DECOMPRESSED 009: PAUL CORNELL AND JIMMY BROXTON ON SAUCER COUNTY #6

This week I’m joined by Paul Cornell and Jimmy Broxton to talk about issue 6 of SAUCER COUNTRY, a stand alone issue which applies a lecture-type structure to its themes of the UFO in the modern world. We talk about research, structure, experimentation, subjectivity in visual elements, colouring your own work, interpretation, the power of bleed and lots more. You can buy it from your local comic shop, or online for future-eye-reading.

Also, the first appearance of Chips Zdarsky’s Chip Corner. Yes.

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

Or do you like Embeds? I can totally hook you up.


See.

Our theme tune? Los Campesinos’ We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed.

I swear to Christ if Chip’s Corner does not become a regular segment on this show then you can all just go right to hell.

Also, here some riveting questions Chip could ask upcoming guests:
-If you could write for one Marvel or DC character of your choice, who would it be?
-What can we expect to see in the upcoming story arc?
-How did you get into comics?

And just to reiterate, Chip’s Corner must be an ongoing segment. Must.

Thanks very much for another excellent episode – hearing Paul and Jimmy talk about the process, the give and take of putting together this unusual, fascinating issue, was a delight. Cheers, Kieron.
