Jimmy moderated a panel about British comics with UK creators from SelfMadeHero (Rob Davis, Glyn Dillon, JAKe, and Robert Sellers). It was recorded but the sound is not great. We are working on putting up a somewhat ear-pleasing version for an episode. If not, we'll chat a bit about it on next week's podcast. Stay tuned!
