Deconstructing Comics #473: Matt Seneca on sports, hate, and religion

Matt Seneca from AffectedYou may have heard Matt Seneca on the podcast Comic Books are Burning in Hell (and, hey, he was on our show once, in the persona of a mild mannered comics shop manager!), but he’s also a comics creator in his own right. His comics are deep, dark, and very honest in expressing his opinions. This week he talks with Tim about the lack of sports in American comics, why he needs to feel hate for something to make a good comic, and more.

Jimmy moderated a panel about British comics with UK creators from SelfMadeHero (Rob Davis, Glyn Dillon, JAKe, and Robert Sellers). It was recorded but the sound is not great. We are working on putting up a somewhat ear-pleasing version for an episode. If not, we’ll chat a bit about it on next week’s podcast. Stay tuned!
