  His Checkmate is a superhero monster story in what should be a superhero spy book.  One day I hope he gets the formula right.  I’m getting this because I want to see how this storyarc ends.

Desperado Publishing:
Necessary Evil 7:  I like this book.  I think the premise is pretty good, but I am starting to get sick of the whole ‘good guy superheroes are really dickheads in costume’ vibe coming from a lot of books/movies/tv shows/extremely popular web events from big name creators.  It gets tiresome after a while, no matter how good the project is.  Pretty soon, a bad or even extremely mediocre project going to come out and make this entire subgenre look shabby.  Note to creators:  It is possible to make a sympathetic villain without resorting to making a douchebag hero.

Image:
Golly 1:  On Indie Comic Book Noise, I couldn’t remember what Golly is.  It turns out that it is the new project from Phil Hester and Ande Parks.  I would pick it up because those two usually do pretty good work, but I am little concerned about the lack of buzz behind the book.

Transhuman 3 (of 4):  On Awesomed by Comics, Evie mentioned the sameness in all of Jonathan Hickman’s projects.  I agree that there are definite similarities from one project to the next in terms of presentation and theme, but so far it works.  Check out the ABC podcast, good stuff.

Marvel:
Secret Invasion: Inhumans 1 (of 4):  I have already read the preview of this book and yet I would still buy it.  Does this mean that it is a great start to a potentially great miniseries, a sign of me being an Inhumans mark or evidence that despite the quality of digital comics there is still something a lot more satisfying with owning the hardware of a comic book?  The answer I was looking for was a little of all three.  Thanks for playing.

Secret Invasion: X-Men 1 (of 4):  See the comments for Secret Invasion Inhumans, but replace “an Inhumans mark” with “interested in what the mutants are doing during this time”.

Red 5 Comics:
Atomic Robo Dogs of War 1 (of 5):  OK, I am going to cheat again and say see the comments for Secret Invasion Inhumans, but replace “Inhumans mark” with “Atomic Robo mark”.  Seriously, Heath Holland from the Geek Brunch podcast does a review of this issue for Indie Comic Book Noise 210 that got me excited to read the issue, even though I had already read it.

Thanks to Charles LePage’s ComicList for the list of the week’s new releases.

Requesting opinions on a possible format change

I am thinking about shaking up the format of the show a bit.  I have been having a ball talking to Angie on Indie Comic Book Noise, I had fun hosting the World War Hulk shows with Tim Terrell and I am planning on having a special guest co-host on an irregular basis (Hint:  His name rhymes with Reter Pios), but I was wondering if I should have rotating guest co-hosts.  For example, Angie on an episode, then Pios on the next, David A Price, then Mike Myers, et cetera and so on and so forth.  Sort of like Comic Timing, but with one person.

This is just something that has been going through my sleep deprived mind right now.  What do you think?

Comic Book Noise 119: Finding Balance, Unrealistic Realism and Defending Diamond

I talk about incomplete websites, trying to find the balance between the reading habits of the audience and my own changing reading habits, unrealistic realism in superhero comics, plugs for Tom Vs The JLA and Indie Comic Book Noise, the comics I bought on May 21, 2008, I defend Diamond a little and play the best transition music of all time.
