Catwoman (1999) with Blair Farrell

What makes someone a villain? And once you get that label in people’s head what can happen to get that label removed or switched? It’s tough. You’ve got to change minds and deal with people who will never forget your past no matter how much good you do now and will always treat you like…

Ravage with Eli Powell

What is it that makes a comic connect with an audience? Is it the writing? The art? The characters? Nope, but also yes….? It’s the passion behind it. And that passion certainly comes across in everything else but you can have the best writer and artist in the world using the most popular characters and…

North and South with Insane Ian

Comics can come from some weird places. Which most of the time is a shot at the writer or artist and the fact that they’re a weirdo. But sometimes is just a basic factual statement. You know, like when a nation makes a comic about a war they had no part in just because. But…

Amongst the Stars with Elyse Russell

In the cold dark reaches of space nobody can hear you scream. Or something like that. Look, I’ve never been to space so I can’t know for sure. But I know that if I went to space I’d be lonely without my Kayleigh and that would suck so I’m not sure if I want to…

Pocus Hocus #5 with Allen Dunford

Pocus is still in Hell. He’s got Emily. He’s got Horrus. He’s got problems. And what can he do about it? I have no idea, and to be perfectly honest I’m not sure that Allen Dunford does either. But it’s his job (along with Will Radford who sadly couldn’t be in this episode) to make…

What are the elements of a good Batman game? Cool villains? Great side characters? Actually doing a bit of detectiving maybe? Well listen in as Adam Williamson comes back on the show to talk about Batman Gotham City Racers, a game that basically none of those things and yet still exists. Learn such things as:…

Sensory Life on the Spectrum with Bex Ollerton

One of the best things about comics, especially lately, is the amount of creator diversity we’ve been able to get. So it warms my heart when we can get a collection bringing together a bunch of creators that don’t normally have a chance to get together for this specific reason. And what is that reason?…

M.U.S.C.L.E. with Doc Issues (Capes on the Couch)

Sometimes things get missed. Like not realizing that a game is based on a comic. Or missing an NES game because you didn’t realize that a game was based on a comic. I know it’s a shock that I could miss something. Or an entire country can miss out on a wonderful franchise that you’d…

The Atonement Bell (Revisited) with Tyler Ruff

Sometimes we have to revisit some things. A blast from the past if you will. There can be so many reasons for this. Maybe there’s unfinished business. Maybe it’s just a fun trip down memory lane. Or maybe there’s something more sinister going on than you even want to think about. Or it could just…

Yu-Gi-Oh Forbidden Memories and Dark Duel Stories with Luke Herr

Yu-Gi-Oh is something I never really got into growing up. Or now for that matter since I’ve gotten into some things now that I should have gotten into when I was younger. Although I was kind of around it since I was into Pokemon and Magic: the Gathering so it’s not a totally 100% new…
