Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #197 - With Special Guest CPS: Child Possession Services' Jon Westhoff
We are thrilled to welcome writer Jon Westhoff to our little dog and pony show! We discuss his latest book CPS: Child Possession Services for which there is an active Kickstarter campaign in its last few days. If Jon’s is a familiar name to CBB folk, it likely is because of his past as co-publisher at King Bone Press and as one of the heads of the Earth 2 Podcast Network that we were once part of. Apart from being a writer, a writer, Jon is also a letterer and a lover of Kenny Rogers impersonators. CPS was co-created by Jon’s collaborator of over a decade Bobgar Ornelas. Bob and Jon are teaming up once again to bring CPS’s Connie Dhar - social worker for supernaturally possessed kids - in her first full length story to print! In addition, Jon joins Bryan, Steve and Bill in our regular round-up of our favorite funny books.
