Censorship in Comic Books And More
Greetings, dear listeners! Are you prepared for a new, hearty and entertaining episode of the Bags and Boards Show With ComicTom101 podcast? If so, then you’re in the right place! We’re here to bring you the latest in not just comic book speculation news, but recent activity and popular conversation floating about the comic book collecting community. If you haven’t had the opportunity, check out the ComicTom101 YouTube Channel for more comic book pleasure!
If you’ve been with us before, then you know we like to kick things off with a recap on the previous week just in case you missed anything. One of the biggest things we discussed was Wolverine and his “first appearances.” A subject as old as time, we recently discovered that in The Comic Reader #117, there is what can be considered Wolverine’s first appearance of his second full appearance.
A couple weeks ago, we reflected over comic book creator Todd McFarlane and how he’s doing private signings with CGC. What really got people’s attention was his announcement that there were several books he wouldn’t sign. Well now we’re talking about McFarlane once again, as he streamed a video discussing the comics he wouldn’t sign, while also showing off a couple of his personal comic book grails. To put it simply, what we wouldn’t give to not only possess some of McFarlane’s key issues, but to also look through and see what other goodies he’s acquired over the years.
Lastly, this podcast was one where we reflected on the comic book medium as a whole, rather than a truckload of speculation news. In other words, we dedicated our energies to a couple important subjects that every comic collector is well acquainted with. We spoke at length about censorship and comics that have been deemed controversial. It’s not something we can go into depth here, if only because the topics are lenghty, but if those are subjects that interest you (and they should due to how important they are), then you’ll want to pay attention to this episode.
And that wraps up our latest Bags and Boards Show With ComicTom101! Trust us, there was plenty more discussed this time, and if you’re intrigued, you’ll have to check out the ComicTom101 YouTube page and/or listen the podcast itself over on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Stitcher! Don’t forget to come back every Sunday for a brand new episode!
As always, geek responsibly! ‘Nuff said!
