Join Pete and Dave and a special guest for a special Halloween visit to the depths under Kings Reach Tower to revisit the hallowed halls of Scream Comic issues 9-12 from the deep dark past of 1984! Inside Drac goes on the attack, Max sets out a road of vengeance, a Tomb gets terrible, and … oh no Uncle Terry! Not Again!
Join Pete and Dave in a tongue tied episode reviewing IPC’s Eagle issues 108-111 (April – May 1984).
This time, Doomlord returns, Dan Dare does a runner, Lord Baynor goes down, Danny Pike faces The Animal (and 80 stereotyping), One Eyed Jack makes a handbrake turn, and things get “scorchio” on Crow St. All this and more (sorry Fox) – Where Eagles Dare!
Hello again to all our dear listener. We hope you are safe and well, as Peter and Dave dive back into the Eagle archives for issues 104-107 of the 1984 run of the new Eagle comic. This time Danny Pike trains with the Shark, Crowe Street Comp go wild in a very English way, Dan Dare gets the shock of his life, and Manix meets his match. All this and more, Where Eagles Dare…
Hello World! – Pete and Dave are back to review the recent Rebellion releases during lockdown. Along the way we do a spoiler free visit the worlds of the Action, Smash, and 2000AD Sci-fi Specials, before diving into the third (and, for now, final?) installment of the Vigilant comic series, and having a look at Rebellion’s attempts to breathe life into the back catalog.
Join Pete and Dave for a lockdown sidestep for an anniversary audio assessment of the songs about everybody’s favourite space hero (sort of). Featured in the episodes are tracks by Elton John, David Bowie, The Tornadoes, The Mekons, Pink Floyd, The Art of Noise and the Wedding Present.
Enjoy – stay safe, and stay well.
Best wishes from Pete and Dave

It’s April 2020, and beside a lot of other things going on, the original Eagle comic and its most famous comic strip are turning 70. Join Peter and Dave in a short news round-up and commemorative chat during our Year of Dare.
Special focus in this episode is given to our friends at Comic Scene, who dedicate a good amount of the April 2020 iss to the big birthday. The issue is available digitally – but if you can, consider picking up the hard copy with its rather lovely Martin Baines cover art. You can read their blog here:
Also on the blog, check out the links to free issues of Planet Journey and Eagle Flies Again – plenty to read during your lockdown!
And finally, from the both of us – good health, good cheer, and and we look forward to providing more audio distraction for you soon.
Kia kaha, kia ora
Peter and David.
Hello Dear Listener – we both hope you are all safe and well and can join us for our lock-down centenary reviewing 80s Eagle issues 100-103. Inside Dan Dare finally rides to the rescue, the Deathlords face their doom, Danny Pike comes out swinging and we embrace the crazy of One Eyed Jack. All this and more… Where Eagles Dare.

All this and more, including the copyright busting Mousecops – Where Eagles Dare…
Join Pete and Dave for a New Year’s Special – New Year’s 1984!
This time we look at issues 94 to 96 of the 80’s run of IPCs Eagle comic, where we start a new Dan Dare adventure, Doomlord brings down the house, Manix gets a facelift, and Walk or Die crawls to a harrowing conclusion.
All this and more, Where Eagles Dare!
In a desperate attempt to actually get a Christmas special out while it was still Christmas somewhere in the world, Pete and Dave delve into the nightmare world of IPC’s 1984 Scream issues 5-8, and explore a recursive comics morgue with guest, friend of the pod Morgan Davie.
Don’t let it put you off your Christmas pud!
