Welcome to Night Vale
For the uninitiated, Welcome to Night Vale is a podcast that is sort of like an olde timey radio show. It mostly takes place through the eyes of Cecil Baldwin, news radio host for the fictional town of Night Vale. He reads the "news" about the weird town and also engages in the action. Its kinda like a radio show cross between The X Files and Twin Peaks. And its funny. And weird.
Anyway, it got me thinking. What if there was a comic book show/super hero podcast show like this? That featured original stories that were narrated and acted out? I think if the writing was good, people might like it.
Of course, the show would have to use original characters and stories.... or hope that the big guys (Marvel and DC) never noticed them. Which they probably wouldn't anyway.
But does anyone else think that would be fun?
Still, I always like the idea of someone doing an "old time radio" podcast and am surprised there are so few out there with new material...so keep us informed if you go forward!
