On the Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 broadcast, our special guest is published author, illustrator and all around good guy Paul Pate from Michigan.

Paul is the creator and author of Detective Perez, which according to one review, is 'a sometimes one drawback of the graphic novel genre is that the plot has to be simplified a bit, due to constraints of size. Not true here in this debut graphic novel by Paul Pate. In fact the plot twists can get a bit dizzying. Grab a copy and hang on!'

'It reminds me a bit of Sin City. Here, one honest cop takes on corrupt cops, gangsters, rogue FBI agents and maybe even vampires. Or at least they seem to be vampires. Oh yes, and of course there's the obligatory visit to a strip club.'

'Detective Perez is a well done, fully three dimensional believable character. Joining him is a truly original and fun vampire killer named- of all things- "Bubba". I liked Bubba and I hope we see more of him.'

'The art- also by Paul Pate- is a simple monochrome drawing. But the starkness and lack of color actually adds here, rather than detracts.'

'Fun, lots of action and a real page turner.'
