Episode #297 features the return of scripter Jeff Parker, who I had the privilege of interviewing during the recent Baltimore Comic-Con! We talked about his work on the excellent Future Quest comic for DC, and how much he enjoys writing the various classic Saturday morning characters including the Herculoids, Space Ghost, Birdman, Mightor and Jonny Quest. He talks his favorites as well as what we might expect from this title in the near future. Since I’ve talked with Jeff before, I thought I’d include that interview in this episode as well. At that time, Jeff was working on Aquaman and Batman ’66 for DC Comics, and he talked about how he landed those gigs, among other things. I also chatted with him about his other work, including Underground, a fascinating trade paperback! Don’t miss this Jeff Parker spectacular!
