Kirby Your Enthusiasm, ep. 21: When Dann the Mann met Stan the Man!

 

YES, I'm finally back with a biiiiiiiig wrap-up of the inaugural Oz Comic-Con, held in Melbourne on the weekend of June 30 and July 1. It was a huge two days, where the definite highlights were meeting Marvel legend STAN LEE and, on a more personal level, extraordinary Aussie artist FIL BARLOW (of Zooniverse infamy). The lowlight was the lack of organisation by Oz Comic-Con and its merry band of uninformed, hapless volunteers.
This 31-minute podcast showcases all my thoughts - both good and bad - about the weekend.


Just in case you're wondering who all the voices are, I kick off the podcast with a few brief words of wisdom from Stan Lee himself at his panel on the Saturday.
It's followed by a series of interviews conducted on the Sunday with various Aussie creators: Burger Force writer/director Jackie Ryan; Scarlette Baccini (Zombolette), Fil Barlow (Zooniverse), Ben Hutchings (Walking To Japan) and Milk Shadow Books bossman James Andre; Steve Parke from FEC Comics, publishers of Kranburn (http://www.feccomics.com/); and Tom Taylor, the writer of The Deep from Gestalt Publishing. It's all interspersed with thoughts from myself. Enjoy!
