Splash Page Podcast 6.1: Stahlmaster, Humanization!

In the first of two episodes this week, Chad Nevett and I address some complaints about decompression, and what it means to humanize superheroes, and the comics stylings of Steve Englehart. We also talk about "Blackest Night," because that's what I think of when I think of humanized superheroes. Or the opposite.

Batman with a beer does not make an appearance, but he's with us in spirit. Moustachioed, creepy spirit.

Splash Page Podcast Episode 5: Johnsy, Joe the Barbariantastic

This week, Chad Nevett and I talk about the new DC executive restructuring/promotions even though we really have no insight into the topic whatsoever. But somehow, I make it all about me.

We also talk "Joe the Barbarian" and Fraction's Uncanny effort to bring the Morrison x-continuity back into play.

It's kind of a shorter episode, because I had to write a whole bunch of stuff this weekend, and so I ditched Chad a bit early.

Oh, and we talk about curling.

The Splash Page Podcast, Episode 4: Daytrippy, Listy

We have this podomatic PRO account now so we can keep this podcast alive. Basically, we ran out of room with the free account -- over 600 downloads of the first few episodes will do that to you, apparently. So now you should have no problem listening to Chad and I talk comics. No more, "blah blah blah make a donation" message. At least for now.

This week, we talk about "Daytripper," "Batman and Robin," Jim Starlin, and kind of list our Top 5 DC runs of the last 5 years, but that's a pretty dull topic and we get past that with appropriate swiftness. And, for the record, we'll stay away from any sort of lists from now on. Lists on blogs are great. Lists on podcasts are like listening to someone read a list.

Splash Page Podcast Episode 3: Ghosty, Clandestiny

One episode a week from now on. That's all you're getting, and it will be damn good. This week, Chad Nevett and I talk about Jason Aaron's now-concluded "Ghost Rider" run, Alan Davis and vague memories of "Clandestine," the true protagonists of "Secret Warriors," and some other gems of wisdom, I'm sure.

Listen, learn, love.

The Splash Page Podcast, Episode 2.3: Redeeming, Corrupting

You're right. Three episodes of "The Splash Page" podcast in one week is too much. Chad and I are like kids taking Uncle Steve's car for a spin, and we just took it too far, too fast.

We're going with the more traditional one-episode-per-week format from now on, which will allow us to (a) spend less time recording, (b) give Chad a break from so much editing and posting, (c) focus on quality over quantity.

Actually, part (c) probably isn't going to happen, as it will still just be us talking about whatever comic-related stuff comes across our desks that week. But we'll try to make it better. For the people.

One last huge chunk of Episode 2 for you to listen to, while you wait for next week's conversation to hit the streets. In this one, we talk about Mark Waid comics, and a whole lot of other stuff? If I remember correctly.

The Splash Page Podcast, Episode 2.2: Crying, Reviewing

It's time for ANOTHER episode of the Splash Page podcast. This thing is like crack and Chad Nevett and I are injecting it straight into your geeky veins. Three times this week! I know, you'd better be careful.

In this episode, it's me talking "Cry for Justice," a bunch of talk about how we approach reviews, and I'm sure plenty of other stuff. I don't know, I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but I know it's genius.
