a page from Warren Craghead's The Surf and The Face

We make one last special guest co-host episode before Thien comes back, and it's a doozy! This time Rina shares the mic and some quality laffs with Renee French, cartoonist extraordinaire and author of the critically-acclaimed H-Day. In this episode, they get to talk to the one and only, Warren Craghead about inspirations, his unique take on comics and art-making, the drawing process as well as a shocking secret that he finally reveals to Rina about his family history. Also we talk new comics with always-classy Josh Frankel. This is one of our favorites and I'm sure it will be one of yours too! Hear it!
