Back in March I was fortunate to have dinner with the one, the only Professor Alan Middleton. You know Alan, right? He's the host of the Quarter Bin Podcast and the co-host of Shortbox Showcase and Dorkness to Light as well as being supreme high commander...cultural attache...
You know I'm not really sure. I know it has to do with Latveria and Doctor Doom. Alan loves Doctor Doom. I suppose we all should but Alan works for the guy.
Despite working for a
tin-plated despot supreme and loving leader of Latveria Alan is also one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and we had a lot of fun having dinner and then going to a comic shop and buying cheap books. I recorded our dinner conversation and it's a mix of what we're currently reading and the economic realities of Disney buying Marvel and how small the comic industry really is and whether or not I should look into working for the Latverian Embassy in Atlanta.
Okay. That last part is totally not true but if there was such a place I'd probably work there.
I mean the benefits have to be pretty good.
I'd like to thank Alan for being on the show, for the comics he gave me and for buying dinner.
