Didn’t Expect This on ‘Fresh Air’: Terry Gross Talks to Steven T. Seagle

Yesterday I was driving home, and I hear the familiar voice of Terry Gross on NPR announcing her guests for the day, and the first guest was comic book writer Steven T. Seagle, promoting his graphic novel, It’s a Bird…. Gross speaks with world leaders and big celebrities all the time, and maybe it was a slow day, but here’s a comic writer talking about a book which isn’t even that big of a deal in comic terms. Nice work, Seagle.

Seagle comes off as a little high-minded about his work, but I suppose all writers should be afforded that luxury of attitude, especially when he’s basing a Superman story on a personal story, as you’ll hear when you listen.
