Here is our follow-up episode to last week's powder keg video blog. Comic Foundry travels outside our hot Manhattan apartment and into the depths of Brooklyn for the release party of the robot anthology 24/Seven at indie store RocketShip.

Will there be more Wizard talk? Maybe.
Will there be half naked girls (with or without heads)? Nope.
Will there be robot dancing? Definitely.


PS - Heidi over at The Beat has her own video blog on the party. Dueling Video Blogs!

What! No wizard! Hah, good video. Nice to be able to put a face to all of the amazing artists and people that contributed to the anthology 24/7

All that great indy talent and you didn't ask any of them about their work or 24/7?

That's some hard-hitting journalism right there. Wizard watch out.

You know, I didn't want to respond to this because I don't like coming off as a jerk on other people's blogs, but the previous poster is right, and you're probably going to get a lot of similar comments like it, and I'm sorry but you've earned it. You harshly criticize Wizard for, among other things, having a lead-in that had nothing to do with a story, and a cover that had nothing to do with its cover story, and then you cover the release of an anthology with a long list of talent, and all you do is beat an already tired, TIRED joke into the ground?

In another thread, someone referred to your Wizard bashing as a "cheap sales tactic." I didn't agree with him then. I didn't wholeheartedly agree with your opinions on Wizard, but I thought they were genuine. The fact that you had the balls to follow up THAT commentary with THIS is starting to convince me that maybe that guy was right about your motives.

Sorry, I'm honestly not trying to be a jerk. In a way, I genuinely hope that this was a "cheap tactic" to draw attention to the foundry, because at least that would mean you realize the impression you're giving.

Thanks, Anonymous and Michileen, for viewing and taking the time to comment. Opinions are always welcome and especially encouraged.

While I appreciate your passion, it's a bit misguided. I thought this was concept was fairly obvious but since I haven't posted this before, the distinction might be worth mentioning. Comic Foundry Magazine is home to news, interviews and other stories of varying subjects that is updated on the first of each month. The Comic Foundry blog and video blog are supplements for readers hungry for more content between issues. This blog, like most blogs, is opinion-laden and not a natural home to unbiased journalism. Is that to say we'll never run an interview on the blog? Nope, but unless it has a certain time element or was written specifically for the blog, we'll probably just save it for the next issue. Is that to say we'll run a lede that belittles someone's horrific death? Surely not.

Now, if you'd like to see interviews with some of those creators, I'd invite you watch the CF travelogue video where I ask Ivan Brandon, the editor of 24/7, a few questions about the book. Also check out the longer interviews we've already done with Rick Spears and our joint discussion with Ivan Brandon and Andy MacDonald.

I hope that helps, and I hope you'll come back for more.

Good clarification Tim. I didn't think it warranted mention initially, but I guess the dynamic between the CF blog and the Foundry itself was unclear. Opinions/fun stuff here, articles/journalism there.

I'm a big fan of the blog in that it keeps the content flowing between issues.

What magazine? That's just a web site. And it appears to be all features and dreck. Not a bit of news to be found.

Nice blog! It was all about the creators and NOT about you as the interviewer.

After watching the Wizard rant I found it more than a little bit hilarious to see the front cover for the online magazine and then this piece of tripe video.

A fantastic anthology launch party, access to several of the artists and a video camera. You come up with making them do robot impersonations.

Wizard sucks but you make them look good.

I'll be honest, I didn't see your video blog and I don't really care to. I want to know how to get my comic in your publication, or organization, or whatever the hell else you do with you time. I don't expect to get paid, you guys are clearly broke, but I could use the exposure. Some day I'm going to be on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine for my stupid comics and you could be the first to quote me on that, but you'll probably piss this away. Thanks for your time and your consideration.
