Art by Chris Brunner

Artist Chris Brunner is very dear to the Dollar Bin podcast.  He's been with us since the semi-early days and our first appearance at the Charlotte Minicon (It makes me really sad that I can't find this interview mp3, so if you have it can you send it to me?) where we had a fascinating discussion on the effectiveness of a lightsaber on Luke Cage.  Chris has been captivating us over the years with amazing art, like what you can find in the comic Loose Ends.  He has also captured our hearts with his friendship, spirit, and lively, thought provoking discussions.  Thanks Chris.
