Word Balloon Podcast – The Bendis Tapes Spring 2011 Edition

Show Notes

On this episode of Word Balloon we present another chapter of The Bendis Tapes. You'll hear more about Bendis and Mark Bagley's new creator owned series Briliant, The Death Of Spider-Man story in Ultimate Spider-Man, spoiler-free wrap ups to Ultimate Doom and the first 5 issues of his Icon series Scarlet, his Point-One avengers issues, plus how his Avengers books will tie into Fear Itself and result in big line-up changes for the 2 main Avengers teams.

We get a new TV update of Brian's work on the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series, Powers, and the Jessica Jones series. And as always, Brian takes more listener questions about the craft of writing comics and screenplays.
