Orbital in Conversation Episode 135 – The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

With Jon Schnepp & Holly K. Payne …
 
Following on from last week’s chat at the pub with Black Mask Studio’s Matthew Rosenberg (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back with Jon Schnepp & Holly K. Payne, the filmmakers behind the incredible documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?
 
During a live Q&A held at Orbital Comics, we discussed how the project came to be, what they learned along way, how it impacted them both personally, and what else is coming up as the film nears release.
 
And never fear, you can still enjoy the Pop Culture Hound back-catalogue right here, as we continue to put out the same quality interviews and discussion with Orbital in Conversation going forward. It’s only gonna get better, folks!

Orbital Comics Presents: Gotham Academy Director’s Commentary with Becky Cloonan

mellowyellow

Orbital Comics is proud to present the first in what we hope is a long line of “Director’s Commentaries”, recorded live in our Central London Store.

In this series, comic’s creators take us back to the drawing board, peeling back the layers of the finished page to reveal craft, method & story genesis, along with some cool Easter eggs along the way.

Of the 4 commentaries that we have hosted so far (featuring Jason’s Aaron & Latour, Chip Zdarksy & Mike Carey), the first that we are delighted to bring you is Becky Cloonan’s commentary for the first arc of Gotham Academy, which you can find in stores this week!

If you enjoyed this, stay tuned for more great videos from the store, and in the meantime, why not subscribe to our great podcasts: The Orbiting Pod & Orbital in Conversation? You can find out more about them here.
