ComicScene UK – the new monthly magazine dedicated to comics and comic culture – is to launch a fortnightly podcast on Tuesday 5th February.
Presented by Phillip Vaughn and produced in the University of Dundee the Podcast is an extension of the monthly magazine and compliments the magazines news website http://www.comicsflix.org
The first edition features ComicScene publisher Tony Foster on the background to publishing ComicScene, an interview with Batman/Judge Dredd artist Cam Kennedy, the ComicScene Book Club featuring Roy of the Rovers and a look at classic and new comics with guests in the studio. The first edition features Chris Murray, Golnar Nabizadeh and Damon Herd.
Tony Foster said today, “I wanted a podcast that could reflect aspects of the magazine, include a diverse range of voices and opinions and be based in a place where U.K. comics are produced. I heard Phillip Vaughan’s ‘Masters In Comics’ Podcast which had the quality we wanted, he had connections with top and upcoming creators and he just happened to be based in Dundee, home of DC Thomson and the Beano, so it was the perfect fit.”
Phillip Vaughan continued, “I chatted with Tony on the phone and we were of like mind on the direction of the ComicScene Podcast. I have the creative freedom to develop the Podcast and there are some exciting things coming up in future editions. The first one is a bumper two hour launch show and we hope it will go from strength to strength and be an unmissable listen every fortnight.”
