A conversation with writer John Ostrander!   We chat about breaking in at DC during the Legends crossover; the influence of socially conscious writing by Denny O'Neil- and vegetarian dinner with Denny; and real life, philosophy and imagination.  We dig into some of the themes that inspired John on Firestorm; his teamwork with Tom Mandrake; and as a bonus, talk a little about staying true to the nature of The Spectre, a Golden Age hero with a very specific tone.
