 DECOMPRESSED 024: AN AUDIENCE WITH ED BRUBAKER AND SEAN PHILLIPS

Recently, I was asked by the great GOSH comics whether I'd be interested in hosting an audience with Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips about their work together. As if I was going to turn that down, eh? And they let me record it to play to you lot.

We cover everything from their earliest work together, to the hardest scenes in the latest issue, from working with colourists, who really is a tracer, taste, storytelling choices in the Image age versus the grids, adding or removing panels, teasing and more.

Show notes here.

DECOMPRESSED 023: DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL COMICS EXPO "COMICS ARE FOR EVERYONE" PANEL

Decompressed is a sporadic podcast about comics craft. Rather than our usual format, this is a recording from the Dublin Internation Comics Expo. All the paneling was excellent, but we got special permission to run this one, as we were all buzzing about it. Go follow DICE on twitter to get updates about when the rest go live (and follow them on facebook too). It’s the Comics Are For Everyone panel, which is basically us discussing diversity. Who is talking? Jordie BellaireBecky CloonanPaul Cornell,Emma Vieceli, yours truly and Declan Shavley.

The topic is enormous. We race to include as much as we can, and fail badly. Ideas come rushing out. People put positions forward that by the chat after the panel they’ve changed their minds about. It’s fluid, but fluid like lava. As I was on this panel, I moved between from red hot anger to complete and utter love for everyone who’s ever lived.

Listen!
