Vince is the Creator of The Red Mask from Mars and Tony has reviewed comics for Down The Tubes and Never Iron Anything. Along with the third host of the podcast Dan Butcher and artist Nick Prolix they have created the Awesome Comic, an anthology of stories. Issue one is out now. The boys discuss how the podcast came to be as well as the creation of the comic and the ideas behind it. We also review the comic and give our thoughts on it.
We also review the awesome Kill or Be Killed Volume Three and Artist Angst, a series of short funny stories about creating comics, created by Kev Brett. We talk about the oncoming comic con Macc Pow run by Marc Jackson which we will be attending. The event will be held in Macclesfield on June 23rd 2018.
