2D, or not 2D? That is the question. Or is the question ‘Would Shakespeare be happy with the Comic Cast using a line from Hamlet as a pun on the 2D Festival?’ Who knows? What we do know though, is that on this show we talk to the 2D Festival organiser and Verbal Arts Centre artist-in-residence David Campbell about this years 2D Northern Ireland Comics Festival which takes place this Fri, Sat and Sunday in Derry. We review Secret Avengers #1 by Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato, Avengers #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and John Romita Jr., The Chill by Jason Starr and Mick Bertilorenzi and Low Moon by Jason. We also give our thoughts on the Free Irish Comic Day preview of Atomic Diners’ forthcoming comic Róisín Dubh by Rob Curley, Maura McHugh and Stephen Daly. We also talk to Hilary Lawlor about the Point Village Comic Festival 2010 to be held at the newly opened Point Village Market on Sat 12th June.
