Episode 122 – In Conversation with Nick Roche & Scott McCloud!

by Chris Thompson

With Nick Roche & Scott McCloud …
 
After last week’s chat with Descender‘s Dustin Nguyen, followed by Beast Wagon‘s Owen Johnson & John Pearson, this time I’m back with Nick Roche (Transformers, Monster Motors, New Warriors) to launch the Irish Invasion exhibition in the Orbital Gallery.
 
Nick & I discuss the burgeoning creative scene in Ireland right now, how he first started out in comics, the perils of being ‘typecast’ as a certain kind of creator, and where he sees himself going next.
 
Then, as an extra bonus, I present my Q&A with Scott McCloud from his signing of The Sculptor earlier this month. We delve into his approach, what the book means to him, and how it feels to be putting out new sequential work for the first time in many years.

Episode 106 – The Magic of Comics with Scott McCloud!

by Chris Thompson

With Scott McCloud & Dave Gibbons …
 
After last week’s discussion featuring the Wicked + Divine team of Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie at D.I.C.E. (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with comics creator, advocate and theorist Scott McCloud (The Sculptor, Understanding Comics, Zot!) for a very special Q & A session at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival.
 
Scott and I share some interesting discussion with a packed house, then we have the privilege of introducing the new UK-based charity CLAw (Comics Literacy AWareness) to the world, as well as unveiling their first initiative. It’s an exciting time to be in comics in general, and it captures just a small portion of the magic that is the Lakes Festival.
