Near Mint Comic Show Announces New Podcast: The Comic Book Club

Josh and Ben at GraniteCon 2010

So the fans have spoken with downloads, emails, letters and even skywriters.

A monthly podcast isn’t enough, so the minds behind the Near Mint Comic Show have added a new free agent to their roster: The Comic Book Club at Double Midnight Comics.

What is it?

CBC will be a monthly audio show with a rotating panel of guests, recorded live and in person at our friendly neighborhood comic shop: Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH. The guys have been great to work with so far and we’re happy to have them along for the ride.

The format is very simple. A rotating roundtable of comic experts and creators will discuss one thing they individually read (old or new, single issue or trade) and one thing that everyone will read – both in separate segments. Each show is expected to run about an hour, perfect for a drive into work, the gym or shopping in your favorite comic book store.

As always, reader suggestions are encouraged for what the group should check out next and you never know…you could be asked to join the group to discuss it as part of a future roundtable!

Does this mean the NMCS is going away?

Don’t be sad, Petey. The mighty Near Mint Comic Show isn’t going anywhere and will still be recorded every 4-6 weeks.

So when’s the first show?

The first edition of CBC will be recorded this week with a release expected shortly after that. Listen to the first show and let us know what you think!

Because of your support (and honestly, Ben’s drive), the addition of a second show is possible. Thank you for your love of the NMCS in 2010 and expect more in 2011!

And for the love of Peter Parker, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, will ya?
