On this episode of Comics Coast To Coast we talk to Mike Witmer creator of

About Pinkerton: (source: pinkertonpark.com)
“Pinkerton is written and drawn by Mike Witmer. Mike is a movie geek, a tech nerd, a spiffy dresser, and a beer lover. He lives with his girlfriend and their Brady Bunch-style combined family in scenic Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (where he forces them all to labor tirelessly on the heavy lifting with Pinkerton).
His mother is his biggest fan.”
