And the Oscar goes to . . .


A limo pulls up to the red carpet, cameras flash in a blinding flurry, people jostle each other just to get a look – who could it be? Why it’s the Comic Cast of course! They’re all here to see us review Nathan Edmondson/Christian Wards’ Olympus, Guy Delisles’ Albert and the Others, Mark Waid/Peter Krauses’ Irredeemable, Tommie Kellys’ Road Crew 1: For Sale, Marvels’ Girl Comics and Miguel Martin’s The Weekly Woe. Over drinks in the VIP lounge, we’ll debate Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland and the DVD release of Fantastic Mr. Fox. We’ll be speaking to Rob Curley of Sub City/Atomic Diner about his latest comic Róisín Dubh in collaboration with Maura McHugh and Stephen Daly and he gives us the low down on Free Irish Comics Day 2010. And if all that didn’t deserve a standing ovation, we report live from the Oscar party in Ballyfermot College in black tie where the college that spawned four of the Irish nominees waited with baited breath, as did we, to see who would claim a golden statuette at 4am in the morning! We’d like to thank ourselves for all our hardwork. And God.
