Silverbeard the Gorilla – star of the new The Seven Sagas Of Silverbeard comic currently seeking funding on Kickstarter – has reportedly taken over the latest episode of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast.
On the latest episode, the humans talk about their day at MCM Manchester and have a few interviews with more humans – and Ian Loxam and Nikki Bates look at some of the events for this year’s Comic Art Festival, too. These include Joe Glass, Dan Whitehead (talking about his new comic Ella Upgraded, which is currently funding on Kickstarter), artist Steve Penfold, creator of Moon, and cartoonist Tom Sparke, perhaps best known as creator of Captain Fishbeard.
