365 #47 “Its Yer Sel” Musician Andrew Valentine Chat/ Top5 Movie OST/ Glasgow Film & Comic Con Grado Interview

47Well this week we have a chockablock episode. We have left the comfort of the Podcave to go back to Studio 1 (Chris’s Office) to Interview and chat to local Musician and Recording Artist Andrew Valentine.

Andrew stops by to listen to our usual brand of trademarked News that has spiked our interest and he shares his views on the subjects as he is also a bit of a Film Comic Geek. He gives us his cheeky thoughts on Suicide Squad before we move onto Pimping his work.

We were lucky enough to get a couple of his tracks to play on the Episode leading in and out of the chat we had about his work so far and where his goals will take him. You can buy these tracks on iTunes

Adventure, Hawaiian Style!!

Adventure, Hawaiian Style!!

Image Comics’ Aloha, Hawaiian Dick #5 is the final issue in this mini series. This was one heck of a book to pick up sight unseen. But, writer B. Clay Moore does a superb job of giving the reader a brief synopsis of previous events. It is a good thing, too, because so many bodies drop and bullets fly before you reach the end that you’d feel like the book was written backwards, otherwise. It has that gritty, noir feel of a 1950’s detective show, but with more violence and blood. More

Review – Don’t Mess With This Princess

Dynamite’s Xena: Warrior Princess #5 is an interesting book. Coming from someone who rarely watched the show when it was on the air, I approached this as a new property that I’m getting introduced to and have been pleasantly surprised. More
