Cory was introduced to Jayro’s work on the episode of Kray Z Comics and Stories where they discussed artist who need more attention, and was blown away by his work. It’s unique, interesting and shows influences from outside of comic books and more from 90’s animation. Jayro himself is an interesting person as well, driving himself to work on his art while keeping a full time job because he3 is driven to create.
You’ll be interested in his story and his art as you get to know more about him in the far ranging interview.

I told someone earlier this week that while I joking call myself and my podcast a National Treasure, but Liz Safian Berube is the Real Deal and is a bona fide National Treasure. She worked as a colorist for Archie and DC, her own comic strip and countless pages for the DC Romance comics. I sit down with her to talk about her life, her art and all sorts of other things. Most comic book fans don’t know a lot about the type of work she did, so settle in and listen to one of the most interesting people I have ever talked to. I hope you think so too.
Michael Allred is a Legend in comics. No, that’s not hyperbole, he was in the group Legends after being in the comics business for 4 years, and he has created some of the best comics of the last 20 years including Madman, X-Statics, FF, iZombie and the current Silver Surfer series. In this episode, he talks about how he got into the comics business, his career before comics and his artistic works outside of comics as well as stories about series he has created and worked on.
