First up in this double header episode, the esteemed writer and entrepreneur, Sean E. Williams (Fairest, Sensation Comics, Artful Daggers, Vampire Diaries). Comicker is his brand new digital imprint and he brings insight into the modern face of digital publishing, through his background of writing for Monkeybrain and his current work on the groundbreaking Stela app. They talk about the diversity of the creators and stories he's picked for Comicker and what the future holds for print versions as well.

The second half is a chat with the exceptional Joelle Jones. Her Dark Horse comic "Lady Killer" is a sleek and stylish masterpiece that combines her love of meticulous detail and some dirty violence. To say this beautifully crafted retro tale of gender roles and assassination invokes Mad Men doesn't begin to scratch the surface of how cool and fun it is.

Double Page Spread ep 143- Mitch Gerads

Mitch Gerads has made a name for himself as the artist on such military themed comics as "The Activity", "The Punisher" and now DC/Vertigo's "Sheriff of Babylon"- a murder mystery set in the early days of the Iraq war. He discusses how, with writer Tom King, they crafted the look of a very specific time that wasn't heavily documented. Gerads puts emphasis on everything from body armor to tea cups in his own inimitable style. He and Wendi also discuss how they'd redesign cereal boxes, and whether or not he can draw sexy ladies.

It's been over a year since DC shook up the Bat universe with the very youth driven Batgirl and Gotham Academy titles. Co-writer Brenden Fletcher talks about Gotham Academy's recent change in tone as well as it's inclusion of "Batman: the Animated Series" characters and the upcoming "Gotham Academy Yearbook". We also chat life in Burnside for Barbara Gordon and her crew, including the recent wedding of transgender groundbreaker Alysia Yeoh and artist Babs Tarr's fashion and design choices. Recently Fletcher has been writing Dinah Lance's spin off, "Black Canary" and we talk about her place beside the recent comic girl bands like Jem and the Holograms and Spider-Gwen, and his own musical background.
