For all of you Blackest Night fans, follow this link and you'll find an mp3 for a song from 1969 called "Black Lantern" by Caesar and his Romans. It's not too bad, actually.

A couple bits of news about the podcast:

The next episode will be out over Thanksgiving.  I've also recorded bits for a couple more episodes.

I have gone through and tried to delete the spam comments from the blogpage, for those of you who read the comments.

A few months back, I also went back through the past episodes and tried to update some of the links and embed videos formerly only linked to.

I'm going to toss in more old radio shows into the negative numbered episodes.

Finally, and most importantly, I will be reposting all the CBA content sloooooowly on The Attic of Babel page.  Eventually, all podcasts I do will be available on that one page.  (Don't worry, for the foreseeable future, this CBA blogpage will still exist.) 
The fun part of this is that I plan on doing a supplemental comic podcast for that page alongside each reposted CBA episode.  Consider it a commentary/update/further info podcast.  I shall call it CBA Postscript.

I didn't know him well, but from the small amount of contact we did have over the past couple years, I will very much miss his enthusiasm and opinions, his podcasting voice, his support, and his friendly demeanor.

September/October is one of the busiest times at work, and I got derailed from doing the podcast.  A new episode will appear soon, however.  I have material recorded and other material prepared.  I just need to put it together.  Until then, please enjoy some past episodes... or any of the other podcasts in The League of Comic Book Podcasts.

This forehead-slapper is all shades of wrong.  The advertising folks who came up with this one were obviously butt-stupid about comic books...
