Special Edition Podcast
Running Time: 00:01:28:37
Ron Marz has written a lot of comics. Starting out at Marvel, his first work was on a Silver Surfer Annual. Eventually he moved on to DC to create Kyle Rayner, an all new Green Lantern. While on that run, he had to deal with controversy, including fans angry about replacing Hal Jordan (or H.E.A.T. as some were known), as well as the more serious charges of violence against women being depicted in comics by the famous “Women in Refrigerators” protest, as started by Gail Simone.
Later, Ron moved down to Florida to take place in the Crossgen Comics experiment, which was a whole new way of making comics. We talk in detail about what that was like, and all the really different ways comics could be made in an office setting.
More recently he moved to Top Cow, where he’s just completed a 70 issue run on Witchblade concluding in issue #150, out now. He still has Magdalena and Artifacts going strong, as well as Shinku, coming out from Image Comics. We talk about going from big 2 comics to working on creator owned projects later in his career instead of the beginning, as is often done now.
Finally, we chat about Ron’s scripting process, and his use of layouts instead of a full script format, finishing with a bit of behind the scenes process talk.
