This week Lex McDonald, writer of the epic World War Two action graphic novel Assault on Fortress Doom joins the Awesome Comics Podcast crew to talk about the book and the long journey of bringing the epic wartime adventure to life.
As always there is also plenty of awesome books and webcomics that get talked about, including talk about iPad’s potential for becoming an art tool, a little bit of Punisher/Daredevil talk, Wookie love and there’s lots of great comic events you should seek out!
Not only that, but Tony Esmond talks about strange snake dreams he’s been having, Dan Butcher gives his response to an indecent proposal and Vince Hunt sniffles his way through the show pathetically after a bout of manflu and tries to get sympathy (spoiler: he doesn’t succeed).
