Secret Stacks Podcast Episode 8
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.
You can also find us on iTunes, Stitcher, or whatever podcast app of choice!
Kristin’s Fantastic Four
Thomas’s Fantastic Four
Capt. Marvel (Monica Rambeau)
Recommendations for big-name superheroes’ starting places: admittedly, answering this question could take up a couple dozen blog posts’ worth of information, but Thomas enjoys tilting at this windmill on his library’s blog. There are posts about Batman, Superman, Weird Batman, Batgirl, Supergirl, DC’s New 52, X-Men, Green Lantern, Daredevil, Flash, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, and Naruto manga readalikes.
Then there’s the official CCGC post about Collecting the New 52, DC’s own Graphic Novel Essentials and Chronology, and Comic Book Herald’s Marvel Reading Order Guide. There’s a lot to digest in these links, but we hope they lead to a lot to read on your shelves!
