Splash Page Podcast Summer Spectacular 2013 Volume 2

Tim Callahan and Chad Nevett have returned for the second in their series of Splash Page Podcast Summer Spectaculars. While it’s not five hours of podcasting gold, they do touch on many topics, including: introducing themselves to new listeners, superhero comics and their readers, the Bendis/Maleev Daredevil run with some stuff on superhero morality, novelistic comics, comics existing within a specific context (specifically Hawkeye #11), Justice League comics, reviewing comics and star ratings, publishers v. creators, works/writers that will live on for future generations, Tim’s book on the ’90s, DC and pull quotes, Chad writing about What If? AVX, and a little about their personal lives. And, as always, it begins with “We’re Hardcore” by Gord Downie.

Splash Page Podcast Summer Spectacular 2013 Volume 1

Tim Callahan and Chad Nevett are back for a short run of Splash Page Podcast Summer Spectacular 2013 shows and they’ve kicked things off with a five-hour marathon of comics discussion. Among the many, many topics discuss are: podcasting, the state of comics, X-Men comics, Daredevil: End of Days, Age of Ultron, Guardians of Galaxy, Fury: My War Gone By, reading comics when not writing about comics, Jupiter’s Legacy, random new comics, Marvel RPG, Forever Evil, some DC stuff, Matt Fraction Marvel comics, Hickman’s two Avengers titles, Thanos Rising, the new generation of comics readers, some recent movies, Rick Remender’s corner of the Marvel Universe, and, then, there’s like an hour or two about them talking about writing about comics, writing online, writing books, and more false endings than Return of the King (and more dated, unfunny jokes like that than you can imagine). And, it all kicks off with “We’re Hardcore” by Gord Downie.

The Splash Page Podcast 2011 Holiday Spectacular

Tim Callahan and I are back for a holiday podcast. It’s our special Christmas gift to all of you listeners. In this episode, we talk mostly about the best of 2011 with such topics as Holy Terror, some Marvel books like Daredevil, the Ultimates, and Uncanny X-Force, Scalped, Bendis’s Avengers, Casanova: Avaritia, Vengeance, Tim’s Alan Moore writing, and, then, we go into a long big talk about comics that touches on a variety of subjects before moving into books for the end. This episode is pretty much what you’d expect from us and was quite fun to do. Since it is a holiday episode, it’s bookended by a couple of songs from the Barenaked Ladies’s holiday album. So, download, listen, and enjoy — and have a happy holidays!

The Splash Page Podcast Episode 50

This is the last episode of the Splash Page Podcast.

In this episode, Tim and I discuss: some last episode random talk, Thor: Worldengine and Ultimate Comics Thor, Flashpoint #1, Daredevil: Reborn and Andy Diggle, Journey into Mystery #623, iZombie #12, some more random talk, New Avengers #12, Wanted, Batman, Incorporated #6, some more random talk, Irredeemable, and we end with the LIGHTNING ROUND!

And, harkening back to our first episode, there’s no “We’re Hardcore” this time, because, obviously, we’re not hardcore anymore. Instead, you get a new bit of intro music, some intro music to the lightning round, and something to exit by.

So, for the final time, download, listen, and enjoy!

(Also, clicking on the ‘I want more!’ button at this stage is nice, but… it’s over and done, folks.)
