It's a complete honor to talk to world-renown Canadian cartoonists, Chester Brown, who is one of the cartoonists who inspired both Thien and Rina to start making comics of their own. They talk to him about his new book, Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus (Drawn and Quarterly), about making honest and heartfelt autobiographical comics, and a once-possible Chester Brown Batman comic(?!?) Listen to it! Interview starts at the 22:00 minute mark. It's a great hour and a half talking to one of our comic artist heroes. We also talk about new comics with Josh, brilliant artist Darwyn Cooke, recent comic events such as TCAF and Linework NW and Free Comic Book Day! Enjoy!

After a 2-year "hiatus", the Comix Claptrap gang is BACK! We kick off the season with a great interview with Tim Hensley about his latest comic "Sir Alfred," a humorous homage to Alfred Hitchcock and a stunning example of the publishing prowess of Alvin Buenaventura who passed away shortly before the release of this book. We talk to Tim about his inspirations, his meticulous comics process and working with Alvin. Also Rina, Thien and Josh celebrate the new and exciting comics coming out this year.
