iFanboy Video Podcast
It all began when fan-favorite writer and new Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman posted a video manifesto
calling on more established comic book creators to leave Marvel and DC
Comics behind and make creator-owned comics. That lead to a pointed
response from fan-favorite writer and Marvel Comics mainstay Brian Michael Bendis on the Word Balloon podcast.
And then the comic book internet world ripped in half.
On September 27, 2008 Robert Kirkman and Brian Michael Bendis met
face-to-face on a dias at the Baltimore Comic-Con to bring the debate
in person and in front of a standing room only crowd. They discussed
everything from their own impoverished beginnings in creator-owned
comics to the current sales of their own work to the effect that
mainstream exposure has on independent work. It’s the most talked about
comic book panel of the year!
