In the wake of recent stories about convention organizers not regarding colorists as real artists, Wendi sits down with colorist Elizabeth Breitweiser (Winter Soldier, Secret Avengers) and penciller Mitch Breitweiser (Captain America: Patriot, Captain America: The Chosen, Planet of the Apes cover artist). It's an in depth conversation of the skills and abilities of the craft of coloring, innovative ways to create original art in a digital world and the perseverance it takes to break in comics.

A 2 hour conversation with Evan Dorkin (Dork!, Milk and Cheese, Beasts of Burden) veers from snarky Q&A to love of character actor David Patrick Kelly to sincere dialogue about anxiety and depression. Evan is a creator who never holds back on his opinions and provides genuine insight to the industry. PS- every time we make fun of "V/H/S" we are referring to the horror anthology film, not the video format.

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.
