Of Apes and Men

September 30, 2008

Paul Hornschemeier

On this weeks show we ask is Marvel Apes really the missing link? Can the cops in Gotham Central really look after the city better than you know who? How many cat observations can Jeffrey Brown make in Cat Getting Out of a Bag and Other Observations? Can anyone really pronouce Let Us Be Perfectly Clear creator Paul Hornschemeiers name?  Will Humprey Bogart be in Marvel Noir? Why do we keep saying the new superhero sitcom No Heroics is on BBC3 when it’s on ITV? And how can we save the Irish comics scene from an ugly death? Download now and breath a sigh of relief as we answer all these questions and more.

An interview with Cliodhna Lyons

September 16, 2008

This week sees the launch of a fantastic new comic book anthology ‘Sorry I can’t take your call right now I’m off saving the world’ featuring work by 30 different artists from Ireland, the UK, Germany and the United States. The Comic Cast ventured down to Kilkenny to talk to illustrator and printmaker Cliodhna Lyons who produced the book in memory of her Dad Conor Lyons who worked with GOAL in post-tsunami Sri Lanka. On the show we talk about the anthologys production, Cliodhna’s experiences at small/alternative comic shows across the globe and the annual 24hr Comic Event in Dublin which she runs. Enjoy.

The Dublin launch of the anthology takes place THIS Sunday 21st Sept from 9pm in The Stags Head.

To Hell and Back

September 2, 2008

Boil the kettle and crank up the speakers cause this weeks Comic Cast is audio dynamite. We brave the Irish comic-book shelves again to discuss home-bred comics including Greg O’Briens Ghost of a Doubt issue 1, Damien Flood’s Knocked Up Nikki issue 1 and John Cashin’s Still Born issue 3. We talk about Geoff Johns and Richard Donner’s Superman: Last Son in 3D, Japanese cartoonist Tori Miki’s Anywhere But Here, the rather awesome Spiderman Loves Mary-Jane comic, Chris Claremont’s 1980’s series Kitty Pryde and Wolverine and the works of Norwegian cartoonist Jason. And if that weren’t enough, we also squeeze in our thoughts on two Mike Mignola screen outings – HellBoy II: The Golden Army (BIG screen) and the pilot episode of The Amazing Screw-On Head (small screen). Beautiful.
