In this week’s episode, we have a special treat as the one and only Joe Casey joins us. After many technical difficulties, we got things recording and proceeded to talk at length about many, many topics. Hopefully, we don’t talk over one another too much. Among the things discussed:
Intros, Butcher Baker, writing corporate characters, Adventures of Superman, Uncanny X-Men, Final Crisis Aftermath: Dance, the craft, the internet and the audience, writing mini-series for Marvel and DC as ongoings, compression/decompression, the work and the reader, Gødland and sticking the ending, frustrations from cancellations, Wildstorm, blowback from interviews, passion for comics, comics vs. TV, actual talk about Butcher Baker, writing about comics, Dreadstar, more writing about comics but in a different way, classic comics, current comics, recapturing old comics, comics Casey is digging right now, too much talk about Doc Savage, Joe Casey thinks this podcast is too long, and one final teaser for an upcoming work.
And it all begins, as usual, with “We’re Hardcore” by Gord Downie. So, download, listen, and enjoy!
