On Saturday April 12th the Dollar Bin road crew ventured to lovely Athens, Georgia for the annual Fluke mini-comics convention. It was our first visit to this fine event, but as you can begin to tell from our conversations with Heroes Con Creative Director Dustin Harbin and our friends J Chris Campbell (who created the artwork to the left) and Duane Ballenger from Wide Awake Press, it certainly won't be our last. All that, our thoughts on the event, what little comics we read last week, and yes, even more on this edition of the Dollar Bin.
Since the day we met Jim Rugg at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find as part of the Afrodesiac tour, he has been a favorite of the Dollar Bin. It is funny to realize that over the last 8 or so years, this is the first Dollar Bin vs Jim Rugg interview. Sure, he has made appearances and has been reviewed and talked about in detail, but this is our first in-depth interview with him. Let's see if we can figure out what makes Jim Rugg tick. (I'm disappointed that we didn't get into his "On a Run" diary comics).
