Next up is legendary creator Steve Orlando discussing DC’s The Unexpected. Things wrap up with Sam Humphries (back again), this time with artist John Timms talking about their upcoming run on DC’s Harley Quinn, among other things!

As always, special thanks to Charlotte Sandler from BH Impact and the folks at DC Comics’ publicity as well as the people from IDW and Image! Next week, even more SDCC interviews! You’ll find the sequence and times you can hear each interview during the podcast below:
