It’s a slightly shorter episode this week as I’ve just returned from the amazing 2D Comic Arts Festival in Derry, Northern Ireland. You can expect a full report on that soon, but in the meantime I’m pleased to present a very special interview with Dark Horse Comics Editor-in-Chief, Scott Allie.

Aside from being very generous and helpful to the show, Scott is the editor of the Mignola-verse line of books (which he has done for the last decade) and is currently writing the Abe Sapien ongoing series with creator Mike Mignola. Scott & I chat about how he landed the role, his working relationship with Mike, what challenges they’ve faced as the line has expanded, and where they plan to take Abe in future. It’s a fascinating discussion that I hope will be the first of many.
