Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned

Niall Flanagan from Secret of the Sailor Madness and Greg Driver from Ace Comicals join us for our Halloween episode. Together we gaze upon the horror of Toei’s 1980 TV movie adaptation of Marvel’s Tomb of Dracula, Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned.

Episode 218 – Top Five Videogame Anime

Week 2 of GREG DRIVER MONTH and we get into our lists of top five videogame anime. Always a high risk of being terrible, between the three of us, we manage to find more than 10 that are actually worth your time. Demons, ghosts, monsters, punching and puzzles all feature in a fun packed Dynamite In The Brain Top Five!

NB: Games Centre Arashi does not actually appear in the episode, it’s an anime about a videogames, not based on videogames. But I wanted Pac-Man in the episode banner.

Episode 217 – Sonic The Hedgehog The Movie

It’s Greg Driver month! Greg joins us every week this month on DITB to get you ready for his own podcast, Ace Comicals, coming soon. First up we discuss the 1996 OVA series turned movie, Sonic The Hedgehog. Based on the first three Sonic the Hedgehog games, in the sense that characters from those games appear in the movie, it presents a new Sonic continuity and setting for the first and last time.

Plus: we get to grips with our histories with the hog, and play a quiz in which Greg and Anthony have to guess the species of various animal characters!
