It’s been a fantastic year for the world of small press comics, and what would the last Awesome Comics Podcast of the year be if there wasn’t a talk about some of the highlights of the year that was 2015?

There are plenty of brilliant books that get a shout out from the boys, talk about animators moving into the comic book medium, a couple of highlight clips get played to the amusement of all and the hosts let off some steam dropping some words of wisdom/putting the world to rights.

Also. there’s more revealed about how the show came to be, Tony Esmond reveals his love of rude words on calculators, Vince Hunt talks about his respect cows and Dan Butcher drops a well timed comedy bomb.

Mentioned this episode are…
