lost and found

Ahoy Comic Casters! Climb onboard this weeks sea worthy show for reviews of Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s A Drifting Life, Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 3: Century: 1910, Barbara Randall Kesel’s Legends of the Dark Crystal Volume 1: The Garthim Wars, Mike Carey’s Unwritten #1, Guy Delisle’s Burma Chronicles and Joseph Larkin’s Arcade of Cruelty. Then we’ll be stearing the ship back to Ireland for some reviews of two brand new Irish comics – Gar Shanley and Salvo’s Windell Classics Compendium and Paul Maxell’s A Murdering Spree and then it’s off to Animation Island to get the low down on Coraline 3D and also Studio AKA’s adaptation of Oliver Jeffers children’s book Lost and Found on DVD. And finally we pick out the jewels of the (News) Treasure Chest to talk about the latest in casting of Kenneth Branagh’s Thor and Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet comic and we promise no more nautical references from here on in! Yar. ahem.

Guff: An interview with Jeffrey Lewis

May 12, 2009


The last time the Comic Cast did acid we went insane . . . and interviewed anti-folk singer/songwriter and comic book artist Jeffrey Lewis! Lewis has several great albums under his belt  including City & Eastern Songs with his brother Jack, 12 Crass Songs – a collection of songs by the anarchist punk band Crass, reworked by Jeffrey, not to mention his brand new album EM ARE I.  His comic book series Fuff is currently on it’s seventh issue. We met up with Jeffrey before his gig in Dublin to talk about his comics, his thesis on Watchmen and doing live music videos on stage. Enjoy!

(Since this interview is a bit shorter than usual, we also review X-Men Origins: Wolverine and dish out some bang-up-to-date Irish comics news)
