Merlin Mann joins Moisés and John to discuss the X-Men, from reading recommendations and iconic storylines to why they really are so “Gifted” as a team.
- Merlin Mann (twitter, website) co-hosts Roderick on the Line and Back to Work. He used to be that guy who'd talk into his shoe.
- Herb Trimpe co-created Wolverine and regularly attends comic conventions. Seek him out and have a conversation with him. He's one of the kindest, sweetest people you can meet at a comic convention.
- His interview is available uncut as Artist Edition #42: Herb Trimpe - The Human Element
