Just when it started to look like Saturday was the normal upload day for The Comic Book Attic, I have to switch things up.  Beware of me; I'm unpredictable...Actually, in a few days I will have my internet restored at home, and you will get an episode whenever I get one done (providing I have space on my account, of course).  That still means a (usually) weekly show, just no set day. 

Right now my computer is dissassembled, much like the Avengers (or currently, New Avengers) due to the arrival of new carpeting to our home.  So, I can't record a new episode until I reassemble the machine.  Even if I had a new one recorded, we're going to NYC Saturday.  I plan to visit Midtown Comics for the first time.  It oughta be an experience--oh, and the museums will be nice too. I will be sure to report on the trip in the show.

Episode 21 will be a lost episode.  Episode 22 will be new.  I'm working up to #25, which will, I hope, be a special event.  More on that in the show...

Check out all the new cover images with each podcast post.  I tried to make each cover fit with something I was talking about.  As a rule, I have chosen covers of comics I actually own for podcast entries.  For blog entries, anything goes.  All cover images are from the Grand Comics Database at http://www.comics.org
