Steven Universe is one of our favorite cartoons ever and so we were really excited to get to interview them at Comic Con.

I would like to share the sad news with you all, that my godfather, and the longtime manager of my family, Robert Stigwood, has passed away. A creative genius with a very quick and dry wit, Robert »
