A fan can be described as a collector of objects or things. By that token, you could call Jeff and Rick fans of Power Pack. And what better things can we collect but interviews with the creators that have made the series what it is. In the past this has included the two original creators, Louise Simonson and June Brigman, as well as some of the more recent caretakers of the series, Mark Sumerak and Jeremy Whitley. To be true collectors, we really needed to get one more.PowerPack house ad 600A4rev

It was such an honor to sit down with someone who we admire and respect to talk about comics.  It was also an amazing experience to instantly lose control of our interview by having the guest interview us about our families. What began as an interview with a solid list of questions, quickly turned into a chat between three guys about anything and everything.

Who is Jon Bogdonove? He is a husband and father who will talk to you about how amazing his son is, and how much he loves his wife. He is a fan boy that lucked out and fell into doing works that he loves. He is a friend and student to some of the greatest comic legends the world has seen. He is a great story teller.


Jon also is someone who has nothing but respect and love for Weezie and Walt Simonson. And if you want to find out why, you should probably listen to our episode.

  1. Oh yes. Oh yes. Oh YES! What a great interview! His secret origin for breaking into comics and Power Pack was insane! That had to be my favorite story. And I always dig a serious cheese answer! Loved it and greatly anticipating part 2! Well done, my Pack-man!

  2. So the end of 63.5 had me tearing up, with Jon mentioning his wife, son, Walt and Weezie, “and this is Jon Boganove saying, Costumes off.” The same thing happened after Weezie’s and June’s interviews. Dang it, guys! Congrats!

    1. Dang, has two weeks gone by already? I guess it has. Glad we can bring a grown man to tears, that is what we are here for….terrible tag line for a podcast, “Listen to us so that you can have a good cry…and also hear us talk about some super-powered children with space horse powers.”
