Of course you realise, this means war . . .


The Comic Cast loves the smell of napalm in the morning. That and comics. Accordingly we’ve been court-marshalled to review a good deal of war comics this week, wheter they be battles on the field or battles of the heart, including Megan Kelso’s The Squirrel Mother , Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man: Torment!, Jason Aaron & Cameron Stewart’s The Other Side,  Damon Lindelof’s Ultimate Hulk Vs Wolverine, Rick Veitch & Gary Erskine’s ARMY@LOVE and Mark Millar’s Fantastic Four: Worlds Greatest. We also blow the bugle on the homefront with Gerry Hunt’s EASTER 1916: Blood upon The Rose, Howard Chaykin & Stephen Thompsons Die Hard Year 1 and the 24 Hour Comics ’09 Anthology. Not to mention a spoiler-free review of Pixar’s UP. The horror . . . the horror . . .

    There will be copies of the 24 anthology for sale at Thought Bubble in Leeds and around some of the Dublin shops next month but we’re also going to make it a free pdf people can download via the website for a limited time – it will be up Thursday.

  2. Ztoical Says:

    the 24 anthology can now be downloaded via http://www.irish24hourcomics.com for a limited time

  3. Stephen Mooney Says:

    Another winner lads, keep em coming. Were you guys at offset? Kept an eye out but didn’t see either of ye.

  4. thecomiccast Says:

    Cheers Moondog. Unfortunately we didn’t get to make Offset. Our ‘regular’ jobs and commitments frequently stand in the way of us making such events but we’ll be trying harder in future. How was it?

    (For those wondering what our regular jobs are – Craig is a cobbler and I’m a cabaret singer.)
