    I don’t think that the online audience was ready for such an enjoyable podcast. You’ve become like those professors that students are too afraid to approach.

    How did you manage to get snag Alan Moore? What a scoop! W for Wolverine will be the hot new comic of the summer.

    CORRECTION: The Constantine actor is Welsh, not American


  4. Gary Lactus Says:

    This does help. It helps me look like a bloody fool! Thanks for the correction.

  5. Thrills Says:

    I like when ‘Conjob’ (worst name) just sounds straight-up Welsh, though his weirdo mish-mash Constantine voice is quite plausible given that he’s playing a born-and-raised-in-working-class-Liverpool person who for whatever reason thinks he’s a right cockney.

    Terrible programme, though I will keep watching it as I am a fool.

    Was going to go to Thought Bubble and sheepishly introduce myself, but in the end I didn’t have to realise that potentially nightmarish scenario and stayed in Scoatlund and moved flats.

    It sounds like it was a right lark, the Thought Bubble.

    The thing I hate most about selling comics at a comics-selling thing is when someone comes to your table and silently looks through your work for ages, then goes away having not bought it or even aknowledged your presence. It’s the horror of dealing with customers, seeing them judging your work first-hand, and without even a couple of quid to soften the blow.

    I also hate having to hear my own shitty sales spiel over and over again when trying to convince people to buy, which becomes more dead-voiced and unconvincing as the day goes on. Also: knowing other sellers have had to hear it loads and probably hate you.

    I ALSO HATE THE PARANOIA and also everything else.

    Bah. Comics. It’s a mug’s game.

    I know almost nothing about Si Spurrier but he sounds like a lovely chap. I like when comics people aren’t and odious bunch of Kevin Smiths.

    PS I miss the London Boys. I recently found out they died in the 90s, on a ski holiday.

    Thrills: I kinda wish I had recorded my Phonogram pitch across the years from 2006-2014. The slow evolutionary drift of it would be fascinating in retrospect. The best one was the one I learned to do by gesturing and holding up pieces of card, which I had to resort to when I lost my voice.
