Episode 5 – Awesome Approach w/ Jeff Parker

We’re just three new kids on the block, swingin’ it, as Jeff Parker stops by to talk about his new title Underground, as well as his experiences working¬† on Agents of Atlas, Thunderbolts, Mysterius: The Unfathomable, Interman, and everything else that he does. We intended to talk about the “Awesome Approach” to writing comics (Jeff’s choice), but really we just ended up talking about MODOK, Yo! MTV Raps, and the history of new jack swing. Also, a surprise guest in the imaginary studio, and Chris and Euge ramble about comics a lot.
