The Cabinet of Dr. ComicCast

October 28, 2008

Sick of spending your Halloween running from exploding bonfires after some little scumbag throws a petrol soaked tire into it? Us too! So why not spend your Halloween with the Comic Cast! On this weeks frightening show we dicuss Edward Gorey’s Dracula: A Toy Theatre, Ghost World: Special Edition, Joann Sfar’s Vampire Loves and  Johns/Donner/Powell’s Superman: Escape from Bizarro World. Also thrown into the cauldron are home grown work including Luke F Comics issue 1, Knocked up Nikki issue 2,  Redemptions fire! Preview Issue, The Linguistic Goat and Frankenstein – the new graphic novel from Classical Comics with art by Declan Shalvey (Interview in two weeks). And if all that weren’t enough, we also attempt a live phone interview with the distributor of a religious comic Craig found on the street and we play the first entry in our theme tune competition. Expect nothing but terror.

24hr Comic Day: A Comic Cast Special

October 18, 2008

24 comic book pages in 24 hours? Are they mad? Clearly the answer is yes. The Comic Cast dropped in on Dublin’s 24 Hour Comics participants in the Central Hotel last Saturday to see how they were getting on. Mini interviews with Cliodhna Lyons, Kyle Rogers, Luke F, Adam Murray, Ronan Kennedy, Will Kirkby, Paddy Lynch and Katie Blackwood. They’re bonkers. Seriously.

BusyBee: An Interview with BrenB

October 13, 2008

This week we meet up with Dublin illustrator and cartoonist BrenB to talk about his work editing the comic anthology Toenail Clippings (1998-2002), his involvement with Gerry Hunts comic Streets of Dublin, his strips for The Dubliner and The Phoenix and his reimagining of the iconic Darth Vader helmet in The Vader Project exhibition. We also discuss his favourite board game at length – a ComicCast exclusive we think you’ll find. Have fun.
