Episode 136 – In Conversation with Charlie Adlard!

by Chris Thompson

With Charlie Adlard …
 
After last week’s chat with Jon Schnepp & Holly Payne about their new documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, this week I’m back with a retrospective of Charlie Adlard‘s career presented at the NICE convention in Bedford.
 
Charlie & I discuss how he first started out, the various stages his career has gone through, his desire to go creator-owned, and how The Walking Dead has changed his life since. It’s a glimpse into the life of an artist who has known success at many levels!

Episode 110 – A Truly Marvel-ous Career with Carlos Pacheco!

by Chris Thompson

With Carlos Pacheco …
 
After last episode’s reading and discussion with The Unwritten‘s Mike Carey (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back for a very special career retrospective featuring legendary Marvel & DC creator Carlos Pacheco at the most recent NICE Convention in Bedford.
 
Carlos and I look back at his early days in Spain, how he eventually cracked the elusive American market, what challenges he’s faced along the way, and where he’s hoping to go next.

Episode 109 – Witness a Very NICE Reading with Mike Carey!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Carey …
 
Following on from last episode with John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with The Unwritten‘s Mike Carey for a reading from his latest novel, House of War & Witness (co-written with his wife & daughter) at the NICE Convention in Bedford.
 
In addition to another great dramatic reading, Mike and I sit down for a Q & A to discuss historical fiction, what it’s like writing with your family, how he approaches different forms of writing, and what’s coming up next.
 
NB: The sound quality during the reading is not ideal, but still well worth listening to. It improves during the Q & A around the 18-19 minute mark.

Episode 108 – Sensing Dredd with John Wagner & Ezquerra!

by Chris Thompson

With John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra …
 
After my last discussion with Jeff Smith as part of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with Judge Dredd creators John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra at the recent NICE Convention in Bedford.
 
Instead of rehashing the same old stories about Dredd, John & Carlos open up about how they started out and the kind of stories they enjoy, as well as what brought (and ultimately kept) them working together. It’s a rare glimpse into two creators who have enjoyed wide & varied careers.

Special – Chatting with Alan Moore & Some Other N.I.C.E. Folks!

by Chris Thompson

With Alan Moore & Jeff Chahal …
 
In a very special episode of the PCH podcast, I chat with legendary creator Alan Moore ahead of this weekend’s N.I.C.E. Convention in Kettering.
 
Convention organiser Jeff Chahal from Close Encounters in Northampton also stops by to explain how the show came to be and what his purpose was in doing it.
 
Finally, we close out the episode with a track from Charlie Adlard and Phil Winslade‘s band Cosmic Rays (formerly Mine Power Cosmic). It’s a rough live track that will give you an idea of what to expect when they perform at N.I.C.E. on Saturday night. Enjoy!
