Another One Bites The Dust: Podcast Style

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
10) Komicskast

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.

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.

Comics Playground 16 – Big, Red & Cheesy

The guys are back to the usual all-ages formula with a Required Reading review of the much-anticipated, long-awaited “Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam!” To add to the magic, the guys share their wisdom of Solomon with reviews of two other lesser-known all-ages titles. Eric also has a webcomic to share and Ryan shares his favorite news item to come out of San Diego. SHAZAM!

Comics Now Issue 1

Hopefully by now, you have been able to get a copy of the Comics Now magazine’s first issue. If not, then I would suggest getting a copy. The main reason is the podcasting column, written by Bruce Rosenberger and myself. It is a brief overview of comic book podcasting. It is NOT a comprehensive look at the comic book podcasting community and it was written a long time ago. There are references to Bullpen Bulletins, Digital Strips and THOOM!, all of which are no longer with us. This is a COLUMN and not an ARTICLE. A column is a regularly occurring feature. An article is a one shot deal. (Yes, I know about the existence of ’a series of articles’, but this isn’t the case.)

If there is a podcast that you would like to see featured, then let me know. Chances are I have worked them into my future plans, but on the off chance that I haven’t, let me know about it. Just realize that I have already finished the second column and we have already started on the third, with plans being set up for the next six after that. So since Comics Now is a quarterly magazine, you may have to wait until 2010 for your suggestion to see the light of day.

Not everybody is going to be mentioned every issue. In fact, the only ones I can guarantee that will be mentioned in each column will be Comic Book Noise and
Komicskast, but that’s to be expected. Not everyone will have big long paragraphs devoted to their podcast, not even CBNoise or KKast. Trust me, there is a method to my madness. Some time in the hopefully distant future, when I have written my final word on comic book podcasting, it will all make sense.
