Word Balloon Podcast
On this episode of Word Balloon, we wrap up our marathon conversation with Ed Brubaker, just as his final issue of Captain America hits the stands. Ed has closing thoughts on his run, artist Steve Epting’s incredible art for this last issue and teases what to expect in his last issues of Winter Soldier. Ed also made Hollywood headlines with two TV pilots getting picked up by NBC and FOX. We discuss both potential series plots and where they are in terms of development.
Then we listen in on two of Marvel’s Next Big Thing press conferences, as creators and editors discuss the directions of several Marvel NOW! titles.
First X-Men Legacy writer Si Spurrier and Daniel Ketchum tell us how mutant David Haller (Legion) finds his place in the X-Universe and deals with the death and legacy of his father, Professor Xavier.
Then writer Brian Bendis And editor Nick Lowe gives the broad strokes of All-New X-Men, as the original 5 X-Men time travel to face their future and the present status of the Marvel Universe.
