Cape Town Community Podcast: Ep. 043 “Drowsy Tales from a Con”


Originally published on March 18, 2012.

We were tired this week thanks to two full days at WonderCon! But that didn’t stop us from putting a couple of microphones in front of our faces to bring on the noise and the funk! We’ve got another big batch of new creator-owned titles to discuss and almost an hour of WonderCon stories!
