The Fantasticast Episode Twenty-Four: An Enfant Terrible Is Not Literally A Terrible Infant

Episode 24

No, it really isn’t. Except that this time it is. I messed up the uploading of this episode on Friday, but didn’t notice until Charlie Niemeyer pointed it out to me. Unfortunately, at that time I was in Leeds, 200 miles away from my laptop. I then found out that it’s nigh-on impossible to edit posts from my iphone, which is how the previous post popped up. Oh, and I’d linked to the wrong episode in that post anyway. So, basically, as far as the podcast goes, the weekend was a bit of a disaster.

So, whilst the internet was crying out for new Fantasticast, both Andy and I attended the annual Thought Bubble Convention in Leeds. Thought Bubble is a wonderfully friendly, small-scale convention that attracts a stellar guest-list that most cons would kill for. This year’s convention boasted Jason Aaron, Mark Waid, Paolo Rivera, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Esad Ribic, Yanick Paquette, Charlie Adlard, David Hine, Doug Braithwaite, Sean Phillips, Eric Stephenson, Stephen Wacker, Anthony Johnson, Emma Riod, Phil Noto, Barry Kitson, Alison Bechdel, Scotty B, Pia Guerra, Becky Cloonan, Lee Garbett, Jock, and many more. Fiona Staples was also on the list, but an unfortunate bout of food poisoning kept her out of the convention for the weekend. So, yes, it’s a show that bats above its weight considerably with the quality of its guests.

Andy and I met for the first time. Former guest-host David Wynne provided me with an amazing piece of artwork (which I’ll pop up on here as soon as I find a scanner). Mark Waid signed plenty of Fantastic Four comics. Oh, I danced like crazy on the dancefloor with… well… anyone who was there.

Thought Bubble was amazing, basically… But more importantly, there was a new episode of The Fantasticast, finally.
