We are pleased to announce that our good friend Angela Valenti is coming out of retirement to resume her excellent comics podcast, Girls Don’t Read Comics. With years of experience, both in the industry and with comics and podcasts in general, we are excited to deliver her, unedited, to you! Check episode one – Project Catch-up: Read stacks, pull lists, and Bodies! -Ed.
Once upon a time, there was a lady who worked at The Comic Book Shop. She was the manager of the shop and had lots of free time in the evenings. After awhile she decided that it might be fun to do a podcast about all the stuff she was reading. Upon thinking about it a bit, she decided to call it “Girls Don’t Read Comics” as a way to work out some anger issues over people insisting (often on the internet) that she was imaginary. Because, you guessed it – Girls don’t read comics. Read in snarky voice. Her podcast ran for several (irregular) years. After 62 episodes and having a baby, she decided it might be time to stop doing the show. So she did. *tears*
Then one day, when her son was walking and talking, she decided that her brain was turning into oatmeal and she was slowly going insane. Her “to read” stack was taking over the spare bedroom, occasionally growling and rattling the door. Gathering her courage, she waded in hip deep with a microphone, and began to set things right.
