  1. Great interviews, Josh. I simply adore the conversation of all had occured during Mr. Schrek’s run in DC Comics. Especially how he got Greg Rucka in comics. Seriously, in my opinion, the biggest achievement Mr. Schreck has done was making sure Kevin Smith’s Green Arrow run was not another one of his typical "one issue per four months, if lucky" situations.

  2. Excellent interview. Bob Schreck is one of the most interesting people in comics.

  3. Great work Josh. What an amazing career the man has had & it’s nowhere near over. So many highlights (my heart skipped a beat when he mentioned Harryhausen & O’Brien!); I could listen to this guy for hours. Again, very well done Josh – I tips my hat to you.
