DECOMPRESSED 008: NICK SPENCER ON MORNING GLORIES #21

This week I’m joined by Nick Spencer to talk about issue 21 of MORNING GLORIES, his collaboration with artist Joe Eisma and cover-artist Rodin Esquejo. As well as the specifics of the book, we talk about panel counts, page turns, weighing up how much to expand a moment, treating your work as viable, basic day to day work schedule and more, I tell you, more. You can buy Morning Glories 21 from your local comic shop, or buy it online for sexy digital fun.

You can download the podcast from here. Its webpage RSS page is here. And you can find it on Itunes here.

And Mr Embed is embedded for embed-fans.


If you’re an embed fan, you’ve missed your chance. Back up, you fool.

AND VISUAL AIDS!
