Word Balloon Podcast
On this episode of Word Balloon, we begin a 3-part conversation with Ed Brubaker, who made it official a few weeks ago that he was leaving Marvel Comics to focus on film and TV work. His Image comic, Fatale, with longtime collaborator Sean Phillips. In part one, we talk about the first seven issues of Fatale, and some of the subjects Ed is exploring. He tells us why he chose the flashback time periods of the story, and what they represent. We also begin our discussion of where creator owned books are in today’s comic market?
We continue the theme with our next guests writers Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley, as they discuss their Image book Hoax Hunters. Mike and Steve talk about their unique set of characters starting with the strangest astronaut ever called Murder.
It’s interesting and educational to explore the current comic business through the Image prism. We’ll compare the two situations with the high selling success of Brubaker & Phillips Fatale and the strong but smaller sales performance of Hoax Hunters. Both books are enjoying out of the gate popularity, but is everybody quitting their day job?
