Thunderbolts and lightning, very, very frightening

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new Comic Cast and we’re feeling good. Reviewed on this weeks show is Irish artist Declan Shalvey‘s Marvel debut as artist on Thunderbolts #148 (written by Jeff Parker), Fantagraphics latest anthology – MOME Summer 2010, Book One of The Abominable Charles Christopher by Karl Kerschl as well as Mark Millar’s new comic book magazine CLiNT featuring Turf #1 by Jonathon Ross/Tommie Lee, Kick Ass 2 and stand-up comic Frankie Boyle‘s foray into comics with Rex Royd.  We also give our verdict on Alan Moore’s Unearthed – a box set featuring an audio biography (read by Moore) of his  comic book contemporary Steve Moore. We take a trip to the movies to review Sylvain Chomet‘s latest animated feature The Illusionist as well as the DVD release of Defendor starring Woody Harrelson.  We also chat with BrenB about Offset 2010 – Ireland’s biggest creativity conference. Not to mention all the latest comic book news.  Go ahead and download – your ears will thank you.

    The joke’s on you boyos, “the Missionary Position” is the first ever book to criticise the saintliness of Mother Teresa, the fact that many in poverty suffered (were kept that way) while she lived in comfort, begged money for the church and hung around with dictators etc. It’s written by Christopher Hitchens, long time contrarian and author who has taken shots at many sacred cows, including Henry Kissinger: war criminal…and yes the title “the Missionary Position” is an intended pun.
