In this episode Wendi goes to Aw Yeah! Comics to celebrate the release of Oni Press' "The Life After" with writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Gabo! They discuss the new book and it's concepts of spirituality and purgatory as well as his previous work on "The Bunker" and "I, Vampire". Then he makes suicide sound very appealing.

Next is a conversation with Mike Federali, organizer of Tidewater Con, an upstart comic convention in Virginia Beach. He's an energetic, enthusiastic proponent of really making comics part of the community for everyone. He's assembled this convention with guests like Sam Huntington, Joel Hodgson, Pop Mahn, Nancy Collins and more. In the wake of SDCC it's interesting to hear someone from the other end of organizing discuss cosplay issues, the evolution of artists alley and what the real logistics are.
