Every once in a while, I record an interview I wish everyone could listen to! My talk with Kwanza Osajyefo this week in Episode 266 is just such a podcast! The creator of the gripping comic series Black, published by Black Mask Studios, talks with me about diversity in the comics industry, how the book came to be, how he developed the fascinating concept for this title, and what he has in store for us in the months ahead!  For more on Black, go to this link or head to their website here. To keep up with Kwanza, you can follow him on Twitter. This one is not to be missed!

John was wrong about the Radio vs. the Martians episode he mentioned. It was about Don Bluth and not Ralph Bakshi, but its still a great episode to listen to.

Our next podcast will be Spawn by Todd McFarlane on March 5th.
