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!

As Slade once said, “It’s Chrisssstmaassssss!” and here at the Comic Cast we’ve pulled out the big guns for our seminal-festive show if by ‘seminal-festive show’ you mean ‘pretty much the exact same show as usual’. Under the Christmas tree this week are Geoff Johns’ Green Lantern: Secret Origin, Thomas Ott’s The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8, Grant Morrisons’ Batman RIP, Joe Matts’ Spent, Kevin Huizenga’s Curses and Comic Book Tattoo: Tales Inspired by Tori Amos. Not to mention reviews of a whole sleigh-full of Irish comics including Andy Winters and Declan Shalvey’s Tim Skinner Total Scumbag, Philip Barrett’s MATTER no. 7 Weirdface, Katie Blackwood’s The Elephant & The Top Hat, Patrick Lynch’s In the Aquarium, Stephen Coffey and Ger Hankey’s Celtic Knights issue 1, the Free Irish Comic Day Anthology and Stephen Coffey and Barry McGowan’s Rosemary Herbb: the return. Stir that all up with some thoughts on this years Dublin Comic Con and a letter sent to us from an 8yr old girl and you’ll get this years Comic Cast Christmas Pudding. Lovely.
