Every Wednesday, I talk about comics with Brandon Montclare, writer of the hit Image series Rocket Girl and co-writer of Marvel’s upcoming Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur series.
We gab about what we’re reading now, what books we consider classics (Brandon loves Dark Knight Strikes Again…), and the hottest gossip of the industry. Occasionally, the inimitable artist Amy Reeder (Rocket Girl, Batwoman) stops by. Check out our full show archive atpodcornpodcast.com.
Number are sexy this week on Podcorn. Join Alex and Brandon as they look into the importance of sales numbers, why publishers willingly obfuscate information in some sectors while simultaneously pulling back the veil on others, and how companies like Image are changing the way they do business to respond to sagging single issue sales.
Intro/Outro music this week is Not Butter by Dillon Francis, from his album Money Sucks, Friends Rule.
