What’s this? Two episodes of Scotch & Comics in one month? Has the world turned upside down? No, it’s just a special treat for your birthday. In this sixteenth episode of Scotch & Comics, your intrepid host Devin R Bruce braves the sub-zero temperatures of his patio to enjoy Richard Stark’s Parker: The Score by Darwyn Cooke, in an effort to raise the profile of the upcoming Graphic Content screening. Fueled by a choice cigar and a flask of Ballantine’s Finest, he attempts to use the feeble English language to describe the transcendant nature of this work of comics art. Scotch & Comics: a podcast that’s worth at least five hundred words.
- Graphic Content is at the Metro Cinema on February 19th at 6:30! You should come!
- Burlington Tobacconists is the place to go if you’re in Edmonton and want a cigar. Just saying.
- The word of the day is, apparently, spectacular!
- Music for this episode is Crescent by John Coltrane, which was released in 1964, the year The Score is set. Sometimes I plan things!
