Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e40 (21st May 2017)
~ INTERVIEW: ERIC HENSON (Eden Comics, COMIC-CON A FAN’S HOPE documentary) ~
Back in 2010, Morgan Sperlock took his documentary team to San Diego in an attempt to capture some of the excitement, energy and sheer fanaticism behind Comic-Con. In doing so, he also documented the efforts of a number of individuals, attempting to make their mark in the melee – one of those people, chasing the dream, was artist Eric Henson.
We’re very lucky to have Eric join us to talk about what that very first year of Comic-Con was like for him, what the immediate affect of that trip was, how his creative career was affected by the attention the documentary brought him and where he finds himself, eight years later.
All of this and all of the weeks SDCC news and updates, including the released exclusives so far and off-site announcements… should be a fun show. Leonard and Alyssa would love to have you along!
TALKIN’ COMIC-CON: A CUP O’ TEA WITH AN ENGLISHMAN IN SAN DIEGO is the weekly San Diego Comic-Con International and con culture live podcast, broadcasting every Sunday (6pm GMT / 10am PT / 1pm ET) and hosted by Leonard Sultana, joined by Alyssa Franks.
