From the web:
“WE TOLD YOU SO!”
We are diving into the truly sublime, the absolute cream of the crop, the comics greatness that is “Fantagraphics” David brings along only a fraction of his vast FG collection to show off. We discuss how some of their collected titles are published in the UK. We each take a turn appreciating the greatness of this legendary comics publisher and all whilst having an incredible special guest…
Yes, we are joined by the ever so talented ‘Charles H Raymond’ Creator of such titles as ‘Death Inc. , Chlorophyll, Dust and so much more that you can find here www.notsotiny.co.uk/index.html
We also explore our opinions on movies these days and a little trip down memory lane via our television nightmares growing up.

This and all the usual comics chat on the only comics podcast to be powered by gas…

THAT COMIC SMELL 41: Batman (Happy Birthday Dark/Bright Knight)




The new episode of That Comic Smell is now online.

Have a listen at Soundcloud, iTunes, and Spotify.

From the web:
"JUMPING JILLIKERS BATMAN!!”
NANANANANANANA BATMAAAAAAAAAN!! The Caped Crusader turns 80 this year with his 1000th issue on it’s way, so we thought it only fitting to discuss our very favourite Dark/Bright Knight! We go in to some back issues, some slight history of the creation/true creation and creators. Take a look at some of our all time favourite stories of Bats. We also answer some Bat related questions such as “Best Bat Family Member?” “Best Batman Villain?” “Best Bat Gadget and or vehicle” and loads more!
This and all the usual comics chat on the only comics podcast to be called upon to broadcast via a giant signal in the sky of a microphone…
That Comic Smell!"
