DNA Podcast 118 – UK Comics with Richard Sheaf

The Notorious UK Comic ACTION’s cover that broke the camel’s back.

In this episode, Don and Rob sit down with UK Comics blogger Richard Sheaf to explore the fascinating world of UK Comic books. The three discuss how being weekly (as opposed to monthly) took UK comics in a totally different direction than American comics, how Pat Mills was UK’s version of Stan Lee (but with more talent), and why UK girls comics succeeded while their American cousins failed miserably. All this, and Hookjaw, are waiting for you in this episode of The Department of Nerdly Affairs.
