DON’T MISS: Defenders #1 with Matt Fraction

Show Notes

Running Time: 00:18:50

It’s been years since we’ve see a Defenders ongoing series, but Marvel plans to change that and they’ve tapped Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson to launch this unlikely super hero team. A modern take on the concept of the Defenders from back in the day, this new team consists of Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, Namor, The Silver Surfer and Red She-Hulk. Fraction talks with us about his approach to the team and the story that spins out of Fear Itself that brings them together, as well as expands on his recent move to writing Marvel style with artist Terry Dodson.

  1. Why do I have a feeling this was a difficult interview in that Fear Itself has just finished and we somehow have to get interested in yet another Matt Fraction property?

    But great interview, you managed to get pass the slog and get something worthwhile out of this.

    • @TheNextChampian- I picked up the same sorta distracted vibe with Fraction.

      Ron was a trooper who sounded like a passionate comic book reader who genuinely had an interest in the subject, but Fraction, for much of the interview, seemed ‘tired’, as if he ‘had’ to write this and ‘had’ to do this interview. Perhaps it was Fear Itself fatigue.

      Either way, I’m looking forward to picking this up Wednesday!

  2. Hrrmm… I like that song. Gonna have to check them dudes out. Thanks for having similar tastes, Ron.

    Great interview. From hearing Fraction talk you can tell he has real interesting takes for Strange and Red Shulk. I’ll be getting this one Wednesday.

  3. Probably sounded like he didn’t want to do the interview because of all the wonderful things Ron had to say about the last thing he wrote
