Creating Comics: The ICE-CAST catches up with artist and writer Mike Collins

The Ice-Cast with Shane Chebsey Episode 11 - Mike Collins

The latest episode of The ICE-CAST, produced by comics creator and convention and comic festival organiser Shane Chebsey, features his interview with artist and writer Mike Collins.

From Transformers to Doctor Who, from the Uncanny X-Men to The Flash, from Varge Veum to Apollo and more, Mike has drawn them all.

He is also an accomplished writer and story boarder and this week’s ICE-CAST also goes behind the scenes at the BBC as Mike reveals how some of the most memorable moments from Doctor Who might never have happened if not for his willingness to put Peter Capaldi in danger on set!

(Shane’s joking, of course).

“We had a great chat going over the decades he has spent working in both comic and television,” says Shane, who has also interviewed Jimmy Broxton, Dan Cornwell and Doug Braithwaite for recent episodes of this new podcast.
