Episode 72 – A Call To Action with Fred Van Lente!

by Chris Thompson

With Fred Van Lente …
After last week’s fascinating chat with JMS aka J. Michael Straczynski (which you can listen to here), this week I turn my attention to the talented Fred Van Lente to discuss his creator-owned work on Action Presidents, plus his continuing run on Archer & Armstrong for Valiant Entertainment!
Fred & I discuss how he first broke into comics, his fascination with history, what advice he’d give up-and-coming creators, and what’s next now that he’s tackled the history of comic books, philosophy and presidents. It’s an action-packed show, and there’s still plenty more to come!
