Episode 129 – I Love ‘Twins’ f/Joe Hughes September 10, 2012Posted by Matt in : Episodes , trackback
This week, we’re welcoming ComicsAlliance Editor-in-chief Joe Hughes to the show! We’ll talk with him about how he went from being a comics fan to a comic shop employee to a DC assistant editor to editor of a comics news site! Plus, we’ll hear about what he has in store for Chris in the near future, the time he met Mark Hamill, just what an assistant editor does, and much more! And since we won’t be doing full shows the next couple weeks, we’re super-sized!
