In this podcast Vince Hunt, Dan Butcher and Tony Esmond let loose and talk comics and more. The two main topics of conversation this year are the epic event that was the release of 2000AD Prog 2000 and a discussion on Dan Butchers article, “Five things I don’t want to see in your indie superhero comics“.
It’s a fun fuelled discussion that digresses in the best kind of ways. There’s talk about essential reading for writers, 80s movies, hints of plans to come for the show and plenty of silly NSFW humour (stay tuned for some revealing out takes too). Don’t miss it!
Mentioned in this episode are: Comic Book Fever, Understanding Comics, Save the Cat, Snarl, Insane Comics, 2000AD, Prog 2000, 40 Years of 2000AD Festival, Five things I don’t want to see in your indie superhero comics, Santa Claus vs the Nazis, The Axeman Cometh, A Place to Hang Your Cape Calendar, Madius Comics, Monologue
