Samuel George London - Ep#21

June 5, 2020

This month we bring you a chat with comic book author and fellow podcaster Samuel George London.

We met Sam at True Believers (2020) and invested in his Milford Green comic books. It's amazing that Sam had never even written a major fictional story until he wrote Milford Green. He did so with the help of a structure laid out by Dan Harmon called the Story Circle and drawn by ace Finnish artist Mikael Hankonen. Sam talks about his experience with Kickstarter, how he found Mikael, delivering the final part of Milford Green, his love of a Museum in Baisingstoke and his upcoming projects which we are looking forward to.

On top of that, we make up a wonderful story that we are sure Marvel will be all over if they have any sense.

Arthole - Ep#20

Arthole - Ep#20

May 1, 2020

Another month is upon us and we are still in lockdown, we hope you are all well.

This episode was recorded at the beginning of March. Elliot and Kay collectively known as Arthole joined us after a full day at the Bristol art fair Shake. We fed them and plied them with tea to find out more about their own art fair, style, interests, influences and whatnot.

Of course, we also made them roll some dice and invent something on the spot and they did not let us down. How Kay managed to draw a whole page of a comic in such a short space of time is beyond us.

Do yourself a favour and go check out their social media to find out when the magazine will be released. Or become part of the elite Arthole Isolation Club and buy yourself a swanky t-shirt. You will be helping to support the magazine and two lovely young artists at the same time.

CB - Ep#18

CB - Ep#18

March 6, 2020

We took a trip in early Feb to Cheltenham to check out True Believers Comic Festival. There we caught up with a multi-talented creative CB. We first bumped into CB at Cardiff comic con and we were compelled to have them on the Podcast as soon as we could. It took a while to set up but we got there in the end.

CB has produced two awesome comics; ThirteeN, the adult erotic demon zine about a former witch who is thrown into a life of servitude in the fiery pits of the underworld and Avery Chase a Sci-fi action-adventure extravaganza. CB also draws awesome illustrations some of which are more sensual than others. We hope that you take some time to check out their work and spread the word.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part two of our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

If you have not already listened to Part 1 of this then we would advise you to go and do that. In this section we get Sarah rolling a whole bunch of dice in which she gets what is known in D&D as a critical fail! Nothing is a critical fail in our book, not even Chris's poorly drawn horselike creature. From this chaos comes a beautiful fantasy scene involving castles, princesses and a deep conspiracy. You can see all of the drawings via our social media links below.

Remember to check out NPC Tea, you can grab a copy from Sarah's Etsy page and catch her at ComiXology 205 during Thought Bubble 2019. Thanks again, Sarah. We look forward to seeing you at the convention.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 1

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 1

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part one our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

Sarah is a writer and artist that we found at Cardiff MCM. It was because her comic involved tea which Chris drinks a lot of and because our initial chat with her just felt so natural we really wanted to get her in for a chat and we are so glad she said yes. We had to split this into two parts because there was just so much that we covered. In this part, we dig a bit into Sarah's history and how she feels about people believing in her work. Sarah is also a DM for a D&D group that she runs over Skype and I can only imagine how much fun it is to be in one of her sessions. If ever she needs a guest character I am sure that Nathan and Chris will be only too happy to join in.

NPC Tea is available via Sarah's Etsy page and you can catch Sarah at Thought Bubble 2019 @ ComiXology 205. Stay tuned for part 2 of this interview and hear what is rolled and what we draw.

Thunderchair - Ep#9

Thunderchair - Ep#9

June 21, 2019

We have the pleasure of chatting with Howard, Joe and Ferg who collectively call themselves Thunderchair for Episode 9. We begin by chatting about their new comic book launch event for Hyper Galactic Rockstar Champion: Royal Rumble. They have an interesting history of really long title names for their comic books. We talk about how they all met, what their influences are and there is a lot of silliness that happens. All of that is before we roll the cubes and somehow create a 70's style cop play starring a monster who is experiencing some sort of time shift.

Rhiannon Kagoe - Ep#8

Rhiannon Kagoe - Ep#8

June 7, 2019

Rhiannon Kagoe joins us for episode 8 to talk about her comic books. She intends to try and release at least one comic a year. She talks about how drawing is some form of self-help therapy for her and how she finds it easier to come up with ideas when she is sad rather than happy. We also touch upon the tricky fact that people are currently choosing not to vaccinate their children. Consider this a warning that if you do find talks about this subject tricky then you might want to skip that bit.

Remember to take a look on Facebook and Instagram for the images that were drawn for the dice roll. We can't thank Rhiannon enough for providing us with two awesome sketches. Our next episode will be live on June 21st.
