Recorded live at Cardiff International Comic Expo 2011 comes a roundtable discussion about the UK con scene, independent comics and of course the Cardiff Expo itself.

Once upon a time in a far away land there were three princes; Prince Dan Charming, Bonny Prince Bones and the artist formally known as X-Centric Prince Ned. Together these princes formed a merry band of Sidekicks and set out into the wide world to spread the word of las comicas. Listen in as they tell tales of their upcoming adventures as far as the wetsern port city of Bristol for the Bristol International Comic and Small Press Expo to present a panel with the mighty pen-man of The Dark; Chris Lynch. Ok I’m growing tired of this Fables speak, so I’ll just say we also talk about upcoming stuff on the site and learn the rules of the comic book fashion club.

Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the classic out-takes.
