aka BEE VIXENS FROM MARS!!!!

I’ve added those extra exclamation marks.

Decompressed is a sporadic podcast about comics craft. This time we’re talking to Alex De Campi about writing Grindhouse: Doors Open At Midnight #1 (aka Bee Vixens from Mars). What talk about subjects like 60s-70s cinema, exhaustion, page turns, sex, lettering, poetry, boobs as part of a character design, sex with cats, my existential crisis, awesomely tacky posters, misnumbering pages the Splash-and-reaction and more.
