It’s a slightly shorter episode this week as we recover from the wonders of London Super Comic Convention. I take a moment to look back at how the weekend went and to plug some of our upcoming UK shows, including Melksham Comic Con and Thought Bubble.

Then I chat with writer/artist/world-builder Steven Sanders about his ambitious and revolutionary Kickstarter campaign for Symbiosis. We discuss the impact Our Love Is Real had on his career, what Symbiosis actually is, as well as some of the legal and business issues involved.

If that’s not enough to ‘kickstart’ your week, I also chat with Hayley Spencer, the organiser of Melksham Comic Con. We look at the origins of the show, what it takes to run a not-for-profit organisation, and how Kickstarter can be used to make events happen.

To get in touch, discuss sponsorship opportunities or submit projects for consideration, please email reviews@popculturehound.com. You can also follow me on Twitter: @popculturehound. And if you missed last week’s episode (or any others) you can find them right here or subscribe via iTunes.
