Zero1After last week’s episode with Ian Churchill (which you can listen to here) and my recent film podcast (which you can listen to here) it’s time to return to an old favourite with Ales Kot (Change, Wild Children, Suicide Squad). Ales was my first guest way back on Episode 3 and we’ve had him on the show twice since then, so it’s always a pleasure to have him back.

This time around we discuss drugs in comics, what he’s been up to since we last spoke, the changeover from DC to Marvel, what people can expect from Zero, and, in a PCH exclusive, Ales reveals a brand new project (or two) coming out next year from Image Comics.

To get in touch, send feedback or submit projects for consideration, please email And if you missed last week’s episode (or any others) you can find them right here or subscribe via iTunes.
