The ramp-up to San Diego Comic-Con 2018 continues. This time I talk with Alex Donoghue Humanoid who was one of POE’s first victims.

Luckily, he still likes me just enough to answer some questions about Humanoids’ plan for SDCC2018, their Eisner nom for Deconstructing the Incal, their new release of Madame Cat, and even a hint of their plans for NYCC 2018.

In my ramp up to San Diego Comic-Con 2018, I’m revisiting a few editors and discussing their plans for the con.

A few months ago BOOM! Studios promoted Bryce Carlson, so we catch up on that, Disney buying Fox, launching imprints, and his Comic-Con plans.

In my conversation with Allison O'Toole, we talked about editing colorists. During that, I realized how little I knew about the art of coloring comic books. I’ve always appreciated what a colorist contributes but never really understood the mechanics. Now it’s time to get some details on how they bring the B&W art to life.

I dug into my contacts list and reconnected with Charlie Kirchoff.

We reminisced about our days at Humanoids, what an education it was working with Guy Davis, how he got the Dr. Who gig at IDW, how to succeed in networking as an introvert, and editors.

“Hard work” and “Being kind” seem to be Barbra Dillon’s running themes for editing Fanbase Press comic book series. It has paid off with various nomination and awards including an Eisner nom for Best Digital Comic for QUINCE.

In my interview with Chris Ryall, we talk about his unique journey to becoming editor-in-chief at IDW, his work with John Byrne, how he finds time to write and get a hint of what he’s doing at Skybound.

Christa Faust, Walter Hill, Meghan Abbott, Duane Swierczynski, and Mickey Spillane... If you like in crime fiction, you've probably heard those names before. Now they are making crime comics for Hard Case Crimes comic book line.

On this Portrait of an Editor, Charles Ardai delivers the low down on how the line came about, how he works with Titan Comics, and what the line will be publishing shortly.

Freelance comic book editor Meg Lemke has a stack of plates spinning. She's Publishers Weekly Graphic Novel review editor, editor-in-chief of Mutha Magazine, chair of the Brooklyn Book Festival comics and graphic novel programming committee, a consultant for the French Comics Association, and a bunch of other roles.

In addition to all of that, she also provides us an informative insight into what it takes to be an excellent assistant to a lit editor and how it can jumpstart a career, a great story about Harvey Pekar's work on Best American Comics, and during the lightning round reveals a couple of her favorite bands.

Traditionally a comic book editor is "the boss" on a series. He or she represents the publisher and has approval powers over every aspect of a comic book's production.

Therefore I've always wondered how an editor's duties on an Image comic played out, especially when Image makes sure a title's creators have the last word on creative decisions.

In this Portrait of an Editor, Sebastian Girner provides some answers. Also, among other topics, we have a great talk about what it's like to make a living and plan a future as a freelance editor.

In this episode of Portrait of an Editor, I switch gears and interview Chris Thompson who is a Brand Manager for Titan Comics. He provides his POV of editors.

We discuss how marketing and editorial work hand and hand (or at least should). Chris also covers the launch of the Titan Comics imprint Statix Press, the politics of deciding what cover to use, his hopes for the direct market, and The Death of Stalin.

In this episode, Francis talks with freelance editor Allison O’Toole. She works for the Canadian publisher Chapterhouse, editing books like The Pitiful Human Lizard, Northguard and Captain Canuck. She also has worked on a few anthologies for TO Comix Press.

She just released her horror anthology Wayward Sisters. I got a chance to read it and recommend that you check out this beautiful and eclectic anthology.
