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!

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…

In a surprise move, I've actually got another podcast ready, and this time it's me and the boss of Facebook Alpha Flight fans, Justin Mohareb, talking about the last ever issue of Cryster, The Crystal Warrior which for some reason has three members of Alpha Flight in (but not the same three as there are on the comic'c cover).Alpha Pod Flight, Copyr…
 
Everything goes black and white a bit this episode, where Steve Thompson joins me to talk about the time Alpha Flight went hunting for Walter Langkowski's soul in the Land Of The Great Beasts.
