Finally, he wraps up the news with some talk about the DC Universe service and what to expect. Then, it's Comic Predictor time as he dives into some comic recommendations for tomorrow's new comic book day.

On an all new episode of Comic Talk Today, Martin premieres a new series entitled Secret Origins, in which he looks at some iconic comic book characters and dives into how their origin stories have changed over the years.

It's Thursday and that means it's time for a little comic book therapy on Comic Talk Today! This week, Martin is joined by Portland-based writer and artist Colin Lawler to discuss his book Spirits: The Soul Collector, currently running as a Kickstarter and also available on Webtoons. Colin and Martin dive into what the story is about, being inspired by Jeff Smith and Hayao Miyazaki, crafting an original story, the differences between print and digital publishing, working with Kickstarter, and more!

Get ready for a jam packed episode of Comic Talk Today as Martin dives deep into some really fantastic listener questions! In this episode: why can’t comic book sales come anywhere close to what they used to be? Will we see a streamlining of comic publishers like we're seeing in other types of media? What are some books or arcs that really kicked Martin in the gut? If Martin could set a comic book in any horror movie universe, why would it be Constantine in Nightmare On Elm Street? ...and so many more! Thanks for listening!
