663986_1343766f389d7b02a97ece92412c53c209feba14After last week's chat with Descender's Dustin Nguyen, followed by Beast Wagon's Owen Johnson & John Pearson (which you can still listen to here), this time I'm back with Nick Roche (Transformers, Monster Motors, New Warriors) to launch the Irish Invasion exhibition in the Orbital Gallery.

Nick & I discuss the burgeoning creative scene in Ireland right now, how he first started out in comics, the perils of being 'typecast' as a certain kind of creator, and where he sees himself going next.

Then, as an extra bonus, I present my Q&A with Scott McCloud from his signing of The Sculptor earlier this month. We delve into his approach, what the book means to him, and how it feels to be putting out new sequential work for the first time in many years.

And never fear, you can still enjoy the Pop Culture Hound back-catalogue right here, as we continue to put out the same quality interviews and discussion with Orbital in Conversation going forward. It's only gonna get better, folks!
