Greg Rucka Interview on Suicide girls

September 10, 2009

Greg Rucka will always be one of my favorite people. I first interviewed him in 2000 when I was still in college. It was my first “real” interview where it was me and him and a tape recorder. For a variety of reasons, the piece ended up not running (and to this day, every now and again I curse my then-editors for that). I’ve interviewed Greg a few times since for different outlets. We run into each other every couple years and say hi. He’s also married to Jen Van Meter, the very underrated comics scribe, who also happens to be one of the nicest people.

In this interview we talk about the movie adaptation of “Whiteout,” I avoid asking about Batwoman’s sexuality but we end up talking about it anyway and he spills on his next novel and what’s happening with Tara Chace.

Renee Lott interview

August 14, 2009

I think Renee Lott’s graphic novel “Festering Romance” is one of the best debuts of the year. I love her linework and what sold me on the book, because I’m not much of a romance fan, was the tone. Renee managed to balance the light and dark elements of the tale in a very sure-handed manner. I think that and her artwork which reminded me of Andi Watson when I first came across it, will make this the first of a long career. I can’t wait to see what she come sup with next and I got to talk with her about the book before San Diego Comic-Con.
