Every Wednesday, I talk about comics with Brandon Montclare, writer of the hit Image series Rocket Girl and co-writer of Marvel’s 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 at podcornpodcast.com.
Last Wednesday, Black Mask published the first collected trade for We Can Never Go Home, the break out hit series written by Matt Rosenberg. Recently, Rosenberg was named the 98th most powerful person in comics by Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool. Cited as, “by far, the hottest comic book writer without significant work for the mainstream market,” Rosenberg is known for his smart writing skills and fantastic business acumen. His outreach to retailers and fans has been enormous.
Recently, Brandon and I sat to talk with Matt about We Can Never Go Home. We delve into his authorial intent and how certain characters changed because of fan response. We examine the effect that variants have had on his work. Most of all, we have a lot of fun talking about comics. Tune in and you’ll never want to go home (again).
Intro/Outro music this week is Lone Digger by Caravan Palace, from their album <|o_o|> (robot).
