The latest Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast comes brimming with interviews from the annual Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal, conducted by co-hosts Ian Loxam and Nikki Bates.
"We chat about how the show was for us, what we enjoyed and what we saw," says Ian. "We discuss the opening night, which saw Hannah Berry crowned the next Comics Laureate taking over from Charlie Adlard and Hunt Emerson winning the Sergio Aragones International Award for Excellence in Comic Art 2018 as well as all the happenings of the weekend.
Ian and Nikki also review the stunning Traces of the Great War, which was co-commissioned by the Festival.
We have loads of interviews as well including chats with Steve Gregson and Matt Simmons (Bastard Galaxia), Corey Brotherson (Magic of Myths), Dave Cook (Killtopia), Jens K Styve (Dunce), Robert Brown, Simon ‘Simo’ Simpson (The Needleman), Simon Richardson (The Unity Wall), Lyndon White (Candles), Myfanwy Tristram (Draw The Line), Tom Nash (Tut and Groan) and Owen Michael Johnson (Reel Love).
