Longtime comics and Star Trek-novel writer Peter David talks about being a writer, balancing the conflicting expectations of the mainstream comics audience, and why he’s learned to have NO expectations whatsoever of any movie before he actually sees it!
Tim and Brandon give their thoughts on Guy Delisle’s Pyongyang, DVD movie Justice League: The New Frontier, Spider-Man One More Day, and Writing for Comics with Peter David!
Tim and Mulele discuss comics & the Hollywood writers’ strike, Mulele’s comics career, Illustration Friday, and the Spider-Man “One More Day” event.
Brandon and Tim begin a two-part Skype discussion, starting with Dr. Strange: the Oath! Also, Brandon reads from a 1959 Charles Schulz essay on developing a comic and asks Tim about how he developed Spider-Hag!
Starbucks becomes too noisy, so Tim and Mulele evacuate (at 2:44) to a department store stairwell to discuss whether a writer should go ahead with an idea after discovering someone else has already done it. Case in point: Brian Michael Bendis, the return of the Skrulls, and Battlestar Galactica.
