    WHEW! Now that is what I call a Talksplode! Great interview! Love hearing about the inner workings of the comic book industry.

    Always love hearing from Andy Schmidt.  Hopefully he doesn’t lose a lung so we can hear another interview with him.

  3. Jeff Reid JeffR (@JeffRReid) says:

    Well, Andy sold me on 5 DAYS TO DIE. I just ordered it through DCBS. It’s nice that I’ll be able to sit down and read the entire story when my shipment gets to me.

    Great stuff – Schmidt has both the experience & the ability to share it, which is not always a given. And a very good job by you, Josh – it can’t have been easy not knowing if your interviewee was going to make it to the end of the interview! ;) Also, the first time my name has been mentioned on air – colour me lame but that was very cool.

    Great, great show, gentlemen.  Thanks for doing this.

    @josh – Thank you very much for using my question.

    @Mr. Schmidt – Thank you very much for the interesting answer.

    Josh has helped me realize that my username is essentially unpronounceable.  Should I change it?
