Yup. I'm not dead yet. Although I haven't posted anything on this blog in quite some time, I've not stopped reading and thinking about comics. Albert and I have started a new podcast about comics called Between the Gutters.
The first few episodes out so far are about the top 25 Marvel comics of all time, where we count down from 25. Our first episode is giant-sized and we talk about comics 25-20 on our list. The subsequent episodes tend to cover two items apiece.
But there's always room for variation. This isn't a podcast solely for the purpose of talking about Marvel comics. It's intended to talk about anything about comics. We just decided to start with a countdown of the the 25 greatest Marvels ever because it would give us some structure to start out with. Leave a message if there's something you want to hear about, or a topic you think is worth discussion, or even if you just question or disagree with anything we covered in the podcast. It'd be great to form some sort of community via something we all enjoy - namely, comics.
You can leave a comment on this blog, or you can email us at email@example.com. We're on Twitter @btweentheguttrs. Our website is https://betweenthegutters.wixsite.com/betweenthegutters. We've been talking about setting up an Instagram account one of these days - mostly so we can post images of some of the comics we talk about, and even specific scenes we mention in our podcasts.

Oh, and why call ourselves "Between the Gutters?" It's because the gutters are the spaces of a comics page that separate the panels. So when we talk about what's between the gutters, we're talking about the stories within the panels.
