    Episode 19 - Everybody Loves Paul

    In this momentous episode the ladies do away with their usual format in order to bring you their very first creator interview with none other than the frankly rather awesome Paul Cornell.

    Paul has dipped his toe into the wonderful world of comics on many an occasion, writing stories such as Wisdom, 2000AD's XTNCT and the currently running (and fucking brilliant) Captain Britain and MI:13 series, to name but a few. As well as working in the comics world, Paul has penned some of the best episodes of Doctor Who to grace our TV screens (Human Nature and Family Of Blood, anyone?), several Doctor Who novels and audio shows, and episodes for top series' such as Primeval, Robin Hood and Casualty.

    During the interview, the girls quiz Paul about his upcoming projects, whether being a writer makes watching shows/reading books more difficult from a technical point of view, and whether he's had any unnerving fan experiences (other than Stacey professing her undying love for him at Bristol Convention earlier this year, of course.)

    To top the episode off, we pick our Rack Music for this fortnight; both of which turn out to be rather geekily inspired as one of us riffs on a Watchmen theme while the other takes inspiration from Wisdom #3.

    All this as well as some insights into Paul's writing history, advice for budding writers and some good old fashioned swearing.

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls (go away, you innocent children shouldn't be hearing this kind of language!), welcome to Episode 17 of Comic Racks; the episode where no-one can stay on topic!

    That's right, it's Tangent City this episode as Stacey gets hyper on who knows what and Iz, still recovering from concussion, has to deal with that level of craziness.

    The girls cover highly important topics this fortnight, from the origins of The Cheeky Girls, to Stacey's Mr's giant birthday list, to whether Daniel Craig is a pouty woman or not, plus lots more in between.

    But fear not, my comic loving friends, for the girls do get their comic on and bust out a load of reviews, from Kick Ass to Fables, Dock Walloper to Maus, plus a couple of non-comic goodies along the way. This is mostly because they couldn't think of a proper topic, but hey, it's all good. During these spoiler-rific reviews Iz proclaims that everything ever is "fucking awesome", Stace brings everyone down and The Racks it's first ever joint Top of the Racks. That's right, folks, there's a comic out there so awesome that it gets the full Comic Racks endorsement! (Go buy it!)

    The regular Rack Music segment sees The Rack Ladies accidentally develop a theme of video game related tunes, though Stace has yet to find out Iz's verdict on her pick this fortnight.

    So sit back, relax, and enjoy a podcast full of random singing, laughs and reviews a-plenty!

  • Comic Racks Episode 15 - Return of the Rackettes!

    11 June 2008 (1:50pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 37 minutes and 52 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Firstly, the Ladies of Rackington would like to apologise to you, the wonderful listening public, for the untimely release of this episode. Technical difficulties and unprovoked front door attacks prevented this episode from being released on time, but trust us, it's worth the wait!

    After several months of being completely rubbish, the girls finally get their act together and present to you their second and rather awesome Rackette, the lovely Marcus Q. Join them in the main feature as they discuss Marcus' comic likes and dislikes, how dyslexia can affect a comic reader and what comic creators and editors could be doing to improve the reading quality of their works.

    During the show, Stacey gets excited several times, on topics such as The Futureheads (oh, will she ever shut up about them? I think not), Jamie Smart and awesome looking Transformers covers. As well as all the excitement there are rants a-plenty as Iz slates her Tail of the Racks, and Marcus addresses a friend who borrowed (read: nicked) some books once...

    Unfortunately, Mr Q departed before the Rack Music and Peeve segments, but never fear! Iz and Stace produce the goods, as they can never let a good rant lie.

    Will Stace disguise herself as Velma to stalk The Futureheads? Will Marcus ever get his books back? Will Iz accept that being "the tits" is, in fact, a good thing? Listen on and find out!

    Enjoy!
