Follow AL as he takes a walk through Shrewsbury’s finest comicbook festival. We were there at the beginning, when Comics Salopia first began all those years ago, so it was nice to take a walk and check out the vibes in 2022.

AL speaks to many artists in this medley of interviews. Including John Wagner, Kev F. Sutherland, Mike Perkins, Beef Beff, Poppy aka Vivid Bunnie, Sasha The Scribbler, Dave Gibbons, Charlie Adlard and Andrew Lawden.

AL could only be about for a couple of hours that day, but there was a really positive energy felt from the Museum right up to the Castle in Shrewsbury. There were Spider-Men roaming around, amazing talks happening in the Museum and plenty to look at.

These guys are the backbone of what culture is today. Whether you’re into your Marvel or DC, Umbrella Academy, The Boys or simple things like Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and so much. These are ideas that started of as a comic book/Graphic Novel!

It is events like Comic Salopia that really help remind us that the real rock stars are the writers, artists and publishers who give the art a platform to grow. There are a couple of examples in this podcast.

John Wagner – Judge Dredd, went on to made into 2 huge blockbuster movies plus A History of Violence, a graphic novel that was turned into a movie starring Viggo Mortensen.

Charlie Adlard – The Walking Dead…come on do we need to say more.

Dave Gibbons – Watchmen to this day is one of the highest grossing comic books of all time. There was a stunning movie adaption made in 2009 and a TV series which sent shockwaves across the world in 2019.

If it wasn’t for creative geniuses like this the world would be a miserable place indeed. Enjoy…
