Secret Stacks Podcast Episode 4
Comics are seeing a new golden age – of talent, readers, and resources. Secret Stacks invites you to join a conversation between Kristin Lalonde and Thomas Maluck, two librarians who share comics and graphic novel news, readers advisory, guest interviews, and tales from the front lines of conventions and library services. Each episode appears here on CCGC Libraries on the second Wednesday of each month, with show notes to accompany topics covered in each episode.
Comics news, reviews, and previews tend to move blindingly fast. Take a moment to survey the past month’s happenings in the comics and libraries worlds with Kristin Lalonde and Thomas Maluck as we peruse the Secret Stacks. This month: Thomas attended HeroesCon and brought some surprises for Kristin and the audience! Subscriptions for comics and clothes are hyped! We take all the credit for the success of A-Force!
You can also find us on iTunes, Stitcher, or whatever podcast app of choice!

“When I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough? And I say ‘When there are nine.’ People are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.”
-Ruth Bader Ginsberg (originally about Supreme Court, but also relevant to A-Force gripers)
