The two guests who join us are Jeremy MachPerson and Daniel Best two budding detectives in realm of Australian comics. In this podcast you will learn all about Peter Chapman.

Did you also know that he created over 400 comics and created artwork from the late 1940's all the way until the 2000's? That is nearly 60 years of professional work behind him. No wonder many see him as the grandfather of the comics scene in Australia.
