  1. awesome. soloman kane was pretty good.

    excellent show guys

  2. It’s official: Mignola’s freaking insane.

    Great interview!

  3. He seemed kind of arrogant to me.

  4. Sweet podcast – I don’t get to catch up on the inner workings of Dark Horse often, so this was great insight as to what’s going on.  Loved the whole piece on Solomon Kane too – now I definitely want to get the book and want that movie over here soon!

  5. I’m really really upset that I didn’t get to be on this one.  That said, these guys did a bang up job, and that makes up for it.  Just as a fan, I loved this.

  6. This podcast was one of the best presentations, I have heard on the site so far. Excellent!!!!

  7. Great show, I’ll have to go back and re-listen to pick up on everything that was discussed (no more listening to podcasts while watching the NFL playoffs)…
