Awesome Comics Podcast Episode 15: Comics Editor and Writer John Freeman

Awesome Comics Podcast Episode 15

It’s a real history lesson this week as John Freeman of downthetubes, Crucible, ROK Comics and many more joins Vince Hunt, Dan Butcher and Tony Esmond to talk about all things comics. There’s talk about the latest webcomic site Tapastic and its benefits for comic book creators, John’s own creations over the years and everyone has a reminiscing session about the books they had access to and read when they were kids. If you’re in the mood for some history about the UK comic scene then this is the episode for you. Also there’s some proper talk about the Lakes International Comics Festival, Vince attempts to say the name Alan Moore in the sexiest way possible, Tony tells us whether he is allowed out of the country for New York Comic Con (he was) and Dan reveals he’s been watching more violent 1980s action films.

It’s an episode which is also a time paradox by itself – so get ready for timey wimey nonsense galore!

PLUS don’t miss their competition where you can win goodies signed by Alan Moore himself! Listen now and find out more!
