The return of 'The Comic Spot'
Look! Up in the sky! It's the smog! No, it's... The Comic Spot!
Yes, Melbourne's favourite comic book radio show is back on air...
John Retallick, the main mover and shaker, has returned to the studio with Jo Waite and Bernard Caleo, his faithful chorus, and a new timeslot for 'The Comic Spot':
last Thursday of every month, 5 -6pm, on 3CR, 855 on your AM dial.
On Thursday 24 April we talked to the splendiferous, black-ink-stain-handed Mandy Ord (a funny story that was, too) about her book comic/graphic novel 'Rooftops' in the context of the rest of her comic book career, and her plans for the future. Very exciting stuff.
Next 'Comic Spot', Thursday 29 May, will be with Philip Bentley of 'Word Balloons' and 'Passionate Nomads' fame, and Bruce Mutard, whose book comic 'The Sacrifice' was launched the night before last (see post below).
Ah, Melbourne! You're such a happening comic book town!
