It’s that time of the day when you may be thinking of unwinding and kicking back. As ever we’re here to help with a wide selection of popular post from the past week to keep you entertained.
Welcome to ‘Something for the Weekend’:
- Last weekend we brought you a good deal of coverage from one of the UK’s most favoured comic book festivals here in the UK, Thought Bubble, that delivered a selection of impressive video interviews and presentations. You can catch up with all this year’s coverage here and catch up with all this year’s videos on Thought Bubble’s YouTube channel here.
- This week we also brought you an interview with Mark Russell in which we talked about Billionaire Island as well as the forthcoming Second Coming sequel, Second Coming: Only Begotten Son, coming from AHOY Comics this December. You can catch our chat here.
- We also spoke with creators Paul Hanley and Ian Richardson about their new Kickstarter campaign for The Unthinkables; a comic book all about super villains saving the Earth when all the capes mysteriously drop dead! Check out out three-way conversation again here.
- As well as comic book related features, we also brought you the trailer for IP Man: Kung Fu Master. A new movie and a new actor playing IP Man in this re-boot. Watch it again, or for the first time, here.
