The "what are you reading" thread gave me the idea to kick off a comic book discussion thread. I was kind of surprised that we didn't have one going already, seeing as we have a rather diverse crowd of comic lovers. So, to get this one going, I bring this news:

And I couldn't be more excited by it! :)

I don't know if anyone here subscribes to him, but there's a YouTuber called Comic Tropes that does absolutely fantastic video essays on the industry. He covers everything from specific creators to the history of the industry. I highly reccomend his stuff.

So since we're discussing shows, what podcasts/videos are you guys listening to? Here are some of mine:

Comic Conspiracy (hosted by the owner of an LCS in California)
Casual Wednesdays (another done by owners in Chicago)
DC3Cast
BatForce Radio
Comic Geek Speak
Comic Book Commentary (the actual writer does a page-by-page commentary of the issue)
Power Cosmic Podcast (done by the guy that runs TerrifiCon)
Comic Book Historians

And of course, I also have to self-promote the Batman Universe Comic Podcast, which I co-host. Tomorrow's episode will have a mini rant from me regarding uniformity in continuity (or the lack thereof).

I went to my local shop for the first time since the lockdown.

I asked for Captain America volume #183482 issue #21.

They didn't have it despite it being advertised as available on their website.

They tried to direct me to Empyre. I told them that it's the same garbage that drove me away from collecting 20+years ago. They're having problems printing their issues but rather than taking care of their regular customers they chose to print a massive storyline that's going to cost hundreds to follow. My guess is that lots of the regular characters will have drastic changes to their stories that won't be explained in the regular books so that the regular books don't make sense.

Their question to me was "What's the big deal with Captain America #21? People keep asking for it but we hardly sell that book."

I told him that collectors want to make sure that we get it and it's months late. Other titles have been printed but now all that is released is Empyre.

The latest Darth Vader comic finally came out. Marvel is finally getting back to business.

Yeah. Marvel is really behind in their releases. Their last two Previews catalog was, for the most part, nothing but re-solicits.
