NEAR MINTerview with Jim Rugg

Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Well, it may be the unofficial last day of summer but we’re celebrating the occasion with a couple of Near Mint firsts.  This is the first installment of coverage from last week’s Baltimore Comic-Con, it’s also our first video NEAR MINTerview.  Ben had the opportunity to sit down with Afrodesiac co-creator, Jim Rugg and he dropped some science on us.  In this 16-minute interview, Jim schools us on the history of comics and the direct market, blaxploitation, and the creative process that went into his amazingly unique work on books like Afrodesiac, Street Angel and Rambo 3.5 (which you can read here for free).
