DECOMPRESSED 021: AL EWING ON MIGHTY AVENGERS #1

cover

Decompressed is a sporadic podcast about comics craft. This time we’re talking to Al Ewing about his writing on the recent Mighty Avengers #1. Our topics include the problems of writing in a crossover, the marvel method, lettering as dubbing, diversity, class, fair pay for a days’ job, the A-list vs the C-list and lots of ums as we try to avoid fucking up.

Want to read the whole thing? It’s available to buy on your local comic shop, or via Comixology here.
