Word Balloon Comic Books Podcast

Oct 5, 2010

Time for part 2 of our conversation with Ed Brubaker. We finish up some listener questions, and transition into our usual random discussion about foreign crime films and television that might’ve flown under the general audience radar. We also talk about some of the golden and silver age great moments of forgotten comics. From Gil Kane’s HIS NAME IS SAVAGE, to Johnny Craig’s EC CRIME AND SUSPENSE STORIES and his Warren work on CREEPY and EERIE . We remember the Marvel Black and White magazines , including their PLANET OF THE APES original stories by Doug Moench .

Ed also compares his collaborative runs writing with Greg Rucka on DC’s GOTHAM CENTRAL to writing IRON FIST and UNCANNY X-MEN with Matt Fraction.
