Double Page Spread ep 75- Paul Jenkins

Last year writer Paul Jenkins (Hellblazer, Spectacular Spider-Man, Sentry, Wolverine, Hulk), wrote a notorious open letter about DC bullying their creators and why he was leaving the big 2 to work for BOOM!. Wendi checks back in with him to see how he's going and what results is an off the cuff dialogue on treatment of creators, the perils of working in movies and the best X-Men story you'll never get to read.

He currently has a kickstarter for his book Fairy Quest 2 going on right here.
