My name is Pat Loika.

I'm a writer, illustrator and podcaster based out of San Diego, CA. I also dabble in photography and way too many other activities to list.

This is where I do my personal blogging, with random thoughts, nonsense, art and photos.

 

Brian Michael Bendis returns to the show as we talk about the aftermath of Battle of the Atom! We go over the story behind the crossover, and talk about what comes next for the X-Men. We then touch upon Guardians of the Galaxy, Powers, Ultimate Spider-Man and Brian’s other projects. We even throw in some process talk in the mix. Plus, we talk about artists, cosplay, and Brian reveals a new project.
