Episode 71 – Exploring Joe’s Comics with J. Michael Straczynski!

by Chris Thompson

With J. Michael Straczynski …
Following on from last week’s very special new year podcast with the amazing Gerard Way (which you can still listen to here) – I’m pleased to present this new episode recorded live, right here in London, with one of my favourite writers J. Michael Straczynski, otherwise known as JMS!
Joe and I discuss the many and varied comic projects he has going on at the moment, including Terminator for Dark Horse Comics, Twilight Zone for Dynamite Entertainment, and his continuing work on the Joe’s Comics imprint with Image Comics (Ten Grand, Sidekick, Protectors Inc.)
We also discuss his background with comics, what made him become a writer, the pitfalls and challenges he’s faced along the way, and why it’s important to reinvent yourself and your work. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the mind and process of the man who created Babylon 5 and who, at one time or another, has worked with every major character at the Big Two.
