iFanboy – Episode #163 – Stumptown with Rucka and Southworth

Show Notes

This interview was dug out of the vault. Josh talked to superstar writer Greg Rucka and artist Matthew Southworth way before anyone ever got a look at Stumptown, their book about a female PI from Portland, Oregon. There's all sorts of talk about the craft of comics, and a deep look into the process
Stumptown with Rucka and Southworth, part 1

Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth talk describe their Oni book, Stumptown, about a female P.I. named Dex Parios, as well as talk about car chases in comics, page count, and trades vs. issues.

In the second part of our interview, we talk about the writer and artist collaboration, designing Stumptown and Dex's world, and Rucka's predilection for female protagonists.

    Awesome episode.  Rucka is always a great interview.

  5. Spoons Spoons says:

    Matthew Southworth was great too.

  6. IroncladMerc says:

    So it took them 2 years to come out with issue #1? Did you put in the shots of the pages more recently than the interview?

  7. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    It wasn’t supposed to come out for a while after this was shot. But there were delays. I edited this last week.

  11. joeislive joeislive says:

    Is that park slope? Looks like park slope. Then again a lot of places look like park slope to me now…

  12. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @joeislive: It’s not. To me it doesn’t really look anything like Park Slope, to be honest.

  13. joeislive joeislive says:

    like I said, everything looks like P.S. to me now… Is is at least Brooklyn? Give me that much lol!

     

     

  14. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @joeislive: It’s not.

  15. joeislive joeislive says:

    Ah Interesting, I always thought you guys were based in NY?

  16. joeislive joeislive says:

    Although I realize that just because that wasn’t Brooklyn, that does not mean you still aren’t in NY.

    Oh well great episode as always, no matter where you guys shoot! 

  17. Mangaman Mangaman says:

    Wow. You guys are wonderful. I cannot believe you pulled a continuity trick.

    *This takes place between episode 056 and 057. XD

    I wish I could do the same with my comments.

    Great show!!! Still doesn’t negate the fact that this book seriously suffers from inconsistent releases.  Hopefully that will be remedied now that Greg’s out on his own again.

  19. brattyben brattyben says:

    Now I seriously regret not talking to Matt at Floating World where he did a signing.  I was tempted, but, he seemed busy.  Oh well. 

    They really have a great synchronicity that feels really genuine.  I really liked Matt talking about building the apartment and figuring out bits of Dex’s character.  That is the stuff I really like.

    Great interview Josh!  Can’t wait for more of them. 

  20. Devyn says:

    I signed up for an IFanboy account just so I can applaud AM Blastoff for a Wu Tang Clan reference. That kind of made my day.
