Here comes another podcast interview, this one with Sal Crivelli of Comic Pop/The Elseworlds Exchange.  We start with discussions of Superman: Red Son and Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons and then wander down a variety of other, interesting roads.

One of the oldest, and best, comic book podcasts out there is John Siuntres's Word Balloon.  I spoke to John recently about animation, comics, old time radio and other things.  The audio version is below... 

Listen to "The Animated Life Of J.M. DeMatteis Superman Red Son Deathstroke Death Adam Strange and More" on Spreaker.

...and here's the video version.  Enjoy!

So very sorry to hear that Marty Pasko has passed away. Aside from his considerable accomplishments in comics, Marty was a very successful, and very gifted, TV writer for (among others) Roseanne and the 80s incarnation of the Twilight Zone. (He was also one of the writers of the classic Batman animated film, Mask of the Phantasm.)

I sold my very first script to the 80s Zone and it was Marty, along with his then-partner Rebecca Parr, who did the excellent rewrite on my script.

I didn't know Marty well, but he was part of our weird, wonderful extended comic book family. All of us in this business are connected, through our work, our mutual friends, our shared passion for the tales of wonder that helped shape our lives.

God bless you, Marty. Requiescat in pace

Just came across this video of a JLI panel I did with the lovely and talented Keith Giffen at last year's Heroes Con.  The sound gets wonky in spots, but it's a nice overview of our run.
