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).
Recently, there was a signing at Richard's Comics and Collectables with writer and director of the Cross movie series, Patrick Durham with some of the local cast members, Sheri Taylor and Jace Schirropa. We discuss what goes into making a movie, specifically the sequel in his Cross series, Cross Wars.
Here comes another installment of our Year 10 - Interview series. She first entered the scene as the "Lovely Shawn Reynolds" but before you could flip the page she became Mrs. Shawn Daughhetee. Adam interviews his favorite wife about her career in comics and the important role the Dollar Bin played in shaping her life. Shawn opens up and tells rarely heard personal stories about her inspiration in Rachelle Goguen, her relationship with her father, and her early days at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find.

Adam and Shawn survived another Small Press Expo (not that it was a challenge) and it was a great experience. In this episode of the Dollar Bin (we call it a review show, but it's not like a "this was good/this was bad review, it's more of a "going over things" type review) they discuss the books they picked up.

It's been a while since our last post and they seem fewer and further in between, but when we post, we are making it count. Case in point, this week on the Dollar Bin, Joel and Adam bring you an interview with one of the principle founders of CrossGen Entertainment, for the first time in over ten years, Mark Alessi. In the interview Alessi shoots straight in an attempt to put an end to the inaccuracies and noise that surrounds him from his day with CrossGen. In an effort to do such, he regales stories of Mark Waid, Ron Marz, Joshua Middleton, Dexter Vines, Scot Eaton, Bart Sears, Joe Quesada, Steven Spielberg, and more.
