Episode 14- Pre Festival 2017 Ramble

Welcome to the Comic Art Festival Podcast

A different episode today as Nikki & Ian plus contributors Pete Taylor, Mike Williams and Chris Medcalf get together for a group discussion to talk about our favourite comics (see the podcast art for this show), drink a little festival ale and discuss what we are getting up to during the festival. Chris also discusses his role within the Clock Tower during the weekend and Pete talks about how he plans to run a table at comic events.

We review The Corbyn Comic book, Graphic Science by Darryl Cunningham and Myfanwy Tristram’s Comic about going to last years festival. We also look at the brand new Comic Art Festival App and talk about our tour of the art in the windows of Kendal. Recorded & edited on Saturday 7th October so sadly not all windows were put up.

Listen to hear how you can get free comics whilst at the event and take part in the #BeerShaman art competition.
