For our second ever podcast David Hains, Dalton Sharp, Salgood Sam and Dave Howard met up in Toronto to take a look back at the last year. News stories that stuck in our craws, and the books we loved and saw. And then we took a look ahead, in anticipation at some of the promised realeases of 2011.

  1. Author

    Self correcting, the Michel Choquette monster anthology of comics about the the 60′s was in fact started in the early 70’s, not the late 60’s as i said in the podcast!

  2. Great quote about the death of Seth’s beloved small town Canada: “It’s a Good Life if You Don’t Do Crack.”
    Great discussion. Sorry I missed it!

  3. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of Children of the Atom. I’ve had my copy since last year’s TCAF & am still haven’t made it to the end; I’m deliberately reading it in tiny bits to savour the innocence Dave captured in it.
    Learning that he works with kids & genuinely enjoys it brings the understanding home. I get the thinking behind ‘what if he could make comics full time,’ but would CotA exist if he didn’t have his day job? I would be poorer for it, certainly.
