The Comic Cast and the Frog

When you wish upon a star your dreams come true. So you must have been wishing really hard for us to review Phillip Barrett’s My First Festival, Nick Roche’s Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers, AJ Lieberman & Riley Rossmos’ Cowboy Ninja Viking and Joe Kelly’s & J. M. Ken Nimuras’ I Kill Giants.  We also lock heads over Disney’s The Princess and the Frog as well as news updates on the fantastic Irish animation nominations at the Academy Awards (Cartoon Saloon’s The Secret of Kells and Brownbag Films’ Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty) and we discuss the comic book potential of Apple’s ipad and what to see animation wise at this years Dublin Jameson Film Festival 2010. Magic.

  1. Fugger Says:

    Randy Newman’s a better song writer than Family Guy is a cartoon. I can prove that under laboratory conditions.

  2. thecomiccast Says:

    Some might say he’s equal to Family Guy as a cartoon. Mediocre. But we can’t prove that. Although we offer ‘Short people’ as exhibit a.

  3. Luke F Says:

    Family Guy makes me want to shove rusty forks in my bumhole.Terrible muck,altogether.I`ve never listened to more than thirty seconds of Randy Newman.He probably makes me want to shove things in my bumhole too.
