Bus stop: An interview with Paddy Lynch

May 18, 2010

This week the Comic Cast was delighted to converse with Dublin cartoonist, illustrator and graphic designer Paddy Lynch. Paddy’s comics include the recently released Last Bus issue 2, In the Aquarium, Stop Gap and You Can Never Return. Paddy, along with Katie Blackwood and Philip Barrett, is also one of the minds behind Edition Book Arts –  a group which fosters interaction in and around the book arts, comic and fanzine communities in Ireland. He has illustrated covers for Le Cool magazine and his posters for music gigs are always worth stealing from shops for your bedroom. Enjoy.

The Ghost of Christmas Cast

December 23, 2008


As Slade once said, “It’s Chrisssstmaassssss!” and here at the Comic Cast we’ve pulled out the big guns for our seminal-festive show if by ‘seminal-festive show’ you mean ‘pretty much the exact same show as usual’. Under the Christmas tree this week are Geoff Johns’ Green Lantern: Secret Origin, Thomas Ott’s The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8, Grant Morrisons’ Batman RIP, Joe Matts’ Spent, Kevin Huizenga’s Curses and Comic Book Tattoo: Tales Inspired by Tori Amos. Not to mention reviews of a whole sleigh-full of Irish comics including Andy Winters and Declan Shalvey’s Tim Skinner Total Scumbag, Philip Barrett’s MATTER no. 7 Weirdface, Katie Blackwood’s The Elephant & The Top Hat, Patrick Lynch’s In the Aquarium, Stephen Coffey and Ger Hankey’s Celtic Knights issue 1, the Free Irish Comic Day Anthology and Stephen Coffey and Barry McGowan’s Rosemary Herbb: the return. Stir that all up with some thoughts on this years Dublin Comic Con and a letter sent to us from an 8yr old girl and you’ll get this years Comic Cast Christmas Pudding. Lovely.
