Word Balloon Podcast
On this episode of Word Balloon, Matt Fraction willingly debates the story beats of Fear Itself.
All of the tough questions are asked. We talk about the recent trend of the event story epilogues
occurring outside of the actual series. Why kill Thor, when he just had just been resurrected, and
is it likely he’ll be back in time for next summer’s Marvel’s The Avengers film?
You’ll also hear what’s coming next in Casanova, Iron Man and Tanarus: God Of Thunder, plus an informative preview of The Defenders. Matt expands on what we’ve seen in the Fear Itself epilogue, and how the Hulk hands this new Defenders line up its first problem. You’ll hear details on the team’s line-up, plus Fraction discusses his decision to write this book in a modified Marvel style collaboration with artist Terry Dobson, as opposed to the usual full script.
For aspiring writers Matt goes in detail about the different discipline of writing 20 page issues
compared to the former 22 page comic. It’s more complicated than just cutting 2 pages from each chapter of a story arc.
Then IFC Film Critic Matt Singer joins me to talk about this years slate of comic book films.
From The Green Hornet, The Marvel films Thor Captain America and X-Men First Class, Green Lantern, Cowboys and Aliens, to the coming Adventures Of Tin-Tin movie, We’ll discuss the successes and failures. Plus we preview next year’s slate of comic book movies.
