Comics! Literary analysis! #Butts. All these things and more, except we're on hiatus right now.

    Episode 75 - Thought Bubble 2017

    Episode 75 - Thought Bubble 2017

    We're (most of us) back from a slight hiatus because it's NERD PROM again and we're at Thought Bubble 2017 in disconcertingly sunny Leeds. With special guests (probably) and new comics (yes) and ellipses (someone stop me)!

    Podcast 74 - Southern Gothic

    Podcast 74 - Southern Gothic

    Southern gothic persists as a genre in all other mediums, so why is that deliciously swampy style so under-represented in comics? An investigation brought to you by big words, a fetish for Spanish moss, and that half-glimpsed face at the window of the ol' plantation house.

    Podcast 73 - Spinoffs and Franchises

    Podcast 73 - Spinoffs and Franchises

    Spin-off! Is there any word more thrilling to the soul and/or corporate wallet?

    This week we read a bucket of franchise-extension comics. From flaccid extrusions of long-spent IP, to comics an actual person might actually want to read, we talk about whether spin-off comics can be any good (yes), how it all works (it's complicated), and which ones are just utter, utter shite (surprisingly: not Pokémon).

    Find out more about the "beautiful teat filled with dollars".

    Podcast 72 - Gods

    Podcast 72 - Gods

    Don't call it a GodCast.

    Actually don't, that sounded far better in my head. We're talking gods and mythology in comics, with drive-by reviewing of Hamish Steele's Pantheon, a revisit of The Wicked and the Divine, and a bunch of other stuff along the way because we're good to ya.

    Benevolent, even.

    Podcast 71 - More Comics By Women

    Podcast 71 - More Comics By Women

    Y'know that shade over half the population who make about ten percent of Big Two comics, probably about half of the rest, and whose work gets about five percent of the attention? Yeah, those folks: women?

    You remember women, right - the ones who don't get to say "I done made a comic" without some internet dickdribble making death threats.

    In the spirit of celebrating great work (and of not being that guy), this week we're spotlighting a bunch of comics with female creators.

    Episode 70 - Big Weird Sci Fi

    Episode 70 - Big Weird Sci Fi

    Back, back again to the stranger edges of sci fi. We ponder whether sci fi has preemptively shifted to reflect our garbage fire times, or whether our reading habits have just taken a turn for the cynical.

    Because of the garbage fires.

SUPERB

A true masterpiece. A witty and sharp conversation between one woman and two men. The peek of what we are all deserving of. I hope you're ready to hate all your other podcasts. This one is fuelled by Sherry and is a bit like a rude episode of Frasier except it isn't about a man and a dog it is about comics.

Better than we deserve

A fine podcast brought to you by a man, a woman and a wine bottle with a face.
