On today’s episode of WTF with Marc Maron, our favorite podcast host sits down with a guest who is more proficient in the other type of comic — The Walking Dead creator and writer Robert Kirkman. The two talk about the basics of the comic book industry and Kirkman’s rags-to-riches story of entering said industry by self-publishing his first comics from his home in Kentucky.
Marc’s old friend Bob Fingerman also stops by and talks about Minimum Wage, his comic book series that recently returned from a 15-year break. Marc himself was drawn in as a character in the issue released on July 1st. Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman, Patton Oswalt, David Cross and a bunch of other very funny people are Minimum Wage fans, so there’s obviously something cool going on there. Well, obviously: a caricature of the pent-up Maron rage is captured within its pages.
