Phil Hester is a REAAAAAAALLY busy guy. (Don’t believe us? Check this out: http://www.comicbookdb.com/creator.php?ID=1614 ) That’s why it was so awesome that he would take a few minutes and talk to us! The Eisner-nominated Mr. Hester is a very very talented man – he’s not only a helluva writer but a tremendous artist as well! We chat with him about The Anchor (with our pal Churilla), Black Terror, his run on The Darkness, Gen13, Swamp Thing, Firebreather, his relationship with Kevin Smith, being a writer vs. being an artist, Green Arrow AND Green Hornet, and much more.
We get some info on his upcoming work, his dream job, Cartoon Network, and him dissing Cally with the most awesome book dedication EVER. As you will hear, Phil is an extremely nice guy and he loves his comics. Like we mentioned, he’s an extremely busy and prolific guy – so do yourself a favor and go pick up some of his stuff! He rules.
After the wonderful interview, it all goes down the tubes – as usual. We talk about the new Blue Beetle live-action show, Al Williamson (R.I.P.), behind the scenes of the Thor movie, the Walking Dead tv show, the new Spider-Man video game, and more news. Best of all……. Spence impressions! Hooray! Then Spence talks about Batman #700, and him and Cally go back-and-forth with Mike Mignola love/hate. (Well, pretty much all love and some anger about his career decisions – that’s a more accurate description, I guess)
Thanks for joining us!
