Joe gives us a fast-paced and wide-ranging view of comics as he sees them today, and ties it all together behind the idea that collaboration is one of the most appealing and crucial things about comics for him. He discusses drawing as a child, writing as an adult, and broadening his point of view by doing things like working in a comic shop while also creating comics. The result is an excited-but-measured view of the comics industry, and his passion is palpable. When he's not studying every layer of the comics industry, Joe practices boxing, and the lessons from that have proven to have wider applications than just throwing punches.

RAT QUEENS is perhaps best described as "What if modern college girls were transplanted to a medieval fantasy setting?" The titular Rat Queens are hard-drinking and harder-fighting, and as the series goes on, the RAT QUEENS creative team—including Tess Fowler and and Tamra Bonvillain—are moving to increasingly emotional and dark depths.

When he's not working on comics, Wiebe helps run a Twitch.tv channel where he livestreams Dungeons & Dragons games, among other things. You can find the channel at twitch.tv/D20Babe.

Roche Limit, the setting for the series of the same name, is a colony located on the cusp of an energy anomaly in space. The colony has fallen victim to crime and skulduggery of all types, despite being initially founded as a symbol of what humanity is capable of. ROCHE LIMIT begins as a missing persons tale before eventually expanding to explore human nature, sacrifice, and the struggle of living.

Moreci is a big fan of the Criterion collection, a curated set of movies that have been lovingly restored and released on home video with extremely high production values, including both the film and the packaging. He feels that the Criterion symbol is a sign of quality, and makes a great case for that fact.

THE RATTLER features Stephen Thorn. Ten years ago, Thorn's fiancée vanished without a trace, kidnapped by what at first appeared to be a helpful passerby. Now, Thorn is a victim's rights crusader, tough on crime and tougher on criminals. Then, he hears his wife voice coming from the most unlikely place, and sets out on a bloody quest to rescue his long-lost love.

Appropriately, Jason has been a fan of horror movies since childhood, and has paid a lot of attention to what makes horror such an enthralling genre. He recommends a few classics for horror neophytes, and generally speaks highly of a few greats.

THE FUSE is set twenty-two thousand miles above the Earth. It stars a pair of detectives working homicide on an orbiting energy platform that's home to half a million people. As much a sci-fi tale as it is a clever police procedural, THE FUSE blends the new with the familiar and gives you something special. For the latter half of the show, Greenwood discusses his history with fast cars and hot rods, from growing up around them to customizing and losing his own.
