Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s05e16 (19th November 2017)
“…a brave new world.”
This on is going to be one of our ‘serious’ episodes as we look into the subject of harassment in the comics industry and how it relates to comic cons – the place where attendees and comics creatives meet in close proximity. Are we are a tipping point where the topic of invasion of personal space and liberty can be spoken out loud in the landscape of comics? Can we see a future where inclusivity is the norm, rather than the exception? Where, as the song goes, do we go from here?
Leonard and Alyssa take a look at recent events and try to determine where we stand in the light of day, with a possible new dawn of comic conventions – and behaviour at such – could be over the horizon. As well as all that, we’ll be talking Marvel’s Punisher, DC/WB Justice League and the new series from THE WALKING DEAD’s Robert Kirkman, The Secret History Of Comics. Packed show, as ever.
TALKIN’ COMIC-CON: A CUP O’ TEA WITH AN ENGLISHMAN IN SAN DIEGO is the weekly San Diego Comic-Con and con culture live podcast, broadcasting every Sunday (6pm GMT / 10am PT / 1pm ET) and hosted by Leonard Sultana, joined by Alyssa Franks.
