CBR TV @ NYCC: Joe Quesada on the Artistic Process, DC Comics’ New 52 First Wave & More
Marvel Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada made his regular visit to CBR TV’s convention headquarter during New York Comic Con where he spoke about his eventual return to comics as he teased recently through his Twitter account, though he kept the details to himself save for it occurring in April 2012 if the timing works out. The COO also discussed the fact that despite his time as a professional, he still finds challenges in facing a blank page, why he enjoys sharing his artistic process with fans via Twitter and his hopes that aspiring artists can draw inspiration from him pulling back the curtain and revealing the work behind the finished project.
Joe’s thoughts from Comic-Con International on DC Comics’ New 52 were revisited, with Joe giving kudos to the marketing campaign DC put together in support of their relaunch, the response by retailers and readers alike to the first month of titles and his hopes for the entire industry in the months ahead.
Quesada also discussed the “lost” digital Daredevil comic he produced for Marvel.com with Kevin Smith in 1998, the still-changing digital comics landscape and his fascination with moving the technology forward, the expanding influence of Clark “Agent Coulson” Gregg across the worlds of Marvel Studios and Television and what it might mean for Marvel Comics in the future and more.
