Alyson and Elise McCall (artist behind REBURN, SPY ISLAND and MAN-EATERS) talk about a scene from REBURN Issue #1, which Alyson created and wrote. They dive deep into the creation of a pivotal scene between May and Skye and why they chose this scene to discuss. It's the female gaze on love, intimacy, negotiating trauma in a relationship and more. 

They loved talking about a scene, a comic book page, in such detail. A reminder of how much goes into each panel of your beloved comic books.

A must listen for any comic book fan.
