Podcast 137: Rough Riders Creative Team Chat

Direct Download (1:43:44)

Listen to this very special episode to find out how cohost George (of the still defunct George and Tony Entertainment Show) was able to initiate a gathering of the creative team of Adam Glass, Patrick Olliffe, Gabe Eltaeb, and Sal Cipriano who are responsible for the Aftershock comic Rough Riders. Thanks to those four talented gentlemen for agreeing to be a part of the show and sharing their thoughts about making Rough Riders, working together, and more. Special thanks to Lisa Wu, Aftershock Comics Fan Relations Manager, for coordinating the whole thing–without her, this would not have been possible.
