    This week, David and Rylend discuss the finer points of crowdfunding, writerly research, and “truth” in comics/movies with screenwriter/graphic novelist Steven Peros (Stoker and Wells) and 4-time Eisner nominee Billy Tucci (SHI)… and the group wrestles doughtily with a question that has plagued great minds since 1969… who was the better Darrin on Bewitched, York or Sergeant?
