Tim, Mulele, and IreneIrene of Studio Revolver stopped through Tokyo recently! In this episode, she chats with Tim and Mulele about displaying  work at conventions, and how conventions are changing.

#428 V for Vendetta

V for VendettaIt’s been over 25 years since DC published the completed story (which had been left hanging several years earlier when the title it appeared in in Britain was cancelled), and (can you believe it?) nearly a decade since the film came out.
