ComicMix Radio: Broadcast Blog
Let’s take a lazy Sunday and add in a few links and recaps of things you might have missed on this week’s ComicMix Radio:
- This week Wanted‘s Mark Millar and Ex Machina‘s Tony Harris hit the shores of the United States to promote War Heroes. Starting at New York’s Midtown Comics and ending on the west coast, fans will have a chance to get to meet Mark and Tony as well as nabbing a copy of the extremely limited War Heroes #1 Tour Of Duty Edition. According to Image Comics, this special edition will never be made available again. By the way, War Heroes #1 has sold out from Image and there is no word yet on a second printing. For the full schedule of the tour, go here.
- On your way out west to follow Mark & Tony, try and work out a stop in Toledo, Ohio tomorrow to see Marvel artist Greg Horn throw out the first pitch in a Toledo Mudhens game. It’s not the usual spot you find someone from our world, but Greg got the chance to do this because Mudhens’ Assistant General Manager Neil Neukam is a big fan of his work.
- As you read here on ComicMix, Michael I. Silberkleit, the chairman of Archie Comic Publications, died August 5th in New York City at the age of 76, after a short battle with cancer. Keep a close eye here for Arcihe Comics’ official tribute which should be on the site any day now.
- Top Cow has the voting polls for Pilot Season 2008 wide open. If you have been following the series of try-outs, you can vote for your favorite title out of the six one-shots that were put out this summer. Polling stations are now set up at the Top Cow main site , the Top Cow MySpace page and the Pilot Season MySpace page. Readers can vote once per day until the polls close on September 8, 2008. Did you know that last year’s top two vote getters, Cyblade and Velocity, will debut with new series later this year, mainly due to the over four million votes were cast.
We are back on the broadcast on Tuesday with our run down of new comics and DVD releases and more from Torchwood Executive Producer Julie Gardner and series star, Naoko Mori. And remember, you can always subscribe to ComicMix Radio podcasts via or RSS!
