Episode 39: One Year Later, An Interview with Wendy & Richard Pini
It's been one year since the release of the final issue of The Final Quest. I caught up with Wendy and Richard Pini to hear what the last year has been like, and what it feels like to have concluded Cutter's Hero's Journey, a story 40 years in the telling. The Pinis share their experience meeting fans on their publicity tour, being nominated for an Eisner Award and their insights into Wendy's "animated" drawing technique, Moonshade's death, the Palace's hum, the mythic quality of Cutter's tale, the power of "Once Upon a Time," hints and foreshadowing, clues about what's next . . . and flying meatloaf.
