It's time to welcome the unsung hero of comic book creative teams: the Letterer.
And this week we're bringing on letterer extraordinaire, Ryan Ferrier! (It doesn't hurt that he also writes kick-ass comics, including D4VE and the upcoming D4VE2 from IDW.)
Ferrier spoke on the Bleed podcast about how he broke into the business, how the role of the letterer compares to that of a film editor, and how lettering his own comics benefits his writing style.
But that's not all, because he also brought the original work from Norwegian cartoonist Jason, the poignant graphic novel Hey, Wait...
Ed Brisson joins the podcast next week to discuss how he was inspired by the seminal Spidey story, Kraven's Last Hunt! We'll also discuss his work on books like The Mantle, Sheltered, and Cluster! (Plus, this guy letters comics, too! WAHOO!)
This week we are kicking off a new year of the Bleed with Fabian Rangel Jr., writer of Space Riders and Doc Unknown! Rangel Jr. has had an amazing 2015 and looks to capitalize on that success with MORE WORK! But before that he wants to geek out a little.
So that’s why we are reading a comic from some of his favorite creators, John Arcudi and James Harren and their new Image collaboration with Dave Stewart and Chris Eliopoulos, Rumble!
Next week another Black Mask talent joins the fray in the form of talented writer and letterer Ryan Ferrier! We’ll be reading and discussing Hey, Wait! by Jason.
While at San Diego Comic-Con Joe met Jeremy Konrad, contributor to the Mos Eisley Comic Port podcast and Bleeding Cool. They covered the Lucasfilm panel at Hall H.
It was magical, just in case you haven't heard, and this is the episode where Jeremy and Joe gush about the experience. And because we are still a comic book club, they used this opportunity to check out the flagship titles from Marvel's relaunch, Star Wars and Darth Vader!
Both books have amazing creators charting the new adventures: Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Laura Martin, and Chris Eliopoulos plot the Rebellion's story while Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca, Edgar Delgado, and Joe Caramagna handle the Dark Lord of the Sith.
Next week sees rising star Fabian Rangel Jr. join the podcast to discuss Image Comics' Rumble by John Arcudi, James Harren, Dave Stewart, and Chris Eliopoulos (again!?)!
