A Chat with Cinebook – Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast probes European comics publisher

Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast Episode 27 – Cinebook with Jerome Saincantin

In the latest episode of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast, the team chat to Jerome Saincantin about his role as a translator for Cinebook.

Cinebook, whose titles we’ve often featured on downthetubes, are publishers of best selling European books in the English language. Their titles include Valerian, Lucky Luke, Thorgal and XIII – to name but a few. Jerome talks about the success of comics in Europe and which comics in particular we should be enjoying.

Ian and Nikki also chat to Joel Meadows about Portsmouth Comic Con which is being held this weekend (5th – 6th of May 2018).

Reviewed this time around are the Cinebook comic Orbital – and there’s a spoiler free verdict on Avengers: Infinity War, too. Pete Taylor continues his look at Jack Kirby this time focusing on the early years at Marvel… 1961 to 1966, while Mike Williams talks about all of the annual geek event days around May, including Star Wars Day and Free Comic Book Day.

Plus, there’s more updates on the Festival, including the charity art auction which has just begun over on Proxibid.
