Weekly TV Recap (March 14th through March 20th)
This week has been busy busy busy!! I had a couple of days away and then a couple of great interviews with some great comic writers and artists. Including Andy Belanger, Becky Cloonan and James O’Barr please check them out on droidscanada.com. Was kind of a big deal for us considering the PR Dept approached us to do it and we’re talking James O’Barr the creator of The Crow we tried not to fan-boy too bad. Of course this weekend was Toronto ComiCon as well so I had to try to jam almost the entire weeks viewing into like two and a half days. Still recovering from the Con and back to work thankfully its almost two and half months until the next one.
