IN THE ORBIT OF DAN FOGLER & BROOKLYN GLADIATOR

Welcome to another instalment of our interview podcast. On this episode, we talk to actor Dan Fogler, the star of Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, Fanboys and Fantastic Beasts: The crimes of Grindenwald, which is due out later this year.

But Dan has another life! One where he’s the writer of comic-books such as Moon Lake and now Brooklyn Gladiator, the story of a man experiencing a spiritual awakening in the midst of a future where there is no privacy and all the conspiracies you ever heard are true.

Brooklyn Gladiator, published by Chapterhouse, is an intoxicating mix of oppressive reality and matrix-esque fantasy, that recalls 2000 A.D. and Heavy Metal. Paul and Liz talked to Dan on a recent visit to London, where we discussed his comic-book and film influences, his film career, future plans and working with J.K. Rowling.

We only have a limited stock of this terrific book in store.
