Welcome back to another episode of Comic Talk Today! On this episode, Martin discusses Diamond's plans to bring back the spinner rack by using comic book shops as a third party to test out selling comics at "complimentary" locations. Will it work? Martin has some thoughts on that. Plus, Martin answers listener questions about how publishers can keep their readers happy, his favorite comic book runs and creative teams, whether the industry is dying or not (it's not) and more!
On this episode of Comic Talk Today, Martin takes a look at the past and discusses some comic book news before taking a peak into the future to talk about some book recommendations for this week's new comic book day. In the news segment, DC Black Label launch dates announced, plus an interesting reprint strategy from DC, the Maxx returns! (maybe), Heroes In Crisis gets announced and Martin's not sure what to think, Ahoy Comics wants to make comics great again, and Marvel wants to mash up all their superheroes in a teaser!
It is a new week which means it's time for Top Of The Pile, the episode in which Martin discusses some of his favorite reads from last new comic book day. On this episode, Martin dives deep into Venom #2, Port of Earth #6, Nancy Drew #1, Stellar #1, Babyteeth #11, Hawkman #1, Plastic Man #1, The Weatherman #1, and Netflix's first foray into comics with The Magic Order #1. Thanks for listening!
Thursday means it's time for a little comic book therapy and this week, Martin is joined by writer and artist Bridgit Connell to discuss her new book from Titan Comics, Brother Nash. Martin and Bridgit dive deep into the move from web comic to published work, the inspiration for the book, creating such a deep mythology in her series, and of course, what it's like to break into the industry. 
Inspired by a recent article Martin read with a quote from a Fox executive, Martin goes on a rant about why Hollywood should double down on comic books as an inspiration for future ideas instead of bashing on studios that rely on comics for a large source of their revenue The numbers don't lie, comic book movies are a hit. Then, Martin takes some listener questions about sequential art, print vs digital and finding the time to get through reading your pull list.
