John Layman and Rob Guillory at Baltimore Comic-Con

Baltimore Comic-Con 2016 Day 1: Interview with John Layman

On the first day of Baltimore Comic-Con I was able to score two awesome interviews – John Layman and Rob Guillory of Chew. In order to allow them to man their table, I conducted two separate interviews. In this interview we discuss the significance of

From One President to Another: Letter 44
