Rico Schacherl is a cartoonist and illustrator, best know in South Africa for his work on the 'Madam & Eve' comic strip. Beyond that, Rico has worked on a wide range of projects including animation, television and children's education work.
Rico joined us to chat about his path to geekdom: from Tin Tin and Asterix to his first exposure to Star Wars through to his mandatory military service, then on to making a career out of his illustration work and the origin story of Madam & Eve.
In addition to graciously taking time out to chat to us for the podcast, it's our pleasure to announce that Rico will be part of two panels at ICON 2016 this year. He'll also be available for book signings as well, so make sure you bring along your favourite panels for the man himself to sign, so make sure you get there!
