It’s my swine flu and I’ll cry if I want to

kells_pigs

Fear prevails over the Comic Cast this week as we broadcast from our emergency bunker studio. Thankfully it’s well supplied with cans of peas and comics enabling us to eat and also to review NOZONE X’s Forecast, Seth’s George Sprott: (1894-1975), John Stanley’s Melvin Monster volume 1, Adrian Tomine’s 32 Stories (special edition box set) and Garth Ennis’ Preacher. Not to mention a duo of new Irish comics in the form of Luke F’s Waiting Room and Redshift – a new comics anthology by teenagers from Cork. We also give you the low down on the DVD release of The Secret of Kells and ask an 8yr old for her opinion on the film. We’ll also be keeping contact with the outside world for the latest on two epidemics sweeping the globe – firstly we talk to genuine recent swine flu victim and creator of web comic Looseville, Alan Maloney on his new print comic venture The Abyss and secondly we talk zombies with Declan Shalvey, the artist on Boom Studios new 28 Days Later comic. So put on your gas mask cause this one’s gonna be apocalyptic!
