CBR TV @ CCI: Walt & Louise Simonson Discuss “Thor,” “Superman Retroactive,” IDW’s Artist’s Edition & More
Walt and Louise Simonson spoke with CBR TV during Comic-Con International in San Diego to discuss the current style of decompressed storytelling and how they’ve adapted to the modern industry.
Louise spoke about returning to her run on “Superman: Man of Steel” with the upcoming Retroactive one-shot which reunites her with artist Jon Bogdanove, explaining where the story fits into the original MoS run.
Both spoke highly of the cast and crew interactions when they were filmed as a part of “Thor,” including not being asked to sign non-disclosure agreements.
Walt related his experiences with fan reaction to IDW Publishing’s “Walt Simonson’s The Mighty Thor Artist’s Edition” before discussing the details on how the special, oversized reprint came to be, why he kept the majority of his art rather than selling it and how thrilled he is with the final product.
Walt also discusses his long-gestating graphic novel “The Judas Coin.” Set to be published through DC Comics, the story’s origins as a potential issue for DC’s “Solo” series and its set-up as six short tales featuring DC characters connected by a common thread.
