God Save the Comic Cast

May 16, 2011

Ireland is on lock down with the arrival of the Queen and President Obama, right? Wrong. This weeks podcast has been deemed so explosive that the army have been checking every manhole (snigger) in Dublin to find it. On this weeks dangerous (and highly illegal) show we review Mr. Wonderful by Daniel Clowes, The Muppet Show Comic Book: Muppet Mash by Roger Langridge, The Littlest Pirate King by David B./Pierre Mac Orlan, Mighty Thor by Matt Fraction/Oliver Colpel, Fear Itself by Matt Fraction/Stuart Immonen, Ultimate Thor by Jonathin Hickman/Carlos Pacheco. We also mull over the Thor movie and discuss the latest on Irish events –  Offset and Squarebound. One is not amused, but perhaps you might be.

May 3, 2011

In the final of our series of podcasts recorded in New York, we sit down with American animator John R. Dilworth. As well as being the creator of Courage the Cowardly Dog – a series spawned from his Academy Award nominated short The Chicken From Outer Space, Dilworth’s work has appeared on CBS, Showtime, HBO, FOX, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and MTV, not to mention his films which have featured in museum programs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.  Here he talks about his career to date, how his New York animation studio Stretch Films reacted to 9/11 and why pink is not necessarily the best colour choice for a cartoon dog. Enjoy.
