We tell it how it is re: Marvels latest big screen movie – Iron Man 2 and we also give our tuppence worth about Matt Ogens documentary film Confessions of a Superhero, not to mention a round up of all the Irish comics events happening this summer including a run-down on who’ll be appearing at the 2D Festival in Derry next month.  If all that wasn’t enough to keep you sweet, we bring you the latest on the Thor and Batman movies as well as the new Marvel iphone app, and we offer our thoughts on the ongoing attempts to have Tintin in the Congo banned in Belgium.

April 6, 2010

The Comic Cast has been rated ‘C’ for comics. This means this podcast may contain reviews of Brian K. Vaughan/Niko Henrichons’ Pride of Baghdad, J.C. Vaughn/Vincent Spencers’ Zombie Proof , Susumu Katsumatas’ Red Snow, Mark Millar/Steve McNivens’ Nemesis and Paul Hornschemeiers’ All and Sundry.  It is also likely to include a review of the film version of Mark Millars’ Kick-Ass and a discussion on it’s violent content, not to mention which other future comic to film adaptations to keep an eye on. The censor also notes that an interview with 28 Days Later artist Declan Shalvey before he departed for New York is featured. Listeners should be accompanied by a parent or  guardian during the comics news section as it features the latest on the Walking Dead TV series, the return of All-Star Batman and Robin and all the goings on in the Irish comics scene this month. It may also contain scenes of a sexual nature. Maybe.
