Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

Extra Sequential Podcast Episode Three

90 mins. New magazines from writers Alan Moore and Mark Millar, novel Eifelheim and Image series The Light, The Phantom and lots of Scott Pilgrim goodness as well as our rundown of best political moments in comics which includes Ex Machina, Cerebus, Lex Luthor as President and voting for the life of Robin.

While people were escaping their suburban existence and voting for the future of our country (Australia), my mate Mladen and I were recording the latest episode of our Extra Sequential podcast. In episode three, we talk about The Phantom (both old and new), everything Scott Pilgrim, our Top Ten political moments in comics, recent Eisner Award winners and more outlandish geeky indulgences.
