Martin is back with an all new episode of Comic Talk Today to talk about comic book delays...because what better way to deflect the podcast delays than by talking about other things being delayed. In this episode, Martin talks about how book delays impact fan enjoyment of a story, why delays happen, and whether we should really care in a discussion inspired by the resolicitation of Batman and The Outsiders. 

Martin's battling a supervillainous cold so no new episode today, but he wanted to put out some words from Stan Lee today, a day after his passing at the age of 95. This is not a sad tribute of a man who shaped comics for many decades, but a call to action to make comics a better and more inclusive place for everyone. Thanks for listening. Excelsior!

Aaron Bell and Ronnie Barron from the Absolute DC Podcast join Martin once again for another episode of Kickstarter corner! The boys kick off with a discussion of whether established publishers should be kickstarting books in response to a book Martin found on the site then dive deep into some fantastic Kickstarter comic book projects you should consider giving a shot. God knows we bought all of them. 

It's time for rant episode of Comic Talk Today as Martin discusses the recent news that Dark Horse Comics has received a large investment from Chinese investment firm Vanguard Visionary Assets to expand their line internationally and into film and TV. Is this a good move for Dark Horse or does the deal look awfully similar to one another company made in the past few years that may have negatively impacted their publishing line? Tune in and find out. 

It's a new week and that means it's time for Top Of The Pile, the segment in which Martin discusses some of his favorite books from last week's new comic book day. Of course, last week was Halloween so every publisher had to have a book in the spooky spirit, but fear not, there's a couple of good old superhero books that made the list. Stay tuned to the end for some book recommendations for this Wednesday as well!
