This week I was a guest on The Unspoken Decade podcast!
Longbox Graveyard fans will remember that the Unspoken Decade is the blogging home of Dean Compton, a frequent Longbox Graveyard contributor. Over at the Unspoken Decade, Dean talks all things nineties in the world of comics.
so very 90s!
Our podcast was a good-natured point/counterpoint of the relative merits of 1990s vs. 1970s comics.
Thanks, Dean, for having this Bronze Age relic on your show! Kinda grim to be the “old guy” in a conversation where the newest ideas on offer are already a quarter-century old … but that comes with the kit, given that I permanently reside in the year of 1978!
(And remember that you can listen to all my various podcast appearances on the Longbox Graveyard Podcast page!)
Several days ago I had the pleasure of participating in a podcast with my old pals over at the We Talk Podcasts network.
The topic was Marvelous Mythology, a new book by Todd Frye, which recounts the origins of the Marvel Universe. The We Talk Comics crew was kind enough to have me on the show as a guest expert on Silver Age Marvel Comics as we interviewed Todd about his book.
It was great to be on a podcast again. Thanks to Mo at We Talk Comics for having me on! You can listen to the podcast here, and don’t forget that all of my podcast appearances are archived on my podcast page!
It’s only taken two decades, but the publicity campaign for the two issues of Rune that I wrote is finally hotting up!
That’s right! Two issues of Rune (that I blogged about writing, HERE) were recently the subject of not one; and not TWO; but THREE podcasts by the illustrious Professor Alan!
You can listen to Prof Alan’s assessment of Rune #4 HERE.
And you can listen to Prof Alan’s review of Rune #5 HERE.
And then you can listen to Prof Alan interview ME about both those books (and other comics stuff, besides) HERE!
And for a really deep dive, be sure to check out my original comic scripts for these issues of Rune!
There you have it … all the Rune you can stand … and a blast from the past in the form of a contemporary interview about work I did in the 1990s. Gotta love the internet! And you gotta love Prof Alan for exhuming my stuff from the Quarter Bin.
You may remember that live podcast I plugged here several days ago.
For technical reasons beyond anyone’s control, the “live” part didn’t happen … and it also appeared that the podcast itself had been lost to the great digital beyond.
But, Lo and Behold … my episode of Compton After Dark has popped up on iTunes!
it’s a miracle!
Give it a listen … we discuss The New Gods, among many, many other things.
And thanks to frequent Longbox Graveyard contributor Dean Compton for having me on the show!
I will be a guest on Voc Nation tonight — Sunday, April 13th — starting at 11:30 PM EST!
Because you have nothing better to do at that hour, you need to listen. Even better, call in with a question or comment … this is a LIVE podcast, and while it will be immortalized in some archive after the show, tonight is your unique chance to call me names before a breathless online audience.
Talk to you soon!
