Awesome Comics Podcast Episode 21Awesome Comics Podcast Episode 21: Comics Writer Sam Read

Who better to join the Awesome Comics Podcast crew for a chin wag than the writer of Exit Generation, Sam Read? Sam talks about how his brilliant SF action book came to be, his route into the world of making comics, the importance of editors and gives some great advice to creators just starting out. He also sparks a great conversation about Batman that ranges from classic runs on the book to Batman Forever.

Not only that, but Dan Butcher’s world of trains adds yet more layers of complexity, Vince hunt takes too much enjoyment in saying his own name and Tony Esmondcan’t help but bring up the Dollman movie series into conversation again.

Oh, and the team all love Under Siege. Nuff Said.
