Double Page Spread

Jim Terry is the artist for "The Crow: Skinning the Wolves", the first new Crow series involving James O'Barr in years. He joins Wendi and artist Hilary Barta (Simpsons, Spongebob Squarepants) in a dialogue of philosophies to inking, the history of 3D movies, Lee Marvin, that time they insulted Dean Stockwell, and so much more. It's a fun banter between 3 friends on the reverence of cinema and comics and the emergence of a new talent as Terry releases his first major book.

For the very first episode of Double Page Spread, Devin Bruce of the "Scotch and Comics" podcast skypes in to chat and make soup with Wendi. We talk about why we're compelled to podcast about comics, whether certain books still hold up and shopping in Canada. And make a tasty cheddar and beer bread as well.

This is the first episode and I was experimenting with mics and Skype recording, so I know it's a little noisy at times. Thanks for bearing with me! I didn't realize my chopping could get so loud.
