The podcast about making comics — and making a living from comics! It's half shop-talk, half how-to, and half friendship. WE SQUEEZED IN THREE HALVES. It's tips and tricks and all the joys of cartooning as a pro. So pull up your drawing chair, put on some headphones, and join us while you draw!

How to turn OFF creativity
It's often hard to get creativity started, but how do you turn OFF creativity when it's distracting you from your main project??
Special Guest: Dr. Joe Sutliff Sanders
Today's show is sponsored by the Lucy Cavendish College, the fastest-growing constituent college of the University of Cambridge. We'll be talking to Dr. Joe Sutliff Sanders, an American scholar of the genre, launching the first world-class collection of graphic novels at Cambridge’s Lucy Cavendish College.
LIVE at the Charles M. Schulz Museum
To celebrate what would have been the legendary cartoonist's 100th birthday, the Charles M. Schulz Museum invited Dave and Brad to come to Santa Rosa, California, to talk about the influence Sparky still holds over today's comics artists.
Predictions for 2023
It's the first show of our SIXTH YEAR of podcasts! As we head into 2023, we're going to make some bold predictions of what the next 365 days have in store.
2022 - Nailed it or Failed it?
At the beginning of the year, Dave and Brad made some bold predictions — involving Kickstarter, Substack, NFTs, blockchain, and more! As they bid a fond farewell to 2022, they take a moment to see how many they nailed... and how many they failed.
Equal parts humor and web-based buiness advice with a dash of seasoned life experience, Dave and Brad (Dad and Brave) encourage listeners to create the best online business they can! Though it is focused on online comics, the lessons are applicable to almost any online business.
Full disclosure: Brad and Dave were talking about the joys and wonder of parenting and they did make me cry. It's unusual, especially online, to hear about having a child spoken of as a HUGE change AND a wonderful one. Thank you both for being so awesome!
An endless fount of dad jokes (and useful info)
On top of being delightful, this pod is packed with great info for comics creators—both seasoned and aspiring. I look forward to it every week.
Comic Lab is everything a podcast could hope to be: informative, entertaining, engaging, professional, absurd, and regular. Brad Guigar and the notable Dave Kellett are a font of comic knowledge and anyone who wants to seriously get their toes into the world of making comics should pay them heed. They’re also delightfully entertaining, real voices for radio, so even if you don’t give a fig about comics you’re in for an auditory treat. Give them a listen and follow their advice, they know what they’re about.
