And last year Image Comics commissioned Jacob's first ongoing series That Texas Blood, described as ‘Paris, Texas gut-punched by No Country for Old Men’ created and written by Chris Condon.

We’ve got them together on one stage to explore the father-son relationship in comics and art. Do they influence each other? Does Jacob rebel against or revere his Dad?

We’ll quiz them on each other in a Mr and Mrs-style test, to find out how much they really know about each other’s work, style and life.
