On this episode I talk to my friend Jared K. Fletcher. He’s a letterer in the comics’ industry getting his start on staff at DC Comics years ago. He’s worked on many comics and a lot of modern classics like DC: The New Frontier, Batman Year 100 and new stuff like Southern Bastards at Image. He’s also an accomplished designer designing a lot of the modern logos for Marvel Comics hot titles. We talk about a lot of our thoughts on the business of comics and the mind state of the people within it. We then trail off on talks about Akira Toriyama and Legos.
