Comic Cast Mix Tape #1

April 7, 2009


Here at the Comic Cast we have two great loves. Comics and music. And whiskey. Ok, three great loves. So we thought how can we combine these loves together in one monstrous podcast. The answer?  A mixtape where every single track has to relate to comics! It wasn’t easy. More often than not we just ended up playing Seal’s ‘Kiss from a rose’ on repeat but there’s no keeping us down when you introduce our third great love . . . And so here it is, for your listening delight, Comic Cast Mix Tape #1!
