You’ve waited, for what feels like centuries. And now, at long last, it is finally here. What is “it” you ask? Well, obviously if you’re on this website – you know that “it” must be the next issue of Comic Relief Podcast! That’s right, just under the gun of the (delayed) Sunday deadline – Comic Relief Podcast #3 is finally completed! (Okay, sure if you’re not on the West Coast, it’s already Monday – and if you’re in Australia, you’re like three weeks into the future – but still!)
This Issue covers the assortment of Independent comics that have been released. While there are literally, hundreds and hundreds of indie titles that have entered the comic book world – some meeting with amazing success, some crashing and burning just after their first issue – Tawmis and Maico cover an assortment of indie titles that have caught their interest in some way. Some of what is covered includes the success of Image Comics, The Walking Dead (Maybe You’ve Heard Of It?), Saga, Chew, Wanted, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Comics, ElfQuest, ElfLord, The Adventurers, as well as The Tick. And finally, Maico conducts and interview with Jacob, of Wendigo Comics about what to expect if you launch your own Indie Comic Book Company.
PLEASE NOTE! We’re going to try something new! Came up with an idea, that I don’t think has been used before! We’re opening up a “Letter’s Page” – a way to get YOUR voice on the Comic Relief Podcast!
Here’s how it works – you record your own voice, giving your opinion, thoughts, etc – about the episode(s) you’ve heard! Then, like the letter’s pages of comics – we will put them at the end of the podcast (once we have collected a few of them!) You can send them to us!
Naturally, we reserve the right to edit, censor and modify what you send us (to make sure it’s clean, clear out noise, shorten whatever you may send, etc).
NOTE: When/IF you send us something – please be sure there is NO music or anything playing in the background that may be owned / copyrighted by someone else. We will NOT be able to use those pieces!
