Titular Characters

Titular Characters

It's an interview show where we talk to comics and nerd culture media creators about their passions, careers, and creative journies. What fuels creativity? What does creative genius look like up close? What inspires the art and artists that make it? We aim for interviews that crackle with creative energy and excitement. It's about the process, the craft, and the dreams behind the things we love.

They also talked about how we live in a sea of ideas, and how most things are interpretations or re-interpretations of other things we've experienced. The key is to make it interesting.
