Speech Bubble With Chip Zdarsky


Before he was comic industry iconoclast Chip Zdarsky, artist on Sex Criminals and writer on Kaptara, Jughead, Star-Lord, Howard the Duck and Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man (coming: June 2017), he was Barrie, Ontario’s Steve Murray. Growing up as a lonely geek with amazingly supportive parents, including a mother who let him and his brother make fun of his father at will, he would eventually become a cartoonist and humour journalist for The National Post newspaper. Then, an opportunity to watch Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau beat someone up in a boxing match, somehow led to his collaboration with Matt Fraction on Sex Criminals and the rest, as they say, is history … This episode was recorded in front of a live audience on location at Hairy Tarantula in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for their 25th anniversary celebration.  Listen Now!
