"*Music: Chartsmasher - Dial Up*
Welcome to a very special episode of That Comic Smell podcast in which we have the extra special creators of Treehouse Comics ( in TCSPod HQ!
Stuart and Neil very kindly dropped by to talk all things comics with David, Mike, Tom and Nando. They gave us a little insight into how they got started, their creative process, what they think about comics, cons and so much more.
We had Nando coming through to ask questions via. Skype. (Warning: Rather Loud)
It's veritable Treehouse bonanza as Mike and David are both heavy contributors to the Treehouse anthologies also and give their point of view on what it's like to put forward their pieces to the collective and how they find that experience overall.
So sit back, relax and enjoy the newest sunshine (Weather not guaranteed) on the only podcast to be coming to you from an actual Treehouse (Location not guaranteed)
