    How is it that the comics of Belgium and France do the American Western Comic so well? 


    This is one of the best drawn comics you'll read all year. Well worth investigating. Get a pen and paper out for all the recommendations that come thick and fast!

    Episode 107 - Micronauts issue #1 with Dave Robertson.

    This week Tony is joined by Dave Robertson to talk about the first issue of a comic that most certainly is not Star Wars but grew over time into a pretty decent run in its own right!


    The conversation covers storytelling styles and the marvellous art of Michael Golden and Josef Rubenstein.


    One day, maybe, we'll actually get a reprint!


    You can find Dave here on Twitter and buy his own comics right here.


    Many thanks for listening.

Tony is a great if not perfect blend of personality and comic knowledge (and ability to read a vast amount of them). If you’re looking for solid and pure comic book review this is where to go. The comic talk is hotter than the vindaloo I’m currently eating (R.I.P my intestines), that hits you faster than the reboot of your casual friend’s favourite comic, and is more informed than what the typical Twitter user thinks they are on everything. I am actively licking door nobs coughing on people and coughing on people to ensure the pandemic and therefore NeverIronAnything podcast continues.

Episode 6

Spoiled by crude and childish, meant to shock so called adverts, which detracted from an otherwise interesting and informative episode

ImnotDaredevil ,

Keep ‘em coming..

Awesome idea to dig deeper into some of the best comic runs known to comicdom. It’s all crammed into a hour ‘ish
