The Guardian: Interview with Ales Kot

Last week saw my interview with rising star Ales Kot published at The Guardian, where we tore into new horror noir Wolf and the very angry Material, particularly on matters of systematic racism.

“My honesty gets me in trouble,” Kot allows, “but my take is that if they can’t handle me at my realest, they don’t deserve to have me anyway. Which maybe sounds privileged, but it’s not – I turned down plenty of gigs when I had nothing in my bank account and was very sick, without a home, staying at my friend’s studio, not knowing what to do, or where I would be in a month, or if I would even be alive. Turning down work that does not feel right continues to be crucial for my attainment of the kind of career and life that I want.”

The Independent on Sunday: Cameron Stewart Discusses Fight Club 2

Earlier this month I travelled through to Glasgow to sit down with the ridiculously talented Cameron Stewart, writer of Batgirl, creator of Sin Titulo, and artist of the highly anticipated Fight Club 2.

"I have to be the one to do this," Stewart recalls thinking, when he heard that Fight Club 2 was moving ahead with Dark Horse Comics. "I ended up doing a three-page adaptation of one of the closing chapters of the novel..."

SciFiNow: Interview with Kelly Sue DeConnick

A great interview with Kelly Sue DeConnick, a look at the return of Captain Marvel, and chatting about the popularity of the Carol Corps.

The crazily busy writer was kind enough to give up some of her time to answer some questions on all things Carol Danvers as the character makes her spectacular cosmic return!

SciFiNow: Interview with Frazer Irving

A great wee interview with artist extraordinaire Frazer Irving in this month's issue (#90) of SciFiNow, about all things Annihilator and Uncanny X-Men.

Annhilator is an upcoming title from Irving and Grant Morrison, the dynamic duo that brought you Seven Soldiers: Klarion the Witch Boy and a stunning arc of Batman & Robin. Irving delves into the design of Morrison's psycho sci-fi, and reveals how working on the title really did mess with his head.

Irving's run on Uncanny X-Men was a childhood dream come true, and a major success with fans and critics alike.
