Double Page Spread ep 105- June Brigman

We also discuss her Supergirl miniseries, Star Wars, the joy of drawing horses, what she teaches her students now and her upcoming cats in space caper!

Jacob Chabot is the artist of Mighty Skullboy Army, Voltron, X-Babies and most recently a series of Hello Kitty comics. He and Wendi have an absolute giggling blast as most of this episode is Wendi's theorizing about the life of Hello Kitty and divulging her knowledge of the lesser known Sanrio characters. So listen to the controversies and outrage of Japan's leading kitty/girl and enjoy!
