Top 10 Commentary Podcast #1 by Zander Cannon

One of the great things about DVDs when they started to come out was the commentary track. How amazing, I thought; by adding one more audio track to the disk (a relatively small addition), you could add an incredible amount of behind-the-scenes information to the movie. If you were buying a movie you had watched a million times, you were now getting to virtually sit down with the director and listen to his or her recollections of the process of making the movie, and in doing so, see each scene with fresh eyes.

Well, why not comics? With the ease with which we can put audio into people's hands via the internet, it's a very simple matter to record a commentary for a comic book. The people who want to listen to it are self-selecting; they presumably all have the comic already, so all that is needed is to sit in front of a microphone and chitchat for a while.

This is the commentary podcast for Top 10 Season 2 #1, written by Zander Cannon and drawn by Gene Ha. It clocks in at almost 52 minutes, so put aside some time, curl up with the issue, and enjoy!
