Fantastic converation show. If you want to hear an intelligent conversation with some of the best creators in the field you're not going to find a better show. John's interview style is great and he is able to get the best out of his guests. Check out The Bendis Tapes, any of his converations with Matt Fraction, Mark Waid or Greg Rucka to get a good appreciation for what this show is all about. If you like comics, you'll love this show.
