In this dynamic episode of the Why I Love Comics podcast, I, Eric Ratcliffe, am joined once again by none other than Russell Burlingame! As we discuss what makes a good story and many other things. Also, my phone rings and I have a one sided conversation with New Comic Day artist extraordinaire Chad strohl!

In this episode:


Things discussed:
