Why I Love Comics: The Audio Edition
Eric Ratcliffe and friends discuss all things pop culture, from comics, to movies, to video games, to music and more each week.

Welcome to a very special edition of the podcast as we mix things up a bit. I'm joined by longtime friend and returning CR writer Russell Burlingame, freelance artist and part of the Feeding Ground crew Michael Lapinski and joker cosplayer extraordinaire Andre Beshta.

Now for those that don't listen regularly we had two recent shows with the Nerd Girls Eye View and the Feeding Ground crew where I determined that it's fun to have a crew on the show so I decided to let this madness occur. Think of us as a tough crowd/chelsea handler type of podcast. (I'll still be doing the interview episodes as well, I promise!)

In this very episode we discuss our celebrity look alike, the death of Wizard magazine (Russ was once an intern at Wizard and his insights are a great listen), upcoming comic movies and we're also talking about death in comics (Johnny Storm, the Dibny's) and we even cover a bit of Identity Crisis (and our general like of Brad Meltzer). Oh and Russ gives us a little more insight into the Sentry controversy that Wizard helped set up.

Also of note: Future shows will probably just focus on one topic but for this first one we jumped around a lot. Join us on the forums to discuss what we talked about, and definitely give us your thoughts!

Next time the crew gets together, we talk event books and the effects on the average comic reader!
