The Drokk-Easy!

Stomm! Rob and Clive are joined by long-time friend of the Speakeasy Chris Rogers to talk about one of the most iconic British comic characters of all time: Judge Dredd. We pick apart one of his most iconic tales, The Day The Law Died, and see how that story is a distillation of everything that makes the man who IS The Law so great.

Geekery and comics. It doesn’t get much more Speakeasy than that!

Warning: contains gratuitous prog-sniffing.

THE OCTOBER SPEAKEASY: COMICS SPECIAL!

We love comics. We read comics. And in this edition of the Speakeasy, we talk about comics. At length.

We review the best new books that The Dice Of Fate allowed us to look at in Spetember, and take an extensive look at the career and works of Frank Miller: the good, the bad and the very, very ugly.

Plus we amp up the geeky with a D100 and generally do what we do. Read along, whydoncha?

Hootin’ Holleration! It’s the Funnybook edition of the X&HT Speakeasy!

A few bits of housekeeping: in an attempt to bump our professionalism quotient up from  “endearingly ramshackle” to “barely competent” we are now available on iTunes! Click here to subscribe, and have our dulcet tones lick at your eardrums whenever you choose. 

As a knockon from that, and in an attempt to keep the cashflow out of Hosepipe-ville, we’re moving away from Soundcloud. This blog is now the home of the Speakeasy, and we’ll be migrating the earlier shows into a cohesive archive in the immediate future. Hope you like our new direction.
