New Awesome Comics Podcast probes “Afterlife” creator and publisher Jon Lock

Awesome Comics Podcast Episode 6  - Jon Lock

Episode 6 of the new UK small press centric Awesome Comics Podcast is coming your way today. Hosted by Vince Hunt (creator of Red Mask From Mars), Dan Butcher (Vanguard) Butcher and our very own reviewer chap Tony Esmond, this episode has as its guest indie creator Jon Lock.

Not only is Jon the writer of the hugely successful comic series Afterlife Inc., he is also co-founder of Big Punch Studios. We hear the ‘dark’ origins of this writer and his campaign for a comics victory worldwide.

The boys also review a range of new small press comics and web comics, name a couple of terrible movies, talk about the best way to self-abuse if you are in a diving bell and how Tony wished everyone on the show went on holiday together.

Also featured is a great new competition to win a pair of tickets to the upcoming Nottingham Comic Convention and a list of upcoming small press signings and events.
