Host Derek Coward returns with a quick review of Love and Rockets: The New Stories #3 (thanks to Dave Slusher) and begins a look at the great ‘Heartbreak Soup’.
With the impending return of Marvelman to comics, I think I should finally get off my ass and do the issue by issue breakdown of the Miracleman series from Eclipse. My only question is should I do it for The Readerfeed or Comic Book Noise. They would both be in the same feed, but The Readerfeed shows would have more of a standalone feel to it, while the Comic Book Noise shows might have other comic book related crap on them.
I’m trying to come up with a name for my new podcast about Love and Rockets. I am torn between being specific or being clever.

Flies On The Ceiling
Flies On The Ceiling: A Love and Rockets Podcast
Greetings From Palomar/Greetings From Hoppers
A Podcast About Heartbreak Soup and Maggie and Hopey
I’m leaning heavily towards the third one. What do you think?
This show contains a long, preachy ramble with very little comic book talk while host Derek Coward is driving. Names are dropped and feelings might be hurt, but the intention of the episode is pure and started from a good place.
And just when you think it is done, Derek comes back with a short discussion about the end of Wednesday Comics as well as what he picked up this week.
Why is there no podcast devoted to The Incredible Hulk? The guy has been able to sustain hundreds of comic book issues, several dozen miniseries and trades, a couple of television shows and two major studio films, but no one has thought to do a podcast talking about him? The closest thing that I know about was the series of World War Hulk shows that I hosted with Tim Terrell a few years ago. Since then, nothing.
If it is a case of not knowing (or wanting to know) how to deal with RSS Feeds, uploading, maintaining a forum, website administration or all the rest of the rigmarole, then I would be more than happy to host the show on The ReaderFeed until the host got their feet wet enough to go off on their own.
The ReaderFeed shows have been gaining a bit of notoriety. Matt Kramer’s The Shade’s Journal got him a mention in the latest Starman Omnibus and Welcome To Heavenside’s Damian Smith was recently featured on Avatar Press’s website. I’m sure that a lot of that has to do with the fact that they are the only podcasts devoted to those subjects.
If somebody else doesn’t jump on this, then I might have to go out and start buying up some Incredible Hulk books and do it myself. Or maybe I should just start with some miniseries from the past then take it from there.
