Buntport's Jessica Robblee looks back at 100 episodes of tRUNks: A Live Comic Book and forward to the finale

While some kids grow up following the antics of such superheroes as the Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, millennials in Denver with theater-savvy parents have grown up following tRUNks. Buntport Theater's live serial comic book began in December 2005, presenting a show every other week focusing on its own universe of superheroes and villains; each new installment has been based on a book suggested by the audience. The serial show has grown into a beloved tradition for families and people of all ages, but it's finally coming to a close after eight seasons with a three-episode trilogy early next year.

We caught up with co-creator/writer/director/performer Jessica Robblee in advance of tRUNks' 100th episode this Saturday to talk about her favorite moments from over the years and post-tRUNks.
