Word Balloon Podcast

Word Balloon – Mark Waid, Robert Atkins, Sam Humpries & Steven Sanders

Show Notes

Today’s show features creators spotlighting their current books, but also giving writing, art, and publishing tips for aspiring creators.

Mark Waid discusses his work for BOOM! Studios and writing Daredevil for Marvel Comics, but he also discusses how he approaches writing established characters, from figuring Superman out to still being uncomfortable writing Thor and Wonder Woman.

Robert Atkins talks about his art on IDW’s Snake Eyes with writer Chuck Dixon and an upcoming original graphic novel with Larry Hama. Atkins also talks about using his blog and social networking to expand his fanbase.

Finally, Sam Humphries and Steve Sanders join us to talk about their controversial sci-fi sex parody Our Love Is Real. The duo self published the comic and discuss the platforms and distribution avenues they took to market and sell their book. Their effort’s got Image Comics attention and the book is being re-released in November, but that version has its own method of distribution, and the guys tell us how their selling process continues to evolve.
