Word Balloon Comic Books Podcast


Oct 5, 2012

We continue our marathon conversation with Ed Brubaker about his upcomig departure from monthly Marvel Comics. Bru looks back at his lengthy run on Captain America and the creation of the Winter soldier, plus we look back at some of his Batman work at DC including both monthlies and the revamp of Catwoman.

Then we welcome comedians Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan as they start their run writing Deadpool next month as part of Marvel Now! They talk about collaborating with interior artist Tony Moore and cover artist Geof Darrow. The guys are longtime comic fans and they gush about this oppurtunity to do a lengthy run on The Merc with A Mouth. Although they promise humor in the book, they also can't wait for readers to check out their action character and plot writing chops for the series.

We also discuss the convergence of alternative comedy and the comic book culture. From Meltdown Comics evolution into a full time LA comedy club, to Posehn and Patton Oswalt's Comedy Central pilot Super Nerds which also featured Duggan and Sarah Silverman.
