Episode 688 - Darwyn Cooke Special

The comic book community lost a great one last week. Darwyn Cooke. The stories of love for the man that followed were endless. He was one of our very first interviews back at San Diego Comic Con in 2005. And in 2011 at Heroes Con, Jimmy sat down with him for a lengthy 1:1. And the final CNI interview with him was at TCAF in 2014. Producer Joe put them all together as a special tribute to hear the still inspiring words of one of the greatest cartoonists to ever grace the page. Jimmy and Joe also say a few words about this astonishing giant of the industry. His work will live on and we sincerely hope more and more people discover it every day. Thank you, Darwyn.
