Community | CO/MIX Episode 3

From the outside, the comic book community looks like one big, happy family. A closer look reveals the relationships between the various sub­-communities in Ireland, the nature of the people involved in bringing together the comic book community as a whole, and explores the notion of just how different the Irish comic book scene is to its American counterparts. From drink­-and-­draws at a local pub, to large­scale conventions across the country, to a small port village in Cork, the community in Ireland is spread far and wide.
