I’m trying very hard to contain my excitement in this episode. Brian K. Vaughan is one of my favorite comic writers and I was thrilled he agreed to come on the show. He was so gracious to spend over an hour talking comics, writing, and collaboration.

I am so grateful to share these thoughtful conversations with humans that I admire so greatly. Brian was kind enough to entertain all of my questions about his childhood, the inspiration behind his stories, and his favorite books and shows.

For those that don’t already know: Brian K. Vaughan is an award-winning writer and co-creator of acclaimed comic-book series including SAGA, PAPER GIRLS, Y THE LAST MAN, RUNAWAYS, and THE PRIVATE EYE. He sometimes writes for film and television in Los Angeles, where he lives with his family and their dogs Hamburger and Milkshake.

Spoiler alert for those that have not read issues 1-54 of SAGA or Y the Last Man.

I’m loving these conversations and hope you are too. If you are, please rate my podcast on your platform of choice and share it with others!
