Robots From Tomorrow podcast

The boys are back this week, as Mike returns to the show from his sojourn abroad with thrilling tales of splendor seen and treasures purchased! He goes deep-dive into his experience at last weekend’s 2000AD 40th Anniversary Thrill Festival, both from behind the microphone and from wandering the convention floor. What kind of shindig does Tharg throw for his favorite Earthlets? How far does the American dollar go in picking up original Thrill-art? When was the last convention you went to where beer-related art accidents were a hazard to consider? Who was the artist ‘get’ of the show? All that, plus the differences in original art ideology on either side of the Atlantic, the many medias of Mark Buckingham, Rick Veitch tremor meeting Dave Gibbons sheen, recapturing comic shop wonder, solving distribution woes, and much more on today’s episode!

BONUS: Video of Mike’s “Building Worlds” panel, with Ian Edginton, INJ Culbard, D’Israeli, and Rob Williams.
