Jason Bone was comics' golden boy following his very first professional work. The Toronto artist was nominated for an Eisner Award (work deserving of wider recognition) in 2001 for his first comic Solar Stella. His very next project Alison Dare (with past Speech Bubble guest J. Torres) was also Eisner-nominated. Both works drew the attention of the late, legendary Canadian comic artist Darwyn Cooke (DC: The New Frontier, Catwoman) who took J under his wing as his inker until Cooke's death from cancer in 2016.

J. spends much of this episode reminiscing about what it was like to work with Darwyn and the other famous comic pros he has worked with in the past, including Paul Dini (Batman the Animated Series) and Mike Allred (Madman, X-Statix). We then get into why the idyllic pop culture of the 50s and 60s influences his art style and dissect the clandestine gayness of the era. We'll hear about his latest work inking Dan Parent on Archie Meets Batman '66 and his last fully-pencilled work on The Saviors with writer James Robinson (Starman, JSA).

You'll learn that Darwyn Cooke designed and cut together the opening title sequence for Batman Beyond, that Batman '66 is just a secret gay bondage fantasy and what happened when Buckingham Palace said an undead Princess Diana couldn't join a mutant superhero team.
