One of these days, I’m going to figure out how we’ve gotten so lucky here at GAR! This week, Glenn and I had the privilege of interviewing the current creative team of the Eisner-nominated and Glyph-winning comic book, Princeless (a big GAR favorite). Jeremy Whitley (the book’s writer) and Emily Martin (the book’s current artist) were kind enough to stop by and talk about their book, teaching comics, publisher Action Lab Comics, and other topics.

As always, you can always get the latest shows and leave comments for us at www.garpodcast.com. You can also listen on iTunes and Stitcher. Tweet Ray at @raycornwall, and tweet Glenn at @monsura. Thanks for listening!

Ever have a case of blabbermouth? Yes, that was me (Ray) this week. I overwhelmed Glenn. Bless him for letting me. After two days of being cooped up in a hotel, working hard, and spending another 6 or so issues in the car, I was looking forward to this podcast. Maybe a little too much, because I was just bursting at the seams…anyway, give it a listen. Please remember to give us some feedback! We’ll take any of the following:

GAR! Podcast Episode 17- So Much Fun, Our Wives Joined In

Hey- this is Ray. Glenn writes the episode descriptions (which means he relistens to the podcast after we’re done, and takes down all the references, and researches all the links and videos, which is MUCH harder than the technical stuff I do. Bless his insomniac heart), but I had to start with this. This episode was a TON of fun to do. We were in a great groove, and throwing in our wives for quick cameos (Glenn’s married to Jenn, and I’m married to CL) on this one just made it more fun. We really hope you like this one, and we thank you for all the support. Take it away, Glenn!
