Trick or Treat or Comic Book Podcast?

October 19, 2010

About this time of year Linus likes to sit in a pumpkin patch waiting for the arrival of The Great Pumpkin. Well we can’t all spend October sitting around in pumpkin patches, can we? So we’ve decided to stay snug in doors and review comics. And those comics are Jen Wang’s Koko Be Good, Andi Watson’s Breafast After Noon, Tim Beedle/Armand Villavert Jr.’s Muppet Robin Hood, Roger Langridge/Amy Mebberson’s Muppet Family Reunion and new Irish comic Curse of Cromwell: The Seige by Dermot Poyntz and Lee Grace. Instead of having fireworks thrown at us we also talk about the new Iron Man anime,  Genndy Tartakovsky’s latest animated series Sym-Bionic Titan and all the latest casting in all the latest superhero movies. Did I mention we have all the freshest news from the Irish comics scene? Are you sure? I think I mentioned it. Happy listening!

When we’re not reading comics, we’re playing video games. And when we’re not perpetuating the nerd stereotype we’re recording a mixtape of our favourite video game music! And who better to join us than fellow video game devotee – Vinny of Adebisi Shank and The Vinny Club! Controllers at the ready!

(Get tickets for the Adebisi gig in the Button Factory on the 20th November here.  Yahhh!)

Olá! An interview with Pablo Mayer

October 5, 2010

This week we are delighted to talk to Pablo Mayer – a Brazilian comic book artist living in Dublin to learn english.  Pablo’s hilarious comic strip ‘Brabos Comics’ is published daily in A Notícia newspaper, he has illustrated the graphic novel ‘The House Next Door” with Diogo Cesar and he’s one of the developers of the Brazilian version of MAD magazine. Most recently he was one of 50 artists chosen to give his own take on the characters of Mauricio de Sousa (arguably Brazils most famous cartoonist) in a new anthology. His work has also be published by Top Shelf Online.  As mentioned, he’s here to learn english so this show is quite short but we’ve also included a text version of the interview which you can read by clicking here.  Enjoy.
