DECOMPRESSED 019: BETTIE BREITWEISER AND MATT WILSON ON COMICS COLOUR

Decompressed019cover

Decompressed returns, with a difference. This time we’re talking to Bettie Breitweiser and Matt Wilson, two of my favourite colourists about their work, primarily related to FATALE 14 and WONDER WOMAN 20. If there’s any one part of collaborative comics’ creative engine that is underdiscussed and misunderstood, it’s colouring. It’s always been important, and in the last decade, it’s only become more so.

You can buy Fatale 14 and Wonder Woman 20 from your local comic shop, or digitally. Fatale is here and Wonder Woman is here.

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

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

Love both of these books. Colours have gotten so much better, both in the technological and artistic sense, over the past couple of decades that it surprises me colourists aren’t getting more credit now, their role has become much more important imo.

Tune wise I was thinking of this song from The Besnard Lakes, Colour Yr Lights In http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJSBm8M4hBg
