This Means Gwar! With Matt Miner

Can you believe it's been 100 episodes? Me neither! Joining Martin on this momentous occasion is writer and editor Matt Miner whom you may know from such projects as This Nightmare Kills Fascists, and All We Ever Wanted: Stories of a Better World. Matt has a new book out from Waxwork Comics called Poser, a slasher horror story set within the punk rock scene of California that Martin really loved. The two talk about all these projects plus, the merits of Kickstarter, their shared love of anthologies, the evolution of the punk rock scene over the years and more!

Comic Talk Today is back and on this episode, Martin digs into a little big of news including DC Nation orders topping one million, Action Comics #1000 sales at 500,000+, a Batgirl writer has been chosen, and Marvel is launching some odd news shows. Then, Martin digs into just what is going on with the 99 cent Marvel sales on Comixology, whether Marvel is aware that it's going on, and whether the outrage by retailers is being blown out of proportion.
Welcome back to Comic Talk Today! In this episode, Martin talks about the importance of being earnest. Why publishers and creators should be straightforward and honest with fans, and why it's important to have the right kind of engagement. Plus, he takes a look at some publishers that are doing it right, and some that have fallen by the wayside. 
Thursday means it's time for some comic book therapy and this week, Martin's long time friend and collaborator on the Valiant Central Podcast, Paul Tesseneer, joins Comic Talk Today to talk all manners of comic goodness as the boys dive deep into Vault Comics new preorder system for fans and shops, BookIt! Plus, a mention of the League of Comic Geek's competing service and more! Plus, stay tuned through the end as Martin tests Paul's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knowledge.
Martin returns with a new episode of Comic Talk Today in which he discusses some feedback from the last episode about the future of comics before getting into the news about Black Panther becoming one of the top ten highest grossing films of all time, and the teaser of Extermination which could change the landscape for X-Men comics at Marvel. Then, it's time for Comic Predictor where Martin picks some books to look out for on this new comic book day! Also, check out the new God Hates Astronauts Kickstarter!
It's a new week and it's time for a new episode of Comic Talk Today! In this episode, Martin goes into full rant mode to talk about how the evolution of comics from the newstand to the direct market has lead to the situation the industry is in today, how has the Hollywood rush has changed comics, what brick and mortar shops closing means for the future of comics, and whether the whole industry is doomed or if there is some hope for the future.
