This is the first LIVE Dork Forest. In Seattle, before a live audience, I talked with Ed Brubaker and Kermet Apio . Ed is a multi-Eisner Award winning writer of many of the comic books I read. I dork out about HIM a bit and we talked movies and comics and politics and television. It was awesome. Kermet is a great comic (winner of the Great American Comedy Festival) and you should go watch him do it a lot.
