Monday, Monday

Just a quick little link post this early Monday morning, mostly because I haven’t had a second to sit down since last Tuesday-ish. And it doesn't look like I'll have much time to do anything until, oh, let's say Wednesday-ish.

So instead of rushing to squeeze in something forced and contrived, I'll instead post up a link to an interview that has kept me glued to my iPod over the past several weeks.

I've mentioned John Siuntres' excellent comics-centric interview podcast, Word Balloon, before, but his latest series of interviews with Marvel scribe Brian Michael Bendis is exceptional.

Dubbed "The Bendis Tapes," there are currently four parts to this intensive interview posted to the Word Balloon site and up on iTunes.

As I’ve mentioned before on the blog, I’ve written a couple of comics scripts, and certainly have more than a passing interest in seeing how real writers get their work done.

I love reading/listening to creators (especially writers) talk shop--to me, there's nothing more fascinating. So, if you're at all interested in a discussion on craft, or if you just want to get some inside info on Marvel's current projects, I'd suggest giving these interviews a listen.

Just a head's up, though, that listening to the show with young kids in the car may not be the best idea, since there's some cursing and things. These interviews are very much conversational, and it's really just two guys talking comics, movies, TV, and whatever else pops into their heads.

Give it a listen!
