We do treat you all so well as this episode we have two interviews. First we have a chat with Leonard Sultana from the website An Englishman in San Diego. We discuss his love of comics, the future of DC movies, the San Diego Comic Con and the UK con scene. We also have a chat with Chris Butcher and Andrew Butcher about the Toronto Comic Con and scene over there. We recorded this in October 2017 just before the LICAF at a joyful pub so ignore the background noise.
We talk about two new kick starters, one from The Etherington Brothers and the other Nick Prolix. We also shout out about the first lot of announced guests to the 2018 Lakes International Comic Art Festival… and its good. Keep an eye out too for a brand new show from us… called My Neighbour, it will be a monthly Ghibli based review show.
Mike talks about how his comic tastes have changed and how he’s reading more. In particular he looks at Monstrous. Pete continues with part 5 of Jack Kirby’s life looking at the years 1955 to 1958. A short time frame but a very important one in Jacks career. We close the show with some music from a local band based in Lancaster called Promethium. Some would say you need to bow to the god of metal but I say just rock. The track’s called Shell Shock from their new album Faces of War.
This episode features a great chat with the band Blues Harvest who will be playing at the festival this year. We talk to Nick, Andy and Jess and discuss Nicks comic work, Andy’s Pop Up Puppet Cinema, what the band is all about and we find out which band member knows the most about Star Wars. We also play the track entitled Obi Wan Kenobi.
We review Gill Hatchers The Beginners Guide to Being Outside and the football book The Rise of the Invincibles by Michael Barret. We also look at the film Sharknado 5… as its so so bad.
Mike gives us a League of Extraordinary Gentleman 101 and Pete has a general ramble on his work and writing a comic.
