The episodes will be coming thick and fast for the next few weeks. Here is the Don of British comics Richard Sheaf discussing David Roach's glorious Masters of British Comic Art, and playing possibly the hardest version of the grail page game so far.

Only listened to half of the podcast so far, but it looks like that Tina cover is in David Roach's personal collection (though not the non-comic artwork it was compared to).

The pod-a-week continues as I chat with our very own Conrad SpaceSpinner 2000 Leiden about some recent moves we've been to see.
We also discuss the excellent Lawless convention experience.

Conrad from Space Spinner 2000 joins me to talk about the second Mach 1 collection and, in particular, the Mighty One’s Mach Zero run. We also review the Action 2020 special with spoilers and stay tuned for a Foxy bonus at the end of the episode.

for anyone who enjoyed episode #121 you might be interested to know that a Redondo splash page (from prog 54) from 'The dolphin tapes' is now up for sale [not by me]

A speedy return for the Don of British comics, Richard Sheaf. We met up at Lawless to do a quick bonus episode about John Sanders’ memoir of his work publishing many of the comics we know and love.
