Troy and Tyler have known each other for almost 10 years! The details of how they met in real life may frighten the weak of heart, but also tells of a tale of trust in strangers that ended up becoming life-long friends!
Today we bring you our interview with THE MAN himself, Darryl Banks!
Our BossMonkey sits down with Darryl at the 2016 Gem City Comic Con to talk about how Mr. Banks got into drawing comic books, and some of the inspiration behind his most famous creation, the Green Lantern Kyle Rayner (Troy’s favorite Green Lantern)!
“At first, I was extremely nervous and shy!” Troy says about the interview. “But after we got started, and Darryl was telling me about how he fanboy’s out over meeting his favorite artists, it helped me realize that he was a fan just like me. Only he created Kyle Rayner.”
We must also apologize about the audio quality of this episode. Shortly after the interview started recording, one of the mics on our Tascam went out. We hope that does not take anything away from the enjoyment of this awesome interview!

10 years after the end of the Prequel Trilogy, we have a continuation of the Star Wars that we all know and love. But, was it any good?
Anyone who knows anything about me will tell you that I love both Star Trek and Star Wars. When J.J. Abrams was going to be directing Star Wars Episode VII, I automatically feared the worst. What he did with Star Trek hurt, and knowing that he was now in charge of the other half of my childhood love was enough to almost send me into a panic. He has said in many interviews that he wasn’t a fan of Star Trek and that Star Wars was his first love. But, words are cheap… Would he deliver where George Lucas failed with the prequels? (more…)
