This week, Chris and Matt are giving in and interviewing each other about their new comics, Down Set Fight and Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective! We talk about how Copernicus Jones started as a parody and turned into something else entirely, how Dog City and Who Framed Roger Rabbit were our introduction to noir, Down Set Fight’s early life as an NFL Superpro pitch, and how cartoony flashbacks actually make a family story work a little better. Plus, more entries in our ever-expanding catalog of Every Story Ever!
