Kirby Your Enthusiasm, ep. 35: "The FEAR."
IN WHICH Dann is joined by his wife Helen on a road trip across Australia to discuss fear: in comics, in life and in movies.
Topics covered include Nailbiter (Image, 2014; Writer: Joshua Williamson/Artist: Mike Henderson) and Sweet Tooth (Vertigo, 2009-13; Writer/artist: Jeff Lemire)...serial killers in South Australia during the 1970s and 80s, and how they affected our childhood perception of the world...movies such as the original Ring (aka Ringu, Japan, 1998) the original The Vanishing (aka Spoorloos, Holland/France, 1988) and Joy Ride (aka Roadkill, USA, 2001).
It's 43+ minutes in a noisy car spread over five days. It's epic, it's only tangentially about comics and I think it's my best podcast to date. Enjoy!
