Special Edition Podcast

Talksplode #56 – Chris Schweizer and Scott Chantler

Show Notes

Running Time: 01:30:04

We’ve got a special Talksplode for you today, featuring two fantastic cartoonist/graphic novelists, talking about their career and making comics, and doing all ages and historical comics.

Chris Schweizer is the creator of the Crogan’s series of books, and the recent third volume, Crogan’s Loyalty about a branch of the Crogan family during the American Revolutionary War.

Scott Chantler is a Canadian writer and artist with a fantastic body of work from Northwest Passage to Two Generals to the Three Thieves series of all-ages adventure books, as well as others.

Both artists work in a historical context, and draw in a “cartoony” style. The conversation veers across both of their careers and their thoughts of working on large projects dealing with real history, among many things. It’s a long, freewheeling conversation that covers lots of ground that’s fairly different from the path of most creators from the Marvel/DC world.
