Double Page Spread

This episode kicks off with a Free Comic Book Day preview from artist JK Woodward of his new book "Star Trek:The Next Generation- Broken Mirror", which depicts a "Mirror, Mirror" universe representation of the Next Generation cast. Written by frequent collaborators Scott and David Tipton, the first issue is available free on May 6 at your local comic shop.

Then Wendi is joined by the creative team behind the much heralded DC comic "The Flintstones". Part of the recent Hanna Barbera line, this reimagining of Bedrock's famous family depicts the changing society of the paleolithic era- from the angst of the armadillo bowling ball to Fred and Barney's time in the war. It captures existential dilemmas in a surprising fashion for a cartoon comic. Writer Mark Russell and artist Steve Pugh discuss their new interpretation and style and how they got away with something so daring, as well as what Russell has in mind for his new Snaggletooth comic.

Gregg Schigiel is an artist who is part of the vanguard of new all ages characters in comics. Currently working on "Spongebob Squarepants", he is the creator of "Pix", a book about a teen fairy princess with superpowers trying to navigate high school. He tells us how the book fits in at Image, why he prefers to call them "kids books" over "all ages", the greatness of the NBC show "Ed", his legendary 90s Marvel Spider-Man comic "Fastlane", and working for Marvel during bankruptcy. He's also an avid podcaster with two shows- "Stuff Said" and "Cruisin Together", which leads to extensive Tom Cruise discussion as well as his unrelated hilarious analysis of "Rosemary's Baby". A lively and amusing episode to be sure!
