Reviews: Zombies! Hunters #1, Dead, She Said #1, Casey Blue: Beyond Tomorrow #1

We were supposed to do research and come up with a special segment about Diamond Comic Distributor in a special podcast crossover of gigantic proportions! Instead, we talk about what little we know about Diamond and share a special children's story. The other podcasters did a much better job. More info over at Comic Related. Jimmy appears again in the next page of Chapter 5 of Jenny Romanchuk's webcomic, The Zombie Hunters.

CNI One Shot - Self Made Hero

What started out as a solo interview with Emma Vieceli (Manga Shakespeare Hamlet, Dragon Heir), soon turned into a selfless promo for the publishing group SelfMadeHero! That clever! Jimmy sat down with Emma Vieceli at the Bristol Comic Expo and was soon joined by Sonia Leong (Manga Shakespeare Romeo & Juliet), Emma Hayley (Publishing Director of Self Made Hero, 2008 UK Young Publishing Entrepreneur of the Year) and Robert Deas (Manga Shakespeare MacBeth). It was informative, funny, intriguing and ever so fun!

Joe is suspiciously absent, so the boys of Geek Syndicate, David Monteith and Barry Nugent, take over join Jimmy as special co-hosts. We talk the upcoming Bristol Comic Expo that Jimmy is attending and the boys give some much needed advice for an American traveling to the UK for the first time. (Hint: Don't diss the Queen.) We chat about the big hit flick, Iron Man, but don't spoil much, if anything. News includes Smallville, Randy Queen's return to comics, the Image 7, Barry Allen and more!
