Waaaaaaay back in December 2019, me and Eamonn Clarke struggled through powercuts and other sundry difficulties to discuss one of the classic Alpha Flight Issues and then I never got around to doing anything about it. Until now!Buy DUI here: https://duicomic.bigcartel.com/Listen to Mega City Book Club here: https://megacitybookclub.blogspot.com/Buy…
 
When Mark Badger started out as a comics artist working for Marvel and DC Comics, his fine arts influences alienated his editors so much they singled him out as the very worst artist in their freelancing roster. Times have changed, though, and Badger's continued explorations into the duality between comics and modern art makes him the perfect, fina…
 
You will be hard pressed to find a better exemplar of an artist bridging contemporary art and comics than Aidan Koch. She is a long time alternative comics favourite, exhibited and published by the Whitney museum and MoMA — her suggestive and fragmented narratives spanning comics, animation, art installations and jewellery. Make yourself comfortabl…
 
As often as other artists have cited Oliver East on the Uncomics podcast, it was a matter of time before host Allan Haverholm sat down to talk with himself about the life and process of a walking cartoonist, poet, university lecturer, and painter of street rubbish. Learn how skateboarding is an act of remixing architecture, about transforming space…
 
Through the 2010s, Dunja Janković churned out dizzying, confounding and increasingly abstract comics, before she turned her creative focus to other art media like art installation and screen printing. Talking to Allan Haverholm in 2020, however, it becomes clear that comics never really lost their grip on her. Hear about her nomadic life and practi…
 
Between her ambiguous comics, gorgeous illustrations, installation art, and quilt making(!), Peony Gent is a renaissance multi-hyphenate. In this episode, she sits down with host Allan Haverholm to explain how they're all connected, how she creates gaps for her readers' interpretations to live in, and to declare her great love for Dungeons and Drag…
 
In this very wholesome threesome, Simon Russell and Gareth A Hopkins rejoin Uncomics host Allan Haverholm to discuss what really sets uncomics apart from, say, a Google image search; the "sound" of individual fonts; the singer Sting's sex life, and how a Finnish audience might be more open to uncomics performances. Please note that this conversatio…
 
Simon Russell is a man of many hats in the British comics scene — (un)comics creator, editor, graphic designer, and more. He talks to host Allan Haverholm about miscolouring Garfield, setting comics on a chemical formula, using the ashes of his own burnt works in paint to make new work, and putting a highly collectible comic book into a concrete sl…
 
Gareth A Hopkins started his comics career by making an abstract reworking of his favorite 2000 A.D. comic book. Since then, he has returned to his own work time and time again — published work, misprints and discarded art — to use it as the foundation for new uncomics. Your host Allan Haverholm talks to Gareth about comics, musical inspiration, pe…
 
A silk spinner, textile artist and sculptor, Erin Curry weaves comics into most of her work. Her early exposure in "Best American Comics 2014", of an abstract work made on translucent plastic sheets, showed only the beginnings of an artist whose deep engagements with materiality continue to evolve into interactive works and installations. Uncomics …
 
The Uncomics Craghead-aganza continues in this second talk with Warren Craghead III, where he and host Allan Haverholm expand upon his practice, the amount of talent at comics festivals compared to Art Basel — and the interdisciplinary field of uncomics. Be sure to first listen to our previous episode for the full picture!…
 
Since his 1996 Xeric Grant-winning zine "Speedy", Warren Craghead III has been at the forefront of North American avantgarde comics. Whether he is chronicling his daughters growing up, witnessing atrocities play out on his TV screen, or reporting World War I and the Armenian genocide at a century's delay, his work is a radically open, unflinching e…
 
A life long artist, Rosaire Appel spent years in the dark room and as a writer. Even if asemic comics and art books were a later shift in her oeuvre she arrived in the formative years of comics abstraction and uncomics. Her works explore visual sound and music; the shifting sands of being in the world; and the tensions between lexicality and visual…
 
We're back with the first proper Alpha Pod Flight for a while! We talk about one of my favourite issues, the 1986 Annual, where there's some ghost stuff (very on brand for me) Diablo is written as a coward and incredibly Shaman doesn't Do A Shaman!Please forgive me for the cover art, I've not got Photoshop at the moment so I did my best using the S…
 
Here's an Alpha Not Flight where I let Bill talk about his favourite ever comic, Dungeon Fun!If you're interested in buying the comic (which you should be, it's great) I think the best place to get it might be BHP Comics, who've put the first four issues out in a very handsome trade paperback: https://bhpcomics.squarespace.com/buy-books/dungeon-fun…
 
aka The Immortal Alpha Pod Hulk FlightMatt and me sat down to the little lake thing at the Barbican and occasionally remembered to talk about Alpha Flight, and the Immortal Hulk which alpha Flight have been turning up in, but mostly this is an exercise in tangents, which if you've already heard me talk about alpha Flight a lot is probably some kind…
 
Phil from the very excellent http://www.alphaflight.net comes back and we talk about one of my favourite issues of Alpha Flight, where the team battle a gigantic meat monster that used to be Mr Jeffries brother and Roger Bochs.Alpha Pod Flight, Copyright 2019 Gareth A HopkinsAlpha Flight cover image borrowed from marvel.wikia.comAlpha Flight and al…
 
I'm rejoined my Claire Napier, who helps me make some sense of my conflicted feelings about Alpha Flight #42, which I have to do without a copy of the comic in front of me becasue I'm either the worst podcaster or the absolute BEST podcaster.I'm on twitter here: https://twitter.com/grthinkClaire's on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/illusclaireAlp…
 
Here's the original recorded interview that the text from 'The Exploding Mess' was based on, minus a 10-second clip called 'Fall Damage' which was made by my son.The only person that comes out well in the recording is my daughter, I think, but that's normal.If you don't have a copy of The Exploding Mess, you can download the PDF here: https://drive…
