The Awesome Comics Podcast – Under The Influence(s)

Awesome Comic Podcast Episode 12 - Influences

GAME TIME! Can you match the influences to the hosts? Listen to the Awesome Comic Podcast to find the answers

This week, the Awesome Comics Podcast team Dan Butcher, Vince Hunt and Tony Esmond are flying solo. As part of their semi regular themed episodes they are covering the tricky subject of comic influences. The guys name their three favourite influences and a load of listeners pipe in with their choices too.

We also get the usual brand of madness, Dan offers a cuddle to listeners, Vince has decided to give the train a try and Tony references Chakka Demus and Pliers.

Awesome Comics Podcast: Under the Influence(s)Six small press books get reviewed, there’s a transatlantic flavour to the events calendar and Tony works through his convention frustrations.

There’s also a competition in the episode to win Alan Moore signed goodies that promote the launch of the excellent Electricomics digital comics platform. PS – The answer may involve drinking….

So if like Chakka Demus and Pliers you are suitably teased pop on over to the site and have a Not Safe For Work listen.
