Podcast 69 – Revisiting The Past

ConSequential Podcast 69 (Nice) - Revisiting The Past

They say that the past is a foreign country, and as British citizens we are therefore left with an extremely limited window of opportunity to go there without a visa. We’re looking back at books we loved, formative experiences, to see how they stack up now. Also: other comics! Is a hotdog a sandwich? More! Read On…

Podcast 68 – Comic Shops

ConSequential Podcast - 68: Comic Shops

We really expected to just talk in gushing tones about our favourite comic shops and then come up with some great ideas for how we’d run our own.

So of course we’re ranting about the comics Direct Market. But also some other stuff!  Read On…

ConSequential Podcast 64 - Thought Bubble 2016

It’s that time of year again, so Roger and Dave are at Thought Bubble with special guests the people who could be lured back to their hotel room with cheap wine and a cocked eyebrow Dave Barker and Hester Wells (from heirloom-comic.com), and Clarrie Maguire (of ProblemChimp.com – specialist bookkeeping for all your starving artist needs).

They’re all drinking chocolate-flavoured British wine (as distinct from English wine, people on Twitter get very huffy if you confuse the two. So, what was the best of day one? Read On…

Podcast 63 – Objectification / #Butts

ConSequential Podcast 63 - Objectification also butts I guess

Just like he kinetically charges his playing cards, Gambit sexually charges this chunky Scandinavian-style knitwear, courtesy of artist and comics-doer Dave Barker.

We’re joined in this episode by Hester Wells, the only guest we’ve ever had who has her own biographical comic that she didn’t draw herself (specificity, yo), to help us out with the thorny topic of objectification, particularly in mainstream comics.

This episode is groaning with comics, throbbing with intellectual discussion and glistening with salty language. Read On…

Podcast 62 – Food

ConSequential Podcast Episode 62 - Food

But did you know it can also be delicious? It’s true! We found many comics on the topic, and now we’re sharing their wisdom with you. Read On…

Podcast 61 – Fantasy

ConSequential Podcast 61 - Fantasy

We bravely set out to find the very best in fantasy comics, but we got badly sidetracked and got eaten by a Groo, a monster from a videogame that shares its name with a fantasy comic we didn’t actually cover. Will that do? I tried.

There’s a weird lack of fantasy comics, so we try to figure out why what Mr Hart so kindly refers to as “Elves and Swords and Bollocks” isn’t as prevalent as other genres.
