Comic Racks – Episode 12 
Welcome to Episode 12 where Stace takes over the editing reigns for the first time (and shows Iz up by getting it done bang on time).Apologies for the sound issues in this episode which we wil have sorted out for next time :)Before they get stuck into the main topic of a Bristol Con preview, the girls talk about Rock Star, Dr Who doing Shakespeare, Baby Boomers at BristolCon and online, the Gotham Knights trailer and the Golden Champagne Glass Awards 2008 (vote Geek Syndicate!!).Reviews include Maintenance Vol 2, Ms Marvel #25, Dr Who Season 4 Eps 1 & 2, CJ7, and Everybody’s Dead #2. This section witnesses Iz inadvertantly insulting Steve Coogan (she didn’t mean to) while going mad over Son of Rambow, Stace losing her mind over not having Fillerbunny, and the Racks being divided over the new Who companion.Iz very rudely dominates the Top of the Racks section with a 12 minute hysteria fit over the best-birthday-present-in-the-whole-world, but makes up for it by also choosing Pushing Daisies which the girls bond over. Stace drops two (TWO!) titles in her Tail and Iz warns of the perils of watching Superhero Movie.For the main topic, the Racks chat about which creators/ writers / artists they are most looking forward to seeing in Bristol, and for the first time ever, both Racks like each others choice for Rack Music.

We apologise for the general apathy and lethargy displayed during episode 7. This was due to circumstances (alcohol) beyond our control. Anyway in this episode we discuss the delights of some of the games on the Xbox 360 namely Dead Rising (a teddy bear as an offensive weapon surely not), Gears of War and Rainbow Six Las Vegas. The upcoming Preacher TV series is discussed as well the new Starship Troopers movie. Dave rants about the Sony mp3 player and Barry finally blows his top over Smallville. Several new Tv soundtracks are also mentioned. In the middle of all of this we do our most difficult review so farÃïÂthe last ever (barring the epilogue) issue of Planetary and out thoughts on the series as a whole (minor spoilers). Oops.. nearly forget and the competition winner is announced.

Geek Syndicate – Sword and Sorcery Special
Years passed and rumours began to rumble through the outland kingdoms about a pair of fearless adventurers. Warriors, who roamed trackless deserts, mighty mountains and shining seas. These rumours grew into legends about these men who were at once; buccaneers, slaves, rouges and now Geeks for hire. This is the tale of the time the Geek Syndicate crossed swords with the keeper of the vaults of Telos. Their quest was to find classic sword and sorcery movies lost in the mists of time and space. To discard the unworthy (dungeons and dragons) and bring back the treasured few (Lord of the rings, Conan, Excalibur) for the whole kingdom to enjoy, no matter the risk. Come with me now and listen to a Podcast of high adventure!

Geek Syndicate Torchwood Special Episode
To all the Geek Syndicate listeners, my name is Bucky a friend of the guys you will know if you listen to the show.I received this mp3 by encrypted email from David yesterday with intructions that should I receive no word from either of them by monday I should publish this podcast.As yet I have been unable to reach Barry or David and I fear the worst. I told them not to review the first three episodes of Torchwood that there are those that might not like what they have to say. That there would be factions outside of the law,beyond the government who would stop at nothing to stop Geek Syndicate from revealing massive spoliers for each of the three episodes.Sadly after listening to the show I was more right I could have dreamed.Listen to perhaps the Geek Syndicate’s last ever podcast and make your own minds up.

    This is my blog:

    Kind Regards

    Hey Donnie, thanks for leaving a comment and thanks for leaving the question.

    One of the good ways is to get along to the UK comic conventions and meet some of the other artists, creators and publishers that are out there. The next big convention is the birmingham international comic show which is in october (

    You could also join our forum ( and post your message there as we have a lot of artists/ writers and a few indie publishers who drop by who might be able to give you some more specific advice. You could maybe see if there are any writers who want to work with you on something.

    Worth a try. Hope that helps!
