A Cavalcade of Comic Cast

New Years resolutions are a bit like making comic book podcasts – difficult to stick with but greatly rewarding when you do. Ladies and gentlemen, we’re back. On our first show of 2011 we put the spotlight on several comic books from the UK’s Nobrow Press including  Pebble Island by Jon McNaughtHildafolk by Luke Pearson (above image), Temporama by Clayton Junior and Nobrows’ first anthology collection – A Graphic Cosmogony. We also review issue 1 of Infinite Vacation by Nick Spencer / Christian WardKick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall by Mark Millar / John Romita, Jr.Superior by Mark Millar / Leinil Francis Yu and Spiderman: The Clone Saga by Howard Mackie / Tom DeFalco. We talk Tron Legacy and argue over its use of 3D  as well as give our two cents on the casting of Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. Enjoy!

    Hey guys, really enjoyed the podcast – have to say there is DEFINITELY a loss in colour with 3D :) – think Christopher Nolan said it amounted to a loss of one foot candle or something like that – also:


    In real life you can choose what to focus on and what is blurred – which is why Orson Welles chose to shoot a lot of Citizen Kane with high depth of field.

    Your podcast keeps me sane when I’m jogging through the dark hills of Skerries
