Word Balloon Comic Books Podcast


Aug 23, 2012

On this episode Of Word Balloon. We welcome back Bill Willingham, who tells why this past San Diego Con is likely his last for a while. He's putting together a fantasy genre based convention in Minnesota, and tell us all about it. We also get Bill's perspective of the current creator owned era, and how he sees the differences between today, and the 80's black and white boom, or the 90's Image Revolution. Of course we talk about what's coming up in Fables and Fairest, and his new Fables OGN Werewolves Of The Heartland.

Artist Gene Ha tells us about his upcoming issues in Fables, and we look back at some of his 2011 work, including the Flashpoint Superman mini series and the New 52 Justice League.

We wrap up with Tiziano DeSantis, the Comics Talent Coordinator for Toronto's Fan Expo, happening this weekend. Tiz gives us an idea of what panels they'll be presenting. We also take a moment to talk about the passing of Joe Kubert and his legacy in Comics.
