European Comics from a North American Podcasting Perspective

Tired of all the crossovers? The reboots? The retcons? Looking for something new?

Welcome to the world of Franco-Belgian comics, a.k.a. les bandes dessinees, or “BD”.

The Pipeline Comics Podcast covers this new world of comics, alongside Augie De Blieck Jr.’s unique perspective on the world of North American comics.

New episodes are published whenever I record them. They tend to run around 10 minutes. There are no guests.

Think of this as the commentary track for It’s a place to workshop ideas, comment on the current scene, and talk about all aspects of European comics, along with a healthy dose of North American topics. I just can’t help myself sometimes.
