Daily strip genius behind NHOJ, John Cullen, joins Vince Hunt, Dan Butcher and Tony Esmond on the latest Awesome Comics Podcast to talk about the exhilarating and terrifying adventure of creating daily comics, his plans for future collections and his now infamous interaction with some titans in the meme game. There’s chat about parody artwork involving big name IPs, more great books and webcomics are brought into the spotlight (including some daily epic recommendations), a few Kickstarters you need to check out and the usual comic hilarity ensues as Dan drops some more comedy cursing, Vince defends himself over Big Trouble in Little China (which he loves, by the way) and Tony tells us more about his Doctor Screw collection…
