RevengerAdAt the NICE comics convention in Bedford last weekend, Chris Thompson talked to Ian Churchill for an hour and a half. Towards the end, he touched on The Revenger, his new comic with Jonathan Ross, as the complete opposite of Marineman. With Jacobean influences, 1970s influences, its original title was Frankenstein 90210. And he may like to work on another idea with Jonathan, “set in Florida with giant animals”…

Chris says;

Aw yeah, we’re back again! Following my last interview with Art Baltazar & Franco (which you can listen to here) and my first film podcast (which you can listen to here) I went along to the recent N.I.C.E. convention in Bedford where I conducted a panel with Ian Churchill (Marineman, Hulk, Supergirl).

We discuss how Ian broke into the industry, what comics and films influenced him as a child, how his style has developed over time, and what made him take the plunge (pun intended) and dive into creator-owned comics with Marineman.

To follow it up, we spent a little time after the panel discussing what he could say about his upcoming book The Revenger with Jonathan Ross, and addressed the status of the long-awaited Marineman Volume 2 from Image Comics.
