Word Balloon Podcast – Jeff Lemire, and Nunzio DeFilippis & Christina Weir

Show Notes

On this edition of Word Balloon, writer Jeff Lemire talks about his work on current and upcoming comics. You’ll hear about his current runs on DC’s Animal Man and Frankenstein Agent Of S.H.A.D.E . Jeff tells us about the excitement coming in his Animal Man/Swamp Thing crossover with Scott Snyder, and why he’s chosen to leave writing Frankenstein, and handing off the book to Matt Kindt with issue 10.

Jeff is leaving the monster team book to take over Justice League Dark with issue #9. He discusses the new team members and the more adventure based direction for the book. What makes this book and team a “Justice League series” are the questions Jeff tries to answer, with his choices of where the stories are going.

We also talk about his upcoming Top Shelf OGN project, The Underwater Welder.

Then Nunzio DeFilippis & Christina Weir talk about their Oni Press series Bad Medicine, a supernatural police procedural drawn by Christopher Mitten, which debuts as Oni’s Free Comic Book Day entry in May. Plus, we talk about some young adult comics they’ve made with female heroines, like the high school baseball story, Play Ball from Oni drawn by newcomer Jackie Lewis, and a newly re-imagined and designed Avalon Chronicles Vol 1 drawn by Emma Vieceli.
