It is with heavy hearts that the 100% Super Show Approved team must say goodbye to comics podcaster, Eric Martin. The news was relayed to us by Eric’s brother Michael via Eric’s Facebook page:
“My name is Michael Martin, I am Eric’s brother. I hate to pass this information so informally but I didn’t know any other way to reach many of Eric’s friends. My brother Eric died yesterday (Nov 18th) in his sleep from a massive heart attack. I dont have any information regarding his arrangements but you can all rest assured his wishes are being carried out.”
Eric Martin was one of the more prolific podcasters in the industry, having hosted Comics Playground, DC Noise, and The Trip, as well as appearing on Geek Brunch, Comic Racks and The Geek Savants. Eric, helped to build the podcast community and will be remembered for his passionate opinions and kind heart.
Just a quick update…
We’ll be adding a few more creators to the roster in the coming weeks, including Kevin Freeman (Subculture) and Dan Capitumini (Punch Maniacs!).
The Super Show Approved group is working closely with Comic Geek Speak and we should be making an exciting announcement soon. Get ready for free stuff, people!
More to come,
A very special thanks to Adam Umak for sponsoring creator Dave Dwonch for the 2010 Super Show.
It didn’t take long for Adam to get the podcasting bug himself, and he founded The Legion of Dudes Podcast in 2005. Retooled and relaunched in 2008, the Legion of Dudes now boasts a seven-member roster of comic, movie, television, and gaming devotees.
When not podcasting or blogging, Adam teaches middle school and spends too many hours playing his Xbox 360. When he can afford it, he also collects original art and sketches featuring villains of the DC Universe. Adam and his fiancee live in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with his obscene amount of action figures. He is currently working on an original graphic novel with Big Jim Miller for PKD Media.
So yep. Uh… first post. Yep…
Okay so I don’t have much to say yet. But I will. And I’m not alone.
Back in 2008, a bunch of creators made the trek to Reading Pennsylvania for the CGS Super Show to celebrate one of the best comics podcast on the net: Comic Geek Speak. Many of us had never met, but after the weekend, we all considered each other family.
Super Show was definitely a highlight of 2008, and we want people to know about Comic Geek Speak, the Super Show, and the community of creators involved with CGS. So here we are. Who are we? Check out the creator page frequently for updates!
Spread the word: Reading, PA and the Super Show should be a destination for comic lovers.
