The Write Idea Workshop

Episode 80

This is the last in-person episode of the Write Idea Workshop that will feature Ryan and Justin in the same room for quite a while. Ryan's moving out and special guest DAVE TULLAR is moving in!

In this era-ending episode, Ryan and Justin are joined by Tullar and the three discuss a great deal about writing comics, X-Men, and whatever the hell Justin is doing throughout.

This is a weird one.
