Seeing no one could attend New York Comic-Con this year and I couldn't get my usual short interviews, I'm reaching out to some of the folks I know I would have talked to that weekend.
In this episode, I have a great talk with friend of the podcast and Boom! Studio's editor extraordinaire, Dafna Pleban. We cover Seven SECRETS and THE POWER RANGERS and talk about how vital Darwyn Cooke's THE NEW FRONTIER is to her when editing superhero comics.
Finally, I get what Dafna thought of the GODFATHER TRILOGY, which she just saw for the first time.
In this new interview, I talk with Bis Stringer Horne, whose credits include comiXology's EDGEWORLD and FUNNY CREEK. We talk about the importance of empathy, the excellent Thought Bubble Festival, comiXology, and their mentors, Will Dennis, Chip Mosher, and Tula Lotay.
In my second conversation about Titan's release of "The Cutting Edge," I talk with Titan editor, Jake Devine, about the steps he took to become an editor, Marvel's "The Ultimates", the status of Statix Press, and, of course, "The Cutting Edge." Remember, it is available for pre-order this month through Diamond's Previews.
Mario talks about his work and how it has evolved over the years and his love of Spider-Man. We also talk translations, especially the English translation of The Cutting Edge for Titan Comic/Statix Press release. Remember, The Cutting Edge is available for order this month.
Here's a quick catch up with Eduardo Ancer, editor on Aztlán, which is wrapping up a Kickstarter campaign in the next twenty-four hours.
It's fully funded, but they're trying to get to 1,100 backers to release that incentive. Check it out at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aztlan/aztlan-graphic-novel
