Word Balloon Podcast – Ed Brubaker: Part 3, Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan

Show Notes

We continue our marathon conversation with Ed Brubaker about his upcoming departure from writing monthly Marvel Comics. Brubaker looks back at his lengthy run on Captain America and the creation of the Winter Soldier, plus we look back at some of his work at DC Comics including his work on both Batman books and the revamp of Catwoman.

Then we welcome comedians Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan as they start their run writing Deadpool next month as part of Marvel Now!. They talk about collaborating with interior artist Tony Moore and cover artist Geof Darrow. The guys are longtime comic fans and they gush about this opportunity to do a lengthy run on The Merc with A Mouth. Although they promise humor in the book, they also can’t wait for readers to check out their general stories and action scenes. From Meltdown Comics evolution into a full time LA comedy club to Posehn and Patton Oswalt’s 2001 Comedy Central pilot Super Nerds, which also featured Duggan and Sarah Silverman, we also discuss the convergence of alternative comedy and the comic book culture.
