Albany Comic-Con this Weekend. Who's Going?

This Sunday, April 25th, I'll be at the Albany Comic Con (at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road). The doors open at 10 AM, and you know who else will be there?

Ron Marz. Keith Dallas. Matthew Dow Smith. Terry Austin. Todd Dezago. Joe Staton. Fred Hembeck. Declan Shalvey. And more, I'm sure.

It's a good little show, getting bigger every year. So look for me, and say "hey."

I'm sure I'll run into Alan David Doane in Albany, and did I mention that my review of "Millar & McNiven's Nemesis" #1 recently ran over at his "Trouble with Comics" site? Well, it did. I wrote far more words than I expected and it captures how I feel about that comic and so much of Mark Millar's work.

See you in Albany!

Splash Page Podcast Episode 12.1: Frank Miller! More!

The booze, the broads, and the bullets -- we talk about them all in this week's Splash Page episode. It's Frank Miller, non-stop. Except for all the time we spend talking about other things. Like our new theme song. And MoCCA. And other things.

Besides that, it's Chad and I talking about Frank Miller and why I don't think the "Wolverine" miniseries is very good. And more!

The Splash Page Podcast, Episode 11.2: I'm Sorry

I forgot to post a link to our second podcast from last week, but that's not why I'm sorry.

I'm sorry because I spent more time talking about "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight" #34. Or, as I like to call it: Brad Meltzer likes Alan Moore comics, but has really bad taste, example #infinity.

Chad and I also talk about other important things, like bad readers, bad teachers, and good comics.

The Splash Page Podcast, Episode 11.1: Talking, Shielding

I bumped into some people on my world travels this weekend who said, "hey, I love the podcast you and Chad are doing." Thanks for saying that, people of the world.

And because of your love, we talk about podcasting in this week's meta-podcast which also provides a snapshot of the CBR review staff -- per popular demand -- and a debate about Jonathan Hickman's new "S.H.I.E.L.D." comic. Is it really great, or just great? That seems to be the point of contention.

The Splash Page Solocast: Callahan-Style

With Chad away on some kind of Easter mission into the hinterlands, we couldn't get together to record the normal Splash Page Podcast this week. (Not that we ever actually get together, but we are both online at the same time, and that counts for something. And we couldn't even do that this weekend.)

So what you get instead is the first Splash Page Solocast, featuring me and me alone. No nonsense about wrestling or Canada or why Geoff Johns is not awesome. Just me talking about what I read last week, what I've been working on, a whole lot of Bendis and Finch "New Avengers" talk, a shout-out to "GØDLAND," and message board idiocy. The usual. But without Chad. And more serious, because it's not like I'm going to try to make jokes on my own behalf and then laugh at myself.

Oh, and I refer to Brendan McCarthy as Peter Milligan at one point, which is pretty dumb.

Other than that, I'm sure it's some kind of brilliant episode. Chad's Solocast will follow on Monday, if all goes according to plan. Then back to normal next week.
