In honor of the new NHL season and New York ComicCon 2018 here’s a bonus episode culled from my interview with BOOM! Studios' executive editor Jeanine Schaefer.

September 26, 2018 03:10 PM PDT

Titan Comics editor David Leach provides a history lesson on UK comic books, especially some great behind the scenes stuff about Marvel UK.

In addition to that, David talks about editing humor, the most critical thing he looks for from his writers, and his general take on what an editor needs to bring to the job.

Finally, we talk a bit about the new Blade Runner comic that Titan will be publishing.

The book trade has enabled an explosion of creativity in the comic book medium. So who better to talk to about that other than Calvin Reid who is a senior news editor at Publishers Weekly and editor of PW Comics World, PW’s online coverage of the comics and graphic novel marketplace.

Today I turn the tables on Calvin and question him about prepping for interviews, PW’s relationship with publishers, his stab at comic book editing, and his mission to educate the world about the comic book medium’s potential.

FYI – The title for the David Mazzucchelli graphic novel neither of us could remember was ASTERIOS POLYP (Pantheon Books, 2009).

Continuing with PORTRAIT OF AN EDITOR’s focus on the WHERE WE LIVE anthology, Will Dennis discusses what it took to produce the poignant and vital anthology, his origin story, how New York fueled the comics industry, how diversity has benefited comics, John Carpenter's The Thing, and what about Jason Aaron’s pitch for The Other Side really impressed him and foretold Aaron’s success as a comic book writer.

Continuing with PORTRAIT OF AN EDITOR’s focus on the WHERE WE LIVE anthology, Archie’s Alex Segura covers a lot of ground including how his marketing background informs his editing, how the diversity of the Archie Comics universe fuels the publisher’s unique titles, Dark Circle Comics, and the stirring experience of writing for WHERE WE LIVE.

When I first came up with the idea for this podcast I had hoped I would be able to produce interviews like the one I had with J.H. & Wendy Williams. Their interview not only covered an editors' creative input, technical duties, and the hard work it takes to survive in this world while making a living off comics books but also what comics contribute to our society. With that, we discuss the excellent anthology WHERE WE LIVE published by Image which JH & Wendy created and edited. It raises money to aid the victims of the October 1, 2017 shooting in Las Vegas. A city that JH & Wendy clearly love. We also talk about gun violence, how comics portray violence, and the long-term health issues for the victims of the shooting.

After attending a panel at New York Comic Con 2017 that focused on Valiant Comics, I quickly became a fan. I was aware of the 90s incarnation of Valiant but never read any of those comic books. Though I am thankful the publisher gave David Lapham his first break.

Today, Valiant is fresh yet familiar. Familiar, in that most of its titles spring from an interconnected universe with many actors and a large scope. Fresh because the publisher's characters are multi-dimensional, well-developed and modern. They range from the upbeat, pop culture obsessed Faith to the international puppet master/anti-hero of Toyo Harada.

In March of 2018, veteran editor Karl Bollers joined Valiant. I put him through the Portrait of an Editor Q&A. It was a great talk, and I hope to have him back along with other Valiant editors.

A warning there are two f-bombs in this ep. So… maybe earbuds and headphones…

It’s time to get back to my regular programming with a bit of foreshadowing for New York Comic-Con.

I visit again with Dafna Pleban of BOOM! Studios. We talked about her promotion and what she is focused on nowadays.

We also talk about “what are stories meant to serve” and should editors bother to view or read material that is way out of their realms of interests?

And finally, we talk NYCC vs. SDCC.

June 26, 2018 01:14 PM PDT

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.

June 20, 2018 02:17 PM PDT

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.
