In the second "issue" of the show, Moisés welcomes guests Meghan Murphy (Kawaii Not), R Stevens (Diesel Sweeties), and Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Ghost, Avengers Assemble). Between them, we discuss webcomics, gender roles, and the sleazy sexuality of Matt Fraction's Doctor Strange.

Meghan Murphy created and self-publishes Kawaii Not, a 4-panel weekly webcomic that has been around since 2005. R Stevens (Richard Stevens 3) has been making Diesel Sweeties, a robot romance webcomic with ultra-charming pixel art, since 2000. Kelly Sue DeConnick has been writing comics for years, starting with the adaptation of manga to English, 30 Days of Night: Eben & Stella, and various other works. One of the big rising stars in comic writing, she is now writing multiple series at once between Marvel, Dark Horse, and her first creator-owned title for Image.
