Comic Cast Capers
Much like Cheers, the Comic Cast is a place where everybody knows your name so pull up a stool at the bar and join the conversation as we review the long awaited Daniel Clowes comic – Wilson, Chew by John Layman/Rob Guillory, Black Blizzard by Yoshihiro Tatsumi and The Sword by the Luna Brothers. In Irish comics we give our verdict on Last Bus #2 by Paddy Lynch, RíRá #2 edited by Aidan Courtney and The Wren #2 by Jason Connors/Mark Kirwan. We tell it how it is re: Marvels latest big screen movie – Iron Man 2 and we also give our tuppence worth about Matt Ogens documentary film Confessions of a Superhero, not to mention a round up of all the Irish comics events happening this summer including a run-down on who’ll be appearing at the 2D Festival in Derry next month. If all that wasn’t enough to keep you sweet, we bring you the latest on the Thor and Batman movies as well as the new Marvel iphone app, and we offer our thoughts on the ongoing attempts to have Tintin in the Congo banned in Belgium.
