Episode 46 – Things Get Massive with Brian Wood!

by Chris Thompson

With Brian Wood …
This week Taylor & I go in-depth with three new, and very distinct, books. First up we tackle Adam Egypt Mortimer & Darick Robertson’s Ballistic #1 from Black Mask Studios; then delve into Tommie Kelly’s latest webcomic saga Them; and finally turn our attention to Brian Wood, Garry Brown & Jordie Bellaire’s The Massive #13 from Dark Horse Comics. Plus we give shout-outs to Matthew Craig & Jesse Young, two up-and-coming creators who are doing interesting things.
If that’s not enough I also chat with the man himself, Brian Wood, about his work on The Massive and beyond. We delve into his approach to writing, what interests him as a creator, whether he prefers single characters or team books, and how creator-owned work differs from work-for-hire. Plus we answer questions about his work on Star Wars, which books he’s reading, and what it’s like working on big event titles such as the upcoming Battle Of The Atom from Marvel Comics.
