People often ask me “Why don’t you do a podcast?”

I answer, “I do.”

• In this week’s More To Come podcast, Calvin Reid, Kate Fitzsimons and I talk about my MAN OF STEEL world premiere adventures, Apple’s e-book price fixing trial, DC’s new digital interactive line, DC Squared, the growth of new conventions and comics arts festivals, a shocking reversal in the Ghost Rider ownership dispute, and much more.

• If you happen to enjoy listening to me gab a lot, I was also on the 3 Chicks podcast with the great Kelly Thompson and Sue from DCWKA for a very stimulating discussion of many, many things:

Inside this episode! A review of Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s The Wake #1 and a review of Kick-Ass Volume 3 #1 by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. Heidi MacDonald from The Beat joins us to talk about all things comics, including of course the state of the industry, gender in comics, and what’s exciting her in comics today. We talk about DC’s big “Forever Evil” event (Surprise! Kelly hates it with every fiber of her being!) We also have an all new DRAMATIC READING from Sue, and you don’t want to miss it!

• And finally I am on today’s SDCONCAST 2013 with the ultra smart Rob Salkowitz.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! This week we welcome two great guests: Rob Salkowitz, author of Comic-Con and the Business of Pop Culture, and Heidi MacDonald of The Beat and Publishers Weekly, to talk comics and San Diego Comic-Con. And Jeremy, James and Kim round up the week’s news of panel announcements and offsite events. It’s like cat herding, SDCC-style!

You will be so sick of listening to me blab! It’s like a night hanging out at the Rodeo Bar.

Thanks to Sue, Kelly and Jeremy for inviting me on and Calvin and Kate for being such great regular podcastin’ pals.

Comments

  1. I listens to this whole podcast at i dunno who’s voice is which but the way they seem to only follow books with female characters or by female creators seems almost just as sexist as anything they complain about.

    I heard one person say about Iron Man “It’s a boy book so I don’t care”

    No one looks at coal miners or construction workers and says why are they all males and no female like they do for comics.

  2. Kate Fitzsimons says:

    … What. Dude, I’m one-third of this podcast and I don’t remember anyone saying anything like that. Maybe Heidi said it as a joke several episodes ago? But that’s very much not the attitude of this podcast.

    We talk about comics we love all the time and at least 50% of them are by or about men, almost certainly way more than that. If we mention that we like comics by or about women, it’s because we do, they’re hard to find, and certain types like to claim they don’t exist and/or aren’t any good. Not because we don’t like books by or about men.
