Jill Thompson at the Cherry Capital Comic Con 2018

Jill Thompson is a multiple Eisner Award winning artist who’s work includes The Scary Godmother series, Beasts of Burden, Magic Trixie and Wonder Woman: The True Amazon. Seriously, her water color art is amazing. Of course, we talk about the Scary Godmother and Beasts of Burden. We also talk about manga, anime and pro wrestling. Being the huge wrestling fans that we are, we talked about pro wrestling for a solid half hour in this interview.  I must note that we had to pause the interview while a young man and his father came up to the table to talk to Jill. Per Ms. Thompson’s request, the interview is left completely unedited. This was a wonderful interview and I hope that you check it out.
