Episode 9 – The Reading List

Four girls out delivering papers one morning get caught up in a reality-bending time-travelling adventure. A think tank unleashes a magic-infused artificial intelligence upon the world, and now struggles with the consequences. And fifty citizens in a fairytale kingdom are caught up in a deadly contest to decide who will rule. We discuss 3 of our favourite recent comic book releases – Paper Girls, Injection and Geis. We also discuss why we don’t want to know who the new Doctor Who will be, and rule ourselves out of directing the new Batman movie.

Injection by Warren Ellis (writer), Declan Shalvey (artist), Jordie Bellaire (colourist), Fonografiks (letterer) from Image Comics

Episode 4 – for the Shaun Tan fan!

Following the recent release of The Singing Bones by Shaun Tan, we muse on this fairytale inspired artbook anthology, and some of his earlier works including The Arrival, Tales from Outer Suburbia, The Red Tree, and The Lost Thing.

Plus a few thoughts on Doctor Who spin-off Class season 1, and Ash vs Evil Dead season 2. (Spoiler – one gets a little better, one gets a little worse!)
