Nice podcast gentlemen.
When Wayne talks about the Black and White explosion, I always thing to myself about the possibility of the recent surge and blooming in the medium of comics as nothing more than a temporary bubble.
Nevertheless, when I think harder about it, the demand seems to be continuous and the production chains have been reduced to the point where there is more often than not a direct relationship between creator and consumer.
