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.

ConSequential Podcast 37 - Queerness in Mainstream Comics

Covering books on topics ranging from the invention of the Pot Noodle to life as a tall ship sailor via the battle of Crecy and prostitution and sickness in the 80s New York art scene, there’s going to be something to interest everyone, as they say on the Shopping Channel.

We also have some cross-generational strife about Kenickie and talk about why mimes are awful. This episode features a musical interlude from the pan pipe stylings of Lucy Boyes. Read On…

Podcast Episode 4: Big Weird Sci-Fi

In this episode we look at the massive surge of Big Weird Sci Fi in comics, have a faint stab at explaining what the hell we mean by that, take a look at some recent releases, and whether Dave would make it as a pimp. Onwards!

And quite a lot of talk about That bit’s a little vile, so maybe jump forward a bit from about 20 minutes in if you’re a delicate sort. Smelling salts in hand, we press on. Read On…
