Word Balloon Podcast
First, DC Vice presidents Bob Wayne and John Cunningham join us to discuss the monthly numbers, but also talk about the re-tooling of some of DC’s New 52 titles that are seeing creative changes. Will they be enough to boost sales?
Then writer Kelly Sue DeConnick talks about her new series, Captain Marvel. Carol Danvers is getting a promotion and a new monthly series, but the life expectancy for Marvel books that don’t feature Spider-Man or Wolverine isn’t promising. DeConnick discusses the challenge of starting this type of book, plus we talk about her new Dark Horse series with Phil Noto, Ghost, and a new Castle OGN from Marvel coming this fall.
We wrap up with solo talks featuring Art Baltazar and Franco. The duo has just ended the Tiny Titans series with issue 50, and begun their new kids comic, Superman Family Adventures with a preview that was featured in that last Tiny Titans issue. The guys are notorious for clowning when they’re together, but I forced them to talk separately to get a more serious look at the wrap up of their New York Times best selling series, and the challenge of doing a new all ages title featuring Superman.
