It’s a special DINTERVIEW episode! That’s Dinner + Interview = DINTERVIEW! Thanks to Becky Cloonan for that. You guessed it, it’s another podcast dinner where Jimmy sits down with some cartoonists over dinner to talk comics. While in Toronto for TCAF, Jimmy was joined by Paul Pope, Becky Cloonan, Glyn Dillon, and Monica Gallagher. They discussed the ins and outs of comics. From what they use to draw, the process of cartooning, their approach to the medium, digital vs. print, inspirations, influences and so much more! They even all got a bit silly at times and there may even be some singing and about 5 attempts to end the podcast. It’s a bit lengthy as they were having such a grand time. Jimmy turned on the recorder and let it go for 2 hours! Not only do you hear the cartoonists, you’ll hear the background noise, the waiter taking our orders, our food arriving, clinking of our silverware, etc. So sit back and be a fly on the wall for an exciting, informative and fun 2 hours of comic goodness with some of the best in the business! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
