4-Panel Vol. 2, Issue 13 – Stan Lee Tribute

We lost one of the kings of pop culture, a much beloved creative force, and one of the people who was responsible for making comic books what they are today. He made us believe in characters who were larger than life, but somehow still down

Keyframe 129 – Muffin-Topping Into Mainstream

My Hero Academia has been a huge success as a series, but it’s the remarkable success of the Two Heroes movie that has Tucky and Producer Rob thinking about the changing perception of animated feature films in the West. This naturally leads to an interesting

4-Panel Vol. 2, Issue 10 – Some Spooky Horror Comics

It’s Halloween, so we’re using that as an excuse to talk about some spooky scary comics and manga. There are plenty of suggestions for the discerning horror and supernatural fan including little known Eric Powell’s Hillbilly from Albatross Comics (which Producer Rob covered many moons

Keyframe 123 – A Natural Born Lever-Puller

When does nightmare fuel eventually travel full-circle and become hilarious? That’s the sort of question that can only be answered on the latest edition of 4-Panel. Join Andrew and Rob as they talk about all things comics & manga, and kicking off this week are

Now that we’ve got the good and bad of 2017 out of the way we have to resume normal service … for a given value of normal that is! This week we cast our eyes (which are admittedly in various states of working order), over

Keyframe 102 – 2017 (The Bad Side)

2017 is over, and what better way to mark the beginning of a new year in animation than a two-part look back at the previous year. With that in mind, we decided to do something a little bit therapeutic (for us), and get all of
