Comic News Insider Episode 407 – A Conversation with Frankie Boyle

Comic News Insider: Episode 407 is now available for free download! Click on the link or get it through iTunes! Sponsored by Dynamic Forces.

Jimmy sat down at lunch with comedian/comic book writer Frankie Boyle when he was in London for Kapow Con. Good pal/fellow podcaster Barry Nugent (Geek Syndicate) came along for the ride to join in the fun. Frankie is known for his “controversial/in your face” comedy so there is some bad language throughout. However, he’s a pleasant fellow who knows his comic books well! The guys chat about Frankie’s comic in Clint Magazine called Rex Royd, growing up reading comic books, his last comedy tour, his books and overall career. Really great discussion! Jimmy ends with a couple of profile questionairres to sum it all up. This episode is also a crossover with Stated Magazine and will appear on that website some time in the near future. Thanks to Frankie for his time and for lunch! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

Sidekickcast Episode #51 – The 619 Review Show 2010

Sidekickcast Episode #51 - The 619 Review Show 2010

We may be a month into 2011 but The Sidekicks haven’t had a chance to lay their 619’s of the year…until now. Journey through time and space, just like Batman and Mr Benn, as Gavin and Dan rummage through the last year’s comics and pick out their favourite titles, creators, covers and splash pages of 2010.

There’s time for some comic book news talk and as part of the Countdown to Cardiff Con we talk to author and fellow podcaster, Barry Nugent, about the launch of the comic book adaptation of his novel, Fallen Heroes.

The show rounds out with a special 619 version of the comic book news quiz with a twist, Secrets and Lies. There’s an announcement about the winner of the special signed Sidekickcast mug and of course hang on past the outro music for some of the best out-takes yet.
