This was a great experience for the Beardy And The Geek team, born out of a suggestion by Christian Read following our previous podcast interview to invite Nicola Scott and Andrew Constant from Torn - another excellent Gestalt Comics title - to have a round table discussion.
The question then became, well, what are we to talk about? Horror being a common theme between The Eldritch Kid and Torn, this was chosen for what became a wide-ranging conversation about grotesque imagery in superhero comics, the use of humour as a balance to scares, gorn and of course - whether clowns are actually frightening.
With so much liquid courage consumed, there was plenty said - Part 2 of the discussion is now available here.
