Entering Comic Cast Country

March 15, 2011

We can’t make any promises to reverse the banking crisis but what we CAN promise is a podcast full of bickering, insults and reviews of Scenes from an Impending Marriage by Adrian Tomine, The Wild Kingdom by Kevin Huizenga, Slaughterman’s Creed by Cy Dethan/Stephen Downey, Amazing Spiderman #655 by Dan Slott/Marcos Martin. In Irish comics we review The League of Volunteers #1 by Robert Curley/Barry Keegan and The Novak Seven by Archie Templar.  We also talk to illustrator Chris Judge about his debut picture book for kids –  The Lonely Beast. On the news front we chat about the recent kerfuffle on Broadway over Spiderman: Turn off the Dark, why Shane Black directing Iron Man 3 is a good thing and how the Comic Cast is about to break America! Eat that for breakfast, suckas!

Putto: an interview with James Stafford

March 1, 2011

This week we talk to Welsh comics scribe James Stafford about his debut foray into webcomics with The Sorrowful Putto of Prague, drawn by Phillipines artist AJ Bernardo. We discuss the perils and triumphs of writing comics that are being drawn by someone else, the truly international collaboration that only the internet could allow and just exactly what is the difference between a putto and a cherub!? Enjoy.
