The ConSequential Podcast

Food! For most of us it's a sludgy nutrient paste we shove into the front of our withered forms to stretch their existence out for another grim and grey stretch. But did you know it can also be delicious? It's true! We found many comics on the topic, and now we're sharing their wisdom with you.

We bravely set out to find the very best in fantasy comics, but we got badly sidetracked and got eaten by a Groo, a monster from a videogame that shares its name with a fantasy comic we didn't actually cover. Will that do? I tried.

There's a weird lack of fantasy comics, so we try to figure out why Mr Hart so kindly refers to as "Elves and Swords and Bollocks" isn't as prevalent as other genres.

This episode we look at the Eisner Awards, looking at recent winners and asking: "Awards, huh? What are they good for?" Stick with us to find out.

This week we try to correct for our utter ignorance about manga, reading as much as we can in two weeks and then spouting opinions all over the place.

A theme emerges in Roger's reading. Not a good theme.

This week we look at the Louvre's very own comics range in detail. Plus special guest Chris tells us about ELCAF, a diversion about Shakira, and Roger liberally salts his crotch.

This week we're covering the Broken Frontier anthology, a recent collection of sci-fi treats. Plus! English wine! Corn! And guess who does an impression of a "Wizard's Stairlift"? It's not actually a sex act!

Disease and a lack of free time have delayed our return - if your time is as obviously precious as ours, let us steer you through the murky, yaoi-filled waters of webcomics and onto the safer shores of whatever weird porn it is that you like instead.

Also learn which version of Doctor Who is sexually attracted to! Listen to us talk ourselves out of joining the CIA! More!

This week we tread into the murky waters of politics, which means we mostly talk about Transmetropolitan, because most other political cartooning out there is exclusively by and for crazy people, and that ain't us.

This episode has a bad word in it. A really bad one. Lucy done it.

As always, ConSequential is brought to you by fried starches, alcohol, and a lingering sense that something, something we can't even remember, has gone terribly wrong.

And of course, our title music is by Canon Hannon’s Ham Cannon.

How angry is it possible to be about Tintin, a comic where a boy and his dog solve mysteries and occasionally assert the supremacy of Belgium? Really quite, it turns out. That's right, we're covering the comics of France and Belgium (in rage-spittle).

Plus! Learn who's an alcoholic (it's Captain Haddock, and Roger). Which Franco-Belgian comic character has "bad trousers"? What are good names for the Cornish? We'll tell you.
