As Tony Esmond couldn’t make it this week (he’s busy helping Santa’s elves, apparently), it’s just Vince Hunt and Dan Butcher holding the fort on this week’s Amazing Comics Podcast, and they spend it cooking up a storm with lots of comic book creating waffle.
Together, they answer some brilliant questions from ACP listeners and try to give the best advice and info they can from their experience self publishing comics as well as talk of influences and more. There’s also a little bit of movie talk as the hosts go off on tangents, Dan reveals his earliest memories of Rambo, Vince rambles more than usual and everyone discovers what success truly smells like. It’s a veritable crimbo cracker of awesome, so check it out now!
