2D Comics Festival Special

Play

We’re just back from this year’s 2D Comics Festival in Derry, and what a weekend it was. We had our own panel, which hopefully we’ll be able to bring you as an episode in the not too distant future, and on Saturday night we had a chat with Chris Ryall of IDW Publishing, Declan Shalvey of Thunderbolts & Dark Avengers fame and Stephen Mooney, who’s on the brink of releasing his creator owned book Half Past Danger.

Please excuse the sound being a bit all over the place – the guys were a tad… merry, shall we say, and sometimes the mics weren’t directed right at their face-holes.

Special Episode – Tintin Movie Review

This Friday sees the release of Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s big screen incarnation of Tintin, one of the most iconic non-superhero characters in comics.

The three of us went to see it this morning, check out the show for our thoughts!

Oh, and don’t forget we’re on iTunes too. Subscribe there and save yourself from checking here! And leave us a nice review too…

Also, check out Tintin stuff on Amazon here. Remember if you buy it via our link we get a wee kick back. Might make you feel better about us doing this for nothing…

Episode 32 – Everyone’s A Critic!

Play
A few weeks ago Ron was on a panel at the 2D Festival in Derry. Alongside him were the lovely Emma Vieceli, the erudite Gary Erskine, the winsome Leigh Gallagher and the Falstaff-ian Mark Kardwell. It was pretty funny, and well worth a listen. The subject was the internet, namely blogs, Twitter and suchlike, and how these have changed the industry.

 

Thanks to Wez Nolan for getting the audio to us – it’s most appreciated.

Look, I know we’re running behind here, but bear with us… 
A few weeks ago this post appeared on Forbidden Planet’s blog listing what they thought were the Top 50 comics/graphic novels for this shopping season. During the (imminent) Episode 18, we did a quick run-down of the list to let you know what we thought of them.
