In this episode we speak to sisters Scarlett and Sophie Rickard who have created their own publishing company called Gluepot Books. So far they have released the fun Mann’s Best Friend which was in our top 10 books of 2017 but have plans for the future with another book due this year. In the interview they discuss how they work together, the process of creating a book to printing it and how it was to actually have people read and review their book.
We review Our Town by Tim Bird, Wired Up Wrong by Rachael Smith (who will be on the show later this year) plus two comics from the Comichaus app. White Noir from Matt Garvey & Divevez and The Red Mask from Mars by Vince Hunt.
We also announce a project that we intend to tackle this year… the creation of our very own comic. Ian will be writing and Nikki will be the artist. Follow our journey from by standers to hopeful publishers as we document our journey through 2018 on this podcast.
Mike starts a series of segments about comics created from TV shows. This episode he looks at Battlestar Galactica and the host of comics that have spawned from the older and more recent TV series. Pete interviews his friend and comic collaborator Mark Hughes who he has worked with on Copperopolis. They discuss Marks process of drawing comics and what he enjoys about creating comics. They also talk about who stands out for him as great artists plus a little bit about where they are up to on Copperopolis.
