Double Page Spread ep 172- Christmas Classics

Wendi is rejoined by very dear friends, Bill Zanowitz of the "Comic Book Bears" podcast and writer of "The Crimefighter Inquiry", and writer/folk artist Jeff "Bean" Douglas. They have a full and lengthy discussion of the best Christmas comics from Batman, Starman, DC digests, X-Men, Lobo and Disney to name a few. Things take a hilarious turn in their discussion of best holiday songs as Bill explains the history of "Nestor the Long Eared Christmas Donkey" and a favorite album of a drag queen and some mentally challenged children. 

So pull up a glass of eggnog, break open the longbox and celebrate the season as we tell stories of which comic characters are Jewish, tragic deaths of artists who worked too hard and why "Diner" is the best holiday movie.

Please excuse the boomy audio of this episode, it was recorded live from the International School of Comics in Chicago. This is a very special dialogue with artists Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother, Wonder Woman: The True Amazon, Sandman), Jim Terry (The Crow: Skinning the Wolves, Alice Cooper vs. CHAOS), and Maria Wolf Lopez. Separately, the three of them have gone to the Standing Rock camp in ND where Native American Water Protectors are trying to prevent construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which will pollute important water aquifers all across the midwest. They explain the situation from an eye witness perspective, discuss what supplies are desperately needed at the camps, extol on the spirituality and generosity the people and Maria tells us of her experiences at the first Indigenous Comic Convention. 

I hope you enjoy this very serious and enlightening episode. Please go to www.standingrock.org for more current information and ways to help.
