iFanboy Video Podcast
Strap in kids, because iFanboy have brought you a lot of San Diego Comic-Con, and unlike most of your bigger media outlets, we're talking to comics people, about comics. This is but part one of three, and we bring you up close and personal with the most talented and interesting names in comics.
Mark Waid is a crafty veteran, and when Marvel needed someone to put a fresh spin on the shadowy and slightly mildewy Daredevil, he answered the call. Only one issue in, and he's already basking in critical and fan praise. Daredevil is fun, and it's about time. Over at BOOM! Studios, Mark celebrated his creator owned series, Irredeemable by releasing a great big Definitive Irredeemable in hardcover, oversized slipcase glory.
Things are looking up for Cullen Bunn. Since we last spoke, his creator owned series, along with Brian Hurtt, The Sixth Gun has been commissioned for a six episode mini-series on SyFy. While that's big enough news, he's also been named the writer on Marvel's new origin series of graphic novels, in charge of Spider-Man Season One. And why not throw in an original graphic novel called The Tooth, about a giant sentient tooth. It's wacky time.
You might know Chad Michael Murray from One Tree Hill, but soon Archaia will release his original comic book, Everlast, a post apocalyptic adventure on a grand scale. You want to know more? That will be here.
Judd Winick is excited. He's excited to be able to talk to Conor about what's happening finally! Here's what we know: Catwoman is sexy, and Batwing is going to be one hell of a ride. Seriously, he's pretty amped about it all.
Joshua Hale Fialkov is polite and considerate. Yet his work can be deeply troubling. His mini-series Echoes was recently released in hardcover, and no one would recommend you read it just before bed. He's also got a part in the new DC lineup with I, Vampire, which he tells us all about. Finally, he's got one issue to convince you to love The Test in this year's Top Cow Pilot Season.
Scott Snyder has come a long way in not much time, and he couldn't be more enthusiastic about his assignments. Moving on from Detective Comics, he's taking the reins of Batman along with Greg Capullo, and he'll let us know what to expect there. Then there's Swamp Thing coming up, which he's loving as well. Finally, over at Image, he's got a creator owned mini-series called Severed, about a creepy hobo. OK, it's more than that, but either way, it sounds fantastic.
He's back! It's Brian K. Vaughan, and early next year we'll see the start of his first new series in years! Joining him on the show, and in creating Saga from Image, is wonderful artist Fiona Staples. There's not a lot to know yet, but if you've read a whole Vaughan series in the past, you know this is going to be great.
Come back next week for more from San Diego!
