Word Balloon Podcast – Robert Kirkman Fan Q+A

Show Notes

On this edition of the Word Balloon podcast, we've uncovered a lost Q&A session that focused on the subject of creative tips for newcomers. Writer Robert Kirkman recorded this on a sleepy August night, but answered many WB fan questions about starting out in the comics business.

We discuss the merits of creating a series bible, versus a story by story approach.  What goes into creating characters?  Is there a definitive end story for Walking Dead in the back of his mind? Plus Robert talks about collaborating with Todd McFarlane, and his views on creating a comic property for the sole purpose of getting a Film or TV deal.
