It's halfway through the week. This is usually the day the "Ask, and Ye Shall Receive…Answers" video goes up. For those that haven't watched any of the previous twenty-five episodes, it was basically a Q & A video where questions were taken from all of you in the Comic Vine community. There has been plenty of questions and I've done my best to answer as many as possible, with the videos running 30 - 50 minutes. I've had plenty of people come up to me at New York Comic Con and Long Beach Comic Con telling me they're enjoying the videos.
So how come there isn't one this week?
The main reason is time. It's not the 50 minutes or so of recording. It's the editing, spending too much time looking for silly comic book images, processing the video and then sending it off electronically to be uploaded onto our video player. The way I see it, maybe video isn't absolutely essential. Recording it as a podcast allows for a quicker editing time. This marks the first episode which I'm planning on calling "The Invincibly Super Massive Comic Book Podcast of Stuff." That actually just came to me Monday night. When I recorded the first episode, I hadn't really given the name too much thought.
Where can you find this new fancy (not really) podcast? For now, you can find it on the regular podcast page. You can CLICK HERE to get there.
This is not meant to replace the existing podcast. We will still have the regular Friday podcast. Before the new one can have it's own sub-page, a little design work needs to be done and I sort of sprung it on the Top Men at the last minute.
It won't just be a straight hour or so of me just answering your questions. I do plan to mix things up a little from time to time. I have to keep some things so there'll be some surprises.
Most of the pre-feedback I received seemed to be positive for this new direction. But here's a little spoiler, I've actually filmed another mini-"Ask" episode for next week. I basically just took one question and spent time discussing it. It'll be a mixture of the old video "Off My Mind" mixed with a question from you guys.
Please let me know what you think of the new format either here or on the podcast page. Next week (hopefully) we'll have a new page for it with a new RSS feed and all that jazz. I did record this after the two hour and fifteen minute podcast last week. And I could've used a glass of water.
Now you have the option of listening on the go. You can download it and listen on your way to work or school, while you're mowing the lawn or even during those special times with your significant other. Enjoy the show.
