Live from Appleseed Con in Ft. Wayne, IN its a very special panel with indie comic legend, Jaime Hernandez! He discusses 30 years of creating "Love and Rockets" with his brothers, his artistic style of drawing naturalistically and letting the characters age with the audience, 80s SoCal punk rock and the evolving nature of independent comics. Thank you so much to Zack Kruse for this opportunity.

Known for his DC work such as "The Shade" and "Project: Superman" as well as Alan Moore's "Top Ten", it's time for him to step into his own creator owned fantasy. Which is exactly what he's doing with "Mae", a young adult, female driven story about friendship and sisterhood and strange creatures with Czech names. He and Wendi talk about this new project, how to run a successful kickstarter and the appeal of smart brunettes!

Recently there was an exceptional documentary, "Jodorowsky's Dune", that examined the failed attempt of Alejandro Jodorowsky to create a movie of Paul Herbert's legendary sci fi epic, "Dune". Wendi talks to one of the producers of the film regarding this extraordinary experience that involved such art luminaries as Moebius, HR Giger, Dan O'Bannon and Salvador Dali. Even after the project failed Jodorowsky and Moebius went on to create some of the most imaginitive works in comics- "The Incal" and "Metabarons", as well as creating tremendous impact on films such as "Star Wars".

Brought to you by DCBS, the Discount Comic Book Service, where you can order the new reissues of Moebius' work at deep discounts, as well as all the latest releases at tremendous prices every day!

As well as Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, featuring a new line of scents based on the Jim Jarmusch vampire film, "Only Lovers Left Alive", so you can smell like Tilda Swinton or Tom Hiddleston!
