DISCLAIMER: Once again technical problems have beset the show. I promise to keep these problems to a minimum in 2009.
Ned Cato Jr,
Hey there true believers! We're back with a very special edition episode of the GeekRoundTable. In honor of Will Eisner's comic book character The Spirit finally getting his moment on the big screen this Christmas, we bring to you an episode dedicated to the man himself...Mr. Will Eisner.
In this episode, regular GRT members Ned Cato Jr. and Chris Sturhann are joined by two very special guests...Batton Lash and Jackie Estrada.
Batton Lash is a comic writer and artist. His wrote and drew the series Supernatural Law and has written for Bongo Comics' Radioactive Man series. He also owns a comic company is called Exhibit A Press.
Jackie Estrada is a co-publisher for Exhibit A Press as well as being a book editor and convention organizer. She is also the administrator for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards show that takes place at the San Diego Comic Con International every year.
Both Jackie and Batton were close, personal friends of Will Eisner's and they have been kind enough to sit down with us for a bit to tell us about the man behind so many incredible comic book works. Unfortunately, we did experience a little bit of technical difficulty getting the episode recorded, so there is a bit of static on occasion, but please bear with it. The episode is great and is very informative. All fans of comics should learn more about Mr. Will Eisner, and this is a great way to start.
Without further ado, here is the podcast for your listening pleasure:
