This episode takes us to the International School of Comics in Chicago, where we meet the graduating class of upcoming artists. They are putting together their first anthology of finished work and have so much enthusiasm and excitement for the medium. They tell their stories, with the encouragement of "art mom" Jill Thompson, about bringing new voices to comics, what this particular school has to offer, and what on earth is a "guinea grinder"? All right here in this very special episode.

Dan Panosian is just a cool guy. He is an artist who has paid his dues for years, working his way up through Image Comics inking people like Rob Liefeld, doing covers for books like "Daredevil" and X-Men titles, pencilling books like "Spelljammer" at DC. He has worked in almost every aspect of comics and is finally ready to bring it all together for himself with the new creator owned book "Slots" from Skybound. A tale of a down on his luck boxer returning to his family and his roots, it draws on classic Las Vegas tropes and new traditions in the glitzy city, delving into the seedy underbelly of MMA and burlesque. Panosian, no stranger to tough guy competitions, is a man who brings his genuine love of fighting to a human story. So join us for talk about Frank Grillo, the evolution of Jumbo's Clown Room, John Steinbeck and a hilarious stripper pole story.

Wendi is joined by returning friends, Dan Pua and Andrew Shaw! Together they discuss the recent crossover event b/t DC Comics characters and Looney Tunes, in particular Tom King and Lee Weeks "Batman/Elmer Fudd", Jimmy Palmiotti and Mark Texeira "Jonah Hex/Yosemite Sam" and Bill Morrison and Kelley Jones "Lobo/Roadrunner" specials. Do these succeed in entertaining on all levels or should they sink like Wile E. Coyote off of a cliff?

Also some MMA chat as Andrew Shaw tells us about his recent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu belt testing, and the gang tries to convince everyone why they should watch the now defunct Frank Grillo drama, "Kingdom".

Since 2011, King Bone Press, the brainchild of Jon Westhoff and Bobgar Ornelas, have been putting out independent, thoughtful work from a variety of creators- the down to earth B-One, the ridiculous monster fighting of Hillbillies, World's Strongest Mailman, Bulletproof Chicken and more. They briefly disappeared off the comic book map, but now, with the help of Jason Ford, one half of The Wombmates and writer of "The Servant", they are BACK! Jon and Jason join Wendi for a hilarious chat spanning years of friendship and some mistaken identity. They've put the band back together and are releasing new books and all their back catalog digitally and they're here to talk about it!
