Marvin Law’s first few years as a comic fan were pretty traumatic. As a single digit age kid, he watched Batman beat Superman to a pulp in Dark Knight Returns, his favourite character, The Flash, died in Crisis on Infinite Earths and he read Watchmen way too early. Meanwhile, his father who trained in Wing Chung Kung Fu under Ip Man at the same time as Bruce Lee, exposed him to Hong Kong comics. All of it influenced Marvin’s later career as a comic artist. Somewhat of a local legend in the Toronto comic book scene as a script doctor. He once mentored artist Adrian Alphona (Ms. Marvel) on how to layout the first few issues of the critically-acclaimed Runaways as the editor-in-chief of the now defunct Bright Anvil Studios. These days he is drawing self-published indie comics like Kronk the Neanderthal with writer Phil McClorey and now Zip Kramer. Thanks to a special in-studio appearance from Zip writer Sam Noir, the two discuss the genesis of the project, which is now looking for funding on Kickstarter until May 11, 2017. This Episode is sponsored by Hairy Tarantula.
