PODCASTS: The Comic Cast Squarebound

On June the 18th 2011 Squarebound: an Irish comics creators convention took place in the Irish Writers Centre, Dublin. The Comic Cast was invited to speak at the event and decided to create a special video piece where they asked three Irish comics creators – Maeve Clancy, Philip Barrett and Paddy Lynch – to talk about five comic panels or pages that they liked and to tell us why. We also decided to talk about several illustrations that had been drawn of us by the likes of Chris Judge, Bob Byrne and Stephen Thompson since we began the podcast several years ago.
The full post ( http://thecomiccast.com/2011/07/05/squarebound-an-irish-comics-creators-convention/ ) also contains three podcast recordings of panel discussions that took place at Squarebound. One of which features Ivan O’Brien, managing director of The O’Brien Press, talking about his companies foray into graphic novels and Irish talent.
