With Maria Norris …
After last week’s episode with Nick Roche & Scott McCloud (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with a brand new segment we’re calling The Real/Fake Geeks. Each month (or thereabouts) Maria Norris & I will create a primer based around a particular company, character or event.
In this first instalment, I interview Maria about her experience with comics – giving you a little background on where she’s come from – then we take a look at Boom! Studios burgeoning Boom! Box imprint and what that entails.
We discuss the ways in which comics (and the associated community) are diversifying, what impact these changes are having, and how companies like Boom! are addressing them – particularly in terms of their mandate to ‘Push Comics Forward’.
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!
