It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here – House to Astonish episode 150, commemorating eight years of chat and waffle from Scotland’s premier comics podcast. This time round, we’re not doing our usual news-reviews-handbook format, but instead tackling questions about what current books we’d recommend, what the most ridiculous stories are that we’ve ever read, the Transformers: Earthforce stories, our secret origin, the concept of the “Reverse OHOTOHOTMU”, our greatest hits, and how we’d remake crossover events. Plus our most punsome Amalgam characters, a spot of House to Astonish Theatre and a feature which we straight-up ripped off from another podcast. As a bonus, we’ve also got the entirety of the House to Astonish vs SILENCE! panel from Thought Bubble 2016, featuring Ryan North, Brenden Fletcher, Emi Lenox and John Allison, for anyone who missed that. All this plus Magazine and Magazine Collecting (the magazine for people who love magazines), fifth-dimensional imp Paul F Tompkins and the Super-Beard.
