Reprint 2008 Steve Rude the dude reflects and looks ahead

On this episode of Word balloon, host John Siuntres sits down with The Dude, Artist Steve Rude, who discusses his return to the worlds of Nexus and The Moth, in his self published line of books, Rude Dude Comics. As The Dude himself says. "I think back at that 10 period of nothing when all the (Nexus fans) kept writing us... there were so many more stories to tell. Internally I kept saying it myself, "this is not right, I have to use all skills I've accumulated my experience and clout to comeback to these characters , and bloody well keep going with them...The people who buy (Nexus) have expectations that every time they purchase something and know what (Baron and Rude) are capable of, they had better not let you down, and that's what's in my mind when I'm drawing Nexus.You're not going to feel horrible when you read my books, you will feel excited and elated and you'll want to see more."The current plan is to finish the Nexus return arc, Space Opera, then release the new Moth arc. "You oughta see what (writer) Gary Martin has planned. It's nuts!" In the interview, Rude discusses how he and writer Mike Baron got together to create Nexus for Capital City Comics, the early influences of Jack Kirby, and Alex Toth on his work, and his view of the 1980's direct market compared to today's comic book landscape. In addition to new stories revolving around his co created new characters Oragami and The Silencer , Rude also wants to bring back romance stories and his own spin on horror, in his anthology book, Amazing Dude Tales .

Reprint Kevin O'Neil Talks Marshal Law and League Of Extraordinary Gentleman 2009

On this edition of the Word Balloon podcast, we present aconversation with artist Kevin O'Neil, to discuss this month'srelease of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Vol III):Century #1 ("1910") drawn by O'Neil and written by Alan Moore.Kevin discusses the background of the story, and his views on past characters likeMister Hyde Mina Murray, the mysterious Orlando, and the Family line of Captain Nemo.His thoughts on the LXG film, and the origins and future plans of his co-creation with Pat Mills, Marshal Law .The interview does cover plot points and setting that have been discussed in other previewarticles and reviews of the book, so beware.Her are some non spoiler quotes from the talk...On the inclusion of Nemo's daughter in the 1910 League."She occupies a great part of the story, and we will follow her in later books."On the process of putting the literary cameos and pop culture easter eggs in a subtle way."We just have to tread a careful line as to how we populate the book..as we proceed with incredible numbers of different characters in street scenesand backgrounds or newspaper headlines ...it's a lot of work, but we realizewe have these Jess Nevins books analyze every single panel and we knowa lot of people who like that it...however if you don't know the references,it won't spoil the enjoyment of the story, it's just another layer offictional stuff going on alongside the main story."

In Memoriam Brian Augustyn 1954-2022

I wish I was replaying this for a happy reason. Stunned by the news we lost Brian last weekend. 2022 has been pretty cruel. Listen to this great conversation with the man who co-created DC Elseworlds. From December of 2018...Brian is here to talk about his Archie 1941 story. It's a poignant realistic look at The Riverdale gang dealing with the uncertain onset of WW2. Written by Augustyn and Mark Waid and drawn by Peter Krause, its a great story. We also discuss the creation Gotham By Gaslight which became the first DC Elseworlds title, featuring a 19th century Batman taking on Jack The Ripper. Brian takes us through the whole creative process including encticing a pre-Hellboy Mike Mignola to the project. Great stories about DC Comics in the late 80s.
