THAT COMIC SMELL: Valerian / Jack Kirby

Two new episodes of the podcast are now online.

Episode 13: Valerian

From the website:
"In this episode the folks here talk "Valerian" The comic series created by Pierre Christin & Jean-Claude Mézières.
We go into the likes and dislikes of the series, what other projects the series inspired and whether they think it will make for an interesting film.
We weren't long back from the Glasgow comic-con in July, so we talk about the various books and goodies we acquired whilst there.
Plus! There is an added bonus review from our very own Tom at the end.
So plug in those headphones. Get ready to ride the podcast roller-coaster to the wonderful world of comics.

"Happy 100th Birthday Jack! From all of us here at "That Comic Smell"
I'm sure I speak for the world of comics when saying that, without you the comic world would not be what it is today and possibly wouldn't even exist. You were a creation genius and an inspiration to everyone and anyone within comics, whether they know it or not.
In this episode we talk all things Kirby. There is not much more to say except to sit back and absorb all the Kirby chat.
We are also joined by an extremely special guest: Comic Artist, creator and all round good guy Mr. Dan McDaid.
Enjoy Folks.
