This week Taylor & I turn our attention to the highly-anticipated Jupiter’s Legacy from Image Comics. Will this be Mark Millar, Frank Quitely & Peter Doherty’s legacy, or is it just another flash in the Millar pan? Find out why we were so divided in our opinion.

Plus we take an in-depth look at Paul Tobin & Colleen Coover’s charming new Eisner-nominated series Bandette – and give a shout-out to Gregg Taylor & Dean Kotz’s Mask Of The Red Panda – both from the exceptional folks at Monkeybrain Comics.

If that’s not enough, we also chat with writer Kurtis J. Wiebe about his work. Kurtis & I discuss the pitching process, why the writer/artist relationship is so important, how writing comics can lead to some unexpected places, and what the future holds. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the writer’s journey and what happens when you ‘get there’.
