Where’s Larry? An interview with Philip Barrett

June 26, 2012

This week, as you can see from the photographic evidence above, we’ve been cohorting with Larry the Leprechaun! And while helping Larry move his crock of gold we found cartoonist Philip Barrett at the end of the rainbow! So we thought we’d interview him about his new book Where’s Larry? from O’Brien Press in which Larry travels around Ireland hiding in some of Ireland’s most beautiful spots such as the Giant’s Causeway and Galway Bay. Phil tells us the ins and outs of illustrating such a detailed book, his upcoming small press comics and he reveals just who was the inspiration for Larry’s smile!

Prometheus: The Comic Cast says ‘Yes’

June 12, 2012

We’re just gonna come right out and say this. We liked Prometheus. Seriously. We did. And on this weeks episode of The Comic Cast we explain why. Not only that, but Thunderbolts / Northlanders artist Declan Shalvey joins us to say why he DIDN’T like it.  In comics, we review a whole host of new Irish comic books including Where’s Larry by Philip Barrett, Destination Homicide by Alan Nolan, League of Volunteers: Black Scorpion by Rob Curley and Stephen Downey, Holy Numbers by Tommie Kelly and Two Lives by John Connor and Una Gallagher. We also give our candid thoughts on Before Watchmen by Darwyn Cooke. It’s a belter of a show! Enjoy!
