Joined by one of the best indie printers in the biz, Rich Hardiman from Comic Printing UK, the gang talk about the trials and tribulations of small press printing and things people should know about or be aware of when prepping their books for press. There’s info, listener questions, great comics discussed, tales of someone’s interaction with a comic seller named Tibor, a tense Action Dan question and even more.
It’s another show not to be missed from Dan Butcher, Tony Esmond and Vince Hunt – especially if you’re thinking about getting your comics printed.
Great stuff to check out this week: Rich from Comic Printing UK, Comic Printing UK, The Pull List, Rachel Rising, Dan White’s Cindy and Biscuit, Robin William Scott’s Every Life I Ever Lived and Roger Langridge’s brilliant silent comic The Iron Duchess
