Festival Podcast lands exclusive interview with Jeff Lemire

The team at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast have landed a great interview with comic creator Jeff Lemire, the man who brought us Sweet Tooth, on their latest episode.

Jeff who, due to filming commitments, will this year be a virtual guest of the Festival in Kendal in October, has written some amazing books including Underwater Welder, Sweet Tooth and more. Streaming service Netflix has now adapted Sweet Tooth into a full series, produced by Robert Downey Jr.

Jeff talks to the Festival Podcast team led by Ian Loxam and Nicole Bates about his life in comics, goes in depth on a few of his titles and discusses the new TV series, too.

The Festival is hoping Jeff will be able to be at their 2022 event in person.

In this episode’s review section, hear some thoughts on Coma by Zara Slattery and Mukbang by Matt Simmons.

Yakapedia’s back, too, with Mike Williams talking abut US Presidential appearances in Marvel Comics and Pete Taylor gives us a short profile on cartoonist Leonard Starr.

There is, unfortunately, a sting in the tale of this great episode.

“Sadly, Tom Stewart has decided to step down as contributor to the show,” says Ian. “We thank him for all his hard work – and please ensure you check him out on That Comic Smell podcast.”
