A Comicbook Orange

While I was strumming through the iTunes store for an interesting podcast, I stumbled upon the podcast website known as “A Comicbook Orange”. This podcast keeps subscribers up-to-date with the latest news from the comic book world, reviewing new comic book releases and interviewing people within the business. The particular podcast I watched talked about a new comic books expanding on franchises and movies, such as Die Hard and X-men. After watching this podcast, it dawned on my how important comic books are for the read-write culture. Many comic books often take up something that is old or already present and can turn it into something completely new. The specific comic book that caught my eye during the podcast was called “Die Hard: Year One”. This comic book takes up from the old Die Hard series and start from the beginning, when John McClain was just an ordinary cop just starting his job. This shows how comic books can expand on the work of others and make something totally new and different by adding their own unique spins onto the previous work. Plenty of other examples exist throughout the podcast, and it just goers to show how much comic books have an effect on the RW culture. Though the world is turning away from books and paper for entertainment and news, a podcast being a prime example, comic books are still a valuable asset that facilitates growth of the RW culture.

    I think it’s cool how many podcasts there are on Itunes, especially ones like these. It’s great how you can find a podcast on just about anything these days. I also find it interesting that comic books relate to RW culture. I would never have thought about how comic books could remix ideas in such a way.

    I like the name “a comic book orange”!

    If you don’t already know, it’s derived from the novel a Clockwork Orange.

    Thanks for writing this blog. It definitely got me interested in the site and its background/inspiration.

    Speaking of comics, I’ve heard in the latest batman series that Batman’s illegitimate son came to Gotham and cut off some guy’s head…then later beat up the old Robin.
    Comic books are getting weird.

    I must agree this is amazing that even comic books are becoming part of read write culture. I find it interesting that people are able to remix and enhance already imaginative and well made works such as comic books.
