When Giant Monsters Attack Beautiful People Die Podcast.

Colin and I were invited to sit in on an episode of the 'When Giant Monsters Attack Beautiful People Die' Podcast on Thursday.
We had a really enjoyable time, and had probably chatted for more than an hour before Dan and Dave actually started the session formally with their standard introduction.
They said it was set in a shed and it really was ...
The perfect little getaway from the house.
We were treated to biscuits, donuts and coffee, and I must say that I was very impressed with Bucky, the resident dog, as he never once tried to steal anything from me or even give me that ''You're not going to eat that whole biscuit yourself are you ?'' look.
Colin wolfs down some biscuits
whilst Bucky is away somewhere...
Yep, a very enjoyable evening.
Having listened to the podcast now, I'm amazed at how often I say 'Yeah' ... blimey ... I'll try to teach myself to just say it in my head in future.
Here's the podcast link...

Janet Of The Apes.

I'm a big fan of the Planet Of The Apes movies.
I still remember my Dad taking me to see the first one at the cinema and that scene with the sunken Statue Of Liberty at the end.
So ... over the years I've provided little 'Janet Of The Apes' cartoons to a Planet Of The Apes fanzine called Simian Scrolls and you can now get these in PDF format from
A lot of love and attention goes into the issues of this Fanzine, if you like Planet Of The Apes, old, new or both then you'll really appreciate this magazine.

Giant Monsters Attack...but not Accent UK comics...

I got a tweet yesterday from Giant Monsters Attack...
I remember the two guys buying some books at last weekend's Manchester MCM, and I remember them saying that they did a local Podcast ... it's always really interesting to hear what people think of our books and I used to love listening to the Tales From the Parent's Basement, Burnt Weiners and Small Press Big Mouth podcasts a few years ago, but one after another these all ended.
So... armed with my iPhone, which makes all of this a lot easier, I followed the link...
Turns out I had to download a new App onto myPhone, PodBean, but as usual this was pretty painless,and then a quick search and I was subscribed.
I decided to dive straight in and listen to Episode 39 - Love Interest as I was keen to hear what the guys thought of our efforts. 
Wow, they really enjoyed them and are very respectful in that they call out all the creators involved in the books, which is really nice. 
I listened to the whole episode in the end and it was good to hear their very positive comments about Mike Garley's very interesting The Killscreen and to find throughout the podcast that they had pretty balanced views and were quite willing to say they didn't like something if that was the case.
We've been invited into their Shed (which I think is their secret lair) for an interview, which we'll be sorting out in the very near future.
