Broadcast blog’s weekly wound-up
Political bally ho and slightly skewed polls have driven us the web to be entertained this week. Let us share our links from our podcasts:
- More fun than Bill O’Reily, we have Atom Films election-themed site of games, music videos and gags. Our favorite is the Kung-Fu game which invites players to choose their favorite candidate and take them into battle against a political enemy (that Hilary has a mean round house kick!)
- Archie Comics’ new expanded web site is live. There are expanded message areas for all their titles and most of their individual characters like That Wilkin Boy, Dilton, Captain Sprocket, and even Reggie. By the way, all posts will be read by a member of the Archie Comics staff prior to posting so that parents will be able to feel safe when their children are visiting the Archie Comics site.
- Virgin Comics’ sold-out Dan Dare #1 can now be seen online as part of their Widescreen Digital Comic Book series. Segments are being posted every Monday and Wednesday. Meanwhile, Dan Dare #2 should still be in comic stores now and #3 is scheduled to street on January 23rd. Virgin Comics’ Dan Dare is written, of course, Garth Ennis which probably explains the sell-out.
- Yoko Ono introduced the new John Lennon Educational Tour Bus at CES last week and you can see it, plus the tour schedule, at http://www.lennonbus.org/. The goal of the bus is to provide kids with a free hands-on opportunity to create and record their own music, produce videos and take digital photos, and will continue to offer tours and workshops. Throughout 2008 the bus, which features a recording studio and a range of great state-of-the-art equipment, will make stops at high schools, colleges and university campuses, and retailers.
Back on the Broadcast in a couple of days with our rundown of new comics & DVDs, then later on we continue our poll for “favorite hero”. This time we get a response not from a comic creator, but an actual character himself. Catch it on ComicMix Radio this week!
