Darrin Bell, of the most excellent “Candorville” and “Rudy Park” joins me to talk about political cartooning, his early days of newspaper work, how he snuck into offices to get his cartoons seen, how 9/11 affected his comics and everyone’s approach, whether Lamont and Susan will ever get together, and his favorite “Star Trek” TV show.  (Hint: It’s NOT “Enterprise.”)   This was one of those interviews you know is going well because at 55 minutes in, I realized I’d barely hit half the questions in my notes!

Check out “Candorville” here, and see him take over the writing duties in the very near future for “Rudy Park” here.  And cry with envy when you find out he can do a week’s worth of drawing in one day!
