Talksplode #78 – Donny Cates

Show Notes

Thanks to iFanboy patrons, it’s Talksplode time.

From deep in the heart of Texas, Donny Cates is Marvel’s newest go-to writer, behind such titles as Doctor Strange, Thanos, as well as the upcoming Venom, and Cosmic Ghost Rider. But that’s not all. Behind him, Donny has produced a whole lot of comic book scripts across almost every publisher in comics, including the creator owned Buzzkill, Redneck, and God Country.

Josh Flanagan discussed the creator’s start from running comic book stores, to going to comic book art school, working at Marvel, and finally, deciding to write comics for a living.

You can follow Donny on Twitter to keep up with everything he’s got going on. Which is impressive

  1. Terrific interview, thank you for this.

    Donny Cates is on my must-buy list, and that’s probably gonna include his take on Venom, a character I haven’t cared about, well, ever. Truth be told, I’m actually excited about it and that’s remarkable.
