We spent an afternoon speaking with Ryan Griffen, creator of the TV series Cleverman, which mixes the world of superheroes with stories from The Dreaming. Ryan is also the co-writer of the brand new Cleverman comic book, which we reviewed earlier this week in Episode 66. 

We talk to Ryan about his comic book inspirations - and his aspirations to write comics about Aboriginal characters for Marvel and DC. We learn a few things about the second season of Cleverman and the future of the comics based on the show.
