Erik (aka Mr. Blahg) and Grace are the co-hosts of Under the
Comic Covers, where they discuss and review independent comic
books. We find out about their podcast origin stories and why they
love independent comic books so much. Erik recalls that he
initially hated the comic book medium because he is a literature
snob, but was eventually converted when he picked up the graphic
novel Watchman by Alan Moore.
