Special Edition Podcast
Running Time: 01:44:14
This is a very cool episode of Talksplode. We’ve got Blair Butler of G4′s Attack of the Show and writer of the upcoming Image series, Heart, and Charles Soule, writer of 27, also from Image Comics, but we’re not just going to be plugging books. Along with Josh Flanagan, also a comic book writer looking to get published, the discussion is all about making comics, breaking in, getting started, finding artists, and the real things involved in the process. From marketing to design to scripting to page layout, we cover a lot of ground in this lengthy and diverse discussion about what’s it’s like to make professional, independent comics today.
Part of the discussion was based on this piece, Making Comics: Why I’ve Failed So Far.
Make sure to follow Blair and Charles on Twitter for updates on their comic book adventures. You can also go to Blair’s website and Charles’ blog. To read some of Josh’s comic work, you can find that here.
Look for Heart from Blair Butler and Kevin Mellon in November, and read 27: The Second Set, in shops now, both from Image.
You can also read the first issue of Dixon’s Notch, written by Josh Flanagan on Graphicly.
