Deconstructing Comics #569: A Toast to London and Comics! with Amrit Birdi, Ram V, and Neil Gibson

This week Koom wraps up London Super Comicon with more interviews.

First, TPub Comics’ Neil Gibson talks about the publisher’s ongoing series Twisted Dark (a series discussed in Critiquing Comics episodes 59 and 85!).

Then, Amrit Birdi (at left in above photo) and Ram V talk about the attraction of comics, the relative merits of various books on the medium, and how (or whether) being from India affects their comics work.

Critiquing Comics #085: Twisted Dark vol. 5

Twisted DarkTwo years after critiquing volume one of writer Neil Gibson’s Twisted Dark anthology series, Tim and Mulele take a look at volume 5. The takeaway? An improvement… but a piece of advice: be aware of the difference between “End” and “To Be Continued”.

SMH offices - me, emma hayley3
Jimmy covered the Kapow Comic Con in London last weekend and got tons of great interviews with the likes of Mark Millar, Jonathan Ross, John McCrea, Gary Erskine, Dave Barris, Emily Lockwood,  Scott Mackay (Electric Man), Gemma Bedea, Lee Fenton Wilkinson (Afroella), Neil Gibson (Twisted Dark),  Rasheed, Tayo Olarewaju (Mister Who), Steve Tanner (Time Bomb Comics)! He recorded the show with Self Made Hero publisher Emma Hayley (pictured with Jimmy above) in their posh offices. Since there was such massive coverage, he threw the format show out the window and just did a big Kapow recap with interviews. So no news, reviews, Top 3 or feedback. Fret not, regular format will return next week! And if you want to read the recap complete with pictures, go read it here. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
