Following on from last week’s episode with Adam P. Knave (which you can listen to here) and my recent, curiously related, film podcast (which you can listen to here) I give in to fate to chat with writer/artist Greg Ruth (Freaks of the Heartland, Conan: Born on the Battlefield, The Lost Boy).
Greg is someone I’ve been meaning to speak with for a long while now and it seems the universe was somehow in agreement as the stars (and our schedules) finally aligned for it to happen this week.
We discuss how he got started, the way fine art differs from comic art, why we need more comics for kids, and what he’s doing to address that. Plus we delve into his long-awaited next project with Ethan Hawke (Indeh) which will finally see release in the not-too-distant future.
To get in touch, send feedback or submit projects for consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you missed last week’s episode (or any others) you can find them right here or subscribe via iTunes.
