Episode 28: Oldham Comic Con & Mantic Games Hellboy Board Game

LICAF-Podcast-28-Oldham-1200

We took a trip out to Oldham to the Oldham Comic Con 2018 held on Saturday 12th May. We had a great time and it really was a well ran event. We grabbed a load of interviews which you can hear on the show. These include chats with Lee Overton & Pete Davis, John Slater & Mike West, Tazio Battin, Yasmin Sheikh, Sam Chapman, Dan Whitehead and Nigel from Mayamada. We also look at the new free comic Jack and Lucy by Rachael Smith and Jacob Phillips which looks at two troubled teens trying to figure out their personal problems.

Mike also has a treat for us this episode and chats to Rob Burman from Mantic Games. Mantic has created a board game based on the Hellboy comics and its currently on kickstarter. Mike talks to Rob about the kickstarter, the game itself and of course Hellboy. Pete continues the Kirby profile, this time between the years 1966 and 1970 where Kirby leaves Marvel for DC.

We shout out all the news from the festival too.
