Sancho: an interview with Alan Nolan

July 22, 2010

It was fitting that this week, underneath brooding skies of pouring rain and rolling thunder, the Comic Cast met up to talk with writer/artist Alan Nolan, the creator of paranormal comic book adventurer  Sancho. Here he talks about the birth and growth of Sancho, working with Ian Whelan (co-writer), his forthcoming comic projects – Thunderbags and The 4 Fathers –  with Belfast’s Davy Francis as well as how his contribution to the Irish language comic RíRá – The Big Break Detectives –  is now being turned into a comic book series by the O’Brien Press, not to mention life as a self-employed  graphic designer.  Enjoy.

Probably not, but with continued access to a microphone in a remote location in Kildare this week we review Nicholas Gurewitch’s The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack, Neil Gaiman’s Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader? Alan Moore’s Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? Mark Schultz’s Superman and Batman vs. Aliens and Predator, Peter Milligan’s Sub-Mariner: The Depths and Greg Pak’s Magneto: Testament.
