iFanboy Video Podcast
Ever wonder what it looks like inside the offices of your favorite comic publisher? Ever think about what it is that an editor actually does? Did you know that DC Comics actually publishes MAD Magazine? This week, we take you behind the walls of DC Comics, and we talk to some of the folks who make the books on your comic book store shelves.
Ron starts out in executive editor, Eddie Berganza's office, where they talk about what the job entails, including how to pull together a massive event like Flashpoint. Berganza also worked on other big events like Infinite Crisis and Blackest Night with writer, Geoff Johns. How he gets anything done in that wonderful office, we'll never know.
Conor takes us into Superman group editor, Matt Idelson's office next, where they discuss the legacy of Superman, books focusing on villains like Action Comics, and what the editor needs to do when a creative team shifts gears as happened recently.
Finally, Josh journeys into the deep recesses of the MAD Magazine offices, where he speaks with MAD executive editor, John Ficarra. They discuss how the legendary magazine stays relevant in the 24 hours news and comedy cycle with the Daily Show and the internet. Ficarra talks about some of the wonderful artists featured in MAD over the years, and they take a trip down the MAD-tropolitan Museam of Art, where low brow is high brow.
Come back next week for even more from the DC Offices.
