This interview is a blast from the past but it is still excellent. 2009 is a big year for Robert Venditti with his series The Surrogates on shelves as a hot selling trade, a prequel to that series The Surrogates: Flesh and Blood along with it, and a film based on his comic starring Bruce Willis hitting theatres this week. To top it off at Fluke we had the opportunity to chat with Venditti about comics, Hollywood and more for this edition of the Dollar Bin.

This week on The Dollar Bin Adam and Joel sit down with comic inking legend Joe Rubinstein. What do you discuss with someone who’s worked every major artist and on every major title in the past thirty years? How about everything. Kick back and enjoy the stories and insights of Joe Rubinstein.
Assembled by a random course of events Adam, Joel, and Terence of the Dollar Bin palavered over wine and crumpets. They told great tales of astonishing collections. Pretty much Adam was recently considering picking up some Skottie Young art so he Skyped up Joel and Tee to ask them a bunch of questions about buying original art and recorded the whole thing. Since the recording Templesmith’s first cover sold on ebay after 4 bids at $536.89. Also, Skottie Young’s been confirmed for HeroesCon 2010. I’ve created my own Comic Art Fans page and I’m sure Richard has added more to his.
We reached into the Way Back Machine to bring out one of our funniest and most popular episodes. In December of 2008, Dollar Bin members Adam, Shawn, Ted, and Terence all sat down to have a very thorough discussion of black men in comics. No character is left untouched and the discussion of the hidden meaning of Will Smith’s movie Hancock alone will leave you needing an oxygen tank from laughter.
