Zub on Word Balloon – The Comic Conversation


John Siuntres and I had a wonderful in-depth conversation about my career and the changing face of the comic industry. It’s one of the most extensive interviews I’ve done and covers a lot of ground I haven’t tread elsewhere. It is quite long, so I put together a breakdown of what subjects we cover in case you just want to zero in on a few sections instead of listening to the whole thing.
