Episode 71 - Interaction at Comic Conventions!

What is a comic convention without interaction? Whether its with your audience or with your favourite creator, how those moments go can effect your overall experience of a convention. And so the Awesome Comics gang discuss the high, lows and awkward moments of their con experiences, read out listener messages and some very interesting poll results and an oddly high number of toilet stories. Theres also some talk about Nottingham Comic Con, the trio's opinions on Doctor Strange and theres another Action Dan question to test Mr Butchers action film knowledge. Plus as an extra treat is a small bit of audio from NYCC with Tony and Vera Greenstreet. Basically, theres tons in this episode so check it out and enjoy!

Episode 70 - ARGH! Horror Comics!

It's that time of year when the Awesome Pod ghouls talk about the world of horror comics. Yes, its the second ACP Halloween Special! Vince and Dan talk terror and horror storytelling pros and cons, and as Tony couldn't make it this week Shaun Dobie (Descending Outlands) steps in and the trio discuss scary books, the classic horror monsters, when horror goes too far and also spins yet more chat based on this weeks spooktacular listener polls. It's classic comics chat with an added twist and plenty of laughs. Theres also another Action Dan question, talk of 'genre' books and Tony is missed (but still makes an appearance... kind of).

Theres talk of books that have had legal challenges due to sexual content, Robert Crumb, sexualised variant covers, results of this weeks listener polls, LOADS more and also the first listener question gets put in for our 80s action movie quiz 'Action Dan'.
