Talksplode #69 – Mark Russell

Show Notes

Thanks to iFanboy patrons, it’s Talksplode time. When we read Prez, we were impressed, and when, shockingly, The Flintstones series was discovered to be one of the best and smartest new comics from DC, we had to find out who this Mark Russell was. So we asked him.


Working with cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, Russell released God Is Disappointed in You, and Apochrypha Now from Top Shelf, as well as various other freelance writing, he then found himself with an opportunity to write Prez for DC Comics. We talk with him about that, and bringing that same sensibility to the licensed property of The Flintstones.

  1. Great interview, thanks.

  2. Really smart people having a really smart conversation. Loved it. Also got the audio book for “God is disappointed in you”

  3. You had me at “Frankenberry fan-fic”. Great interview as always. Thanks Josh!

  4. A bit late to the party, but wow, what a cool interview. Russell’s background was not at all what I’d imagined it being – and even his choices for favorite recent comics (Irredeemable and C-3PO!) were an inspired look into his perspective. Now I want to check out his God books.
