Shelly Bond’s tenure at Vertigo Comics poured the foundation for the world of comics that we live in right now. Series that she edited revealed to the world that the comic book medium was capable of delivering numerous types of stories.

Shelly’s Black Crown line of comics showcases her aesthetics at their purest.

Along with covering her past and present we discuss how she edits a script, works with established and new talent, and we both geek out over Bill Willingham’s amazing superhero series The Elementals.

When the concept of PORTRAIT OF AN EDITOR was forming in my brain, I made up a list of editors I really wanted to interview. Louise Simonson was high on that list for a heck of a lot of reasons. Having the chance to speak with her was a great pleasure.

We talked about her early days at Warren publishing, Archie Goodwin’s legacy, editing covers, Star Wars, and Power Pack.

For the first interview of 2019, I caught up with Humanoids' Senior Editor Fabrice Sapolsky.

A year ago I spoke with him as he was settling into his new position as Senior Editor. He hinted a lot at the new H1 line then, and now he talks a bit more about it and its premiere this spring on New Comic Book Day. We talk about the other Humanoids imprints Fabrice oversees, Spider-Man: Noir, the roles of various creators on the H1 line, and how to maintain the passion for a project even though it might take two years for it to see the light of day.

So today I find out what a TV editor does during his workday. We also talk about Tim Truman's SCOUT, having Roger Corman and John Badham for mentors, and not being perfect.
