Cape Talk

As we tucked into yesterday’s new batch of comics (Solomon Grundy vs. The JLA!), we were reminded that two local podcasts help us to get our fix of comics, 2006_12_holytrinity.jpgregardless of the day of the week.

Around Comics is hosted by three guys named Chris, Tom and Sal. The show features panel discussions of the latest comics and news from the industry as well as interviews with legendary artists and writers like John Byrne.

Wordballoon is a comics podcast hosted by John Siuntres, a veteran Chicago broadcaster. He manages to corral some of comicdom’s biggest names like Mark Waid, Brian Michael Bendis and Geoff Johns.

Other non-local podcasts we’ve been checking out as of late include Raging Bullets, an audio examination of the DC Universe and its Marvel counterpart Bullpen Bulletins; Fanboy Radio Podcast, which covers both the big comics titans and the indie entities; and Comic Timing.
