ICE CAST LIVE probes the team behind the new First Men on Mars project

ICE CAST LIVE, the comics-focused podcast produced by publisher and comic event showrunner Shane Chebsey, returns with an all-new interview with First Men on Mars writer and publisher Paul L. Mathews, and artist and series designer Gary Erskine.

As we previously reported, new independent British publisher E.M.PRESS Publications launched its Kickstarter for First Men on Mars earlier this month, a stunning-looking, intriguing-sounding steampunk mini-series, which features a terrific line up of talent, including Gary Erskine, Simon Fraser, Mike Collins, Paul McCaffrey, with Yel Zamor, John-Paul Bove and Annie Parkhouse.

But that’s just one new show from Shane, aided by Sam Morgan, who both had a great time last weekend at Meanwhile… in Coventry, and have already released some other items tying in with the show, as part of the Season Two debut for the podcast.

Tune in to ICE CAST LIVE here on YouTube, and check out the show’s impressive archive of interviews, which includes chats with Charlie Adlard, John McCrea, Declan Shalvey, and many, many others!
