CHRISTINA BLANCH TALKS THE DAMNATION OF CHARLIE WORMWOOD: A DYNAMITE INTERVIEW ON BLEEDING COOL

Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment



Almost a month ago it was announced that the Thrillbent webcomic The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood by Christina Blanch, Chris Carr, Chee and Troy Peteri was being collected byDynamite. Now Byron Brewer caught up with Blanch and asked about the transition from digital to print and how it might change things.

Damnation01-Cov-IncenChee

BYRON BREWER: Christina, how did Damnation of Charlie Wormwood make the jump from Thrillbent to Dynamite?


CHRISTINA BLANCH: It’s all thanks to Nick Barrucci of Dynamite. We were chatting at a con and we started talking about the book and he asked when it was coming out in print. I told him we were printing one issue of it just so I would have something to sign at conventions and he was surprised that I hadn’t taken it somewhere. He and I then talked the next and it all just happened. It was amazing, and Dynamite has been wonderful to work with – we couldn’t ask for anything better.

BB: What is it like producing a book for Thrillbent vs. a more mainstream company like Dynamite? Can you explain the process difference to the reader?

CB: The biggiest thing is that now we know that it will be in print so we well keep that in mind when writing and when Chee is drawing. However, we still want to give readers the digital comic experience on the screen so we aren’t really changing too much. The big difference is in the production – taking the pages or the screens as we call them at Thrillbent and turning them into print pages. Our editor Mark Waid has been great in helping to do that and we are learning as we go. I’m sure we will get better at the transformation every issue.Damnation01-Cov-Francavilla

BB: You and Chris Carr have written the property for Thrillbent. Will you both be on the miniseries, and if so how do you share those responsibilities of collaboration?

CB: Nothing will change. The whole creative team that we have on Charlie is so integral to the book that we don’t want to change things. Our creative process is pretty simple but has changed over time. The first few issues we wrote together, in the same room, working through all of it. As time went by and schedules got busier and busier, it was harder to be in the same workspace. We have worked out an outline for each issue and one of us will write the book, the other will approve it, and then we send it to our editor Mark, ho then send it to our incredible artist Chee.For the uninitiated, tell us the concept of the book.wormwood_issue_01Charlie Wormwood is a teacher in the correctional education system aka prison. He isn’t thrilled about it but job in education are not easy to get. He also happens to have a son who has been in and out of the hospital and they really can’t figure out what is wrong with him. With bills piling up, Charlie is offered help from an unexpected source. This is the story of how far someone will go to help their child and how that journey changes that person. I don’t want to give too much away. People have said it has a Breaking Bad vibe which I have to take their word on because I have internationally stayed away from that show so I don’t subconsciously put in a similar storyline. When the book is done and that makes me sad, it will be nice to have Breaking Bad to watch as a treat.

BB: The book is very dark, from what I understand. How do you keep the emphasis on what sacrifices Charlie is making for his sick son?

CB: I’ve heard the book is dark. Some of our readers send me notes asking why I hate Charlie. I don’t hate him. He does have some bad luck. But, the book is called the Damnation of Charlie Wormwood.

Though Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on hiatus for another month, information about its return is beginning to emerge.

Entertainment Weekly reports that when the show resumes, it will still be dealing with the ramifications of the winter finale in an episode called “Bouncing Back.”

According to the episode synopsis, Coulson is more determined to track down Gideon Malick and cut off all the heads of Hydra. Meanwhile, Daisy and the others encounter “more Inhumans who have powers like they’ve never seen before,” but it is unclear if they will be helpful or a hindrance.

No mentions is made, however, of the creature from Maveth.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns March 8th on ABC.

Non (Chris Vance) and Astra (Laura Benanti) seem to be at odds over the fate ofKara (Melissa Benoist) in the next Supergirl. Astra gives specific orders that Kara is not to be harmed, so Non uses something called a Black Mercy which he says she has everything her heart desires… and makes that sound very menacing. He also speaks ofMyriad and initiating the next phase. Seems like the Kryptonians are going to be making some noise.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 PM on CBS.

“I THINK ABOUT ATMOSPHERE CONSTANTLY WHEN I’M WRITING” – ANDE PARKS ON SEDUCTION OF THE INNOCENT
02/07/16 @ 8:16 pm EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: Dynamite | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Ande Parks talks to Byron Brewer about Seduction of the Innocent #3, on sale now from Dynamite. The cover art is from Francesco Francavilla. Interiors are by Esteve Poll.

Seduction03-Cov-A-Francavilla-9d9e3

BYRON BREWER: From the Japanese Tea Gardens to San Fran’s legendary Chinatown, the current issue of Seduction of the Innocent oozes ‘50’s California atmosphere. Who did the most research, Ande, you or artist Esteve Polls? Is atmosphere important to you as a writer?

ANDE PARKS: I think about atmosphere constantly when I’m writing, especially on this book. Seduction thrives on the vibe of its setting: the fog, the trench coats and fedoras, etc. When I chose San Francisco as the locale for our story, I knew right away that I wanted to show off the parts of the city that I love. I think we managed to hit most of them. We didn’t get to Alcatraz, alas. It was in operation as a prison at the time, and I just didn’t see a way to make that happen. Maybe if we get to do a sequel!As for research, the majority of the credit for that should always go to the artist. I do provide links to reference when I can, but Esteve is doing the heavy lifting. I’ve been an artist and I’ve been a writer. Believe me, it’s a hell of a lot easier to write a splash page set on the crowded streets of Chinatown than it is to draw that page.

BB: Speaking of Esteve, it looks like he has been hitting these noir-soaked pages out of the park. Your thoughts on your co-creator’s art?

AP: I would say that I’m really lucky to be teamed with Esteve again, but it’s not really luck. It’s [editor] Joe Rybandt and [publisher] Nick Barrucci knowing what the hell they’re doing. They assembled the team for this book, and I’m thrilled to have been included.Esteve and I are a good fit for a number of reasons. My writing thrives on atmosphere and on character moments. I am not going to blow you away with cosmic ideas. I think my approach can be very satisfying for readers, but only if the artist can bring the character moments to life. Esteve does so, time after time. You feel for his people, and you can feel the pain we put them through.

BB: You certainly are throwing a lot at Thomas Jennings thus far. I hesitate to ask for the agent’s sake, but were there crimes/situations planned for this miniseries you were not able to include for one reason or another?

AP: Actually, I think things got more harsh for Jennings as the series progressed. There were several drafts of the outline, and there were different action sequences and conclusions in each, but I think I just about always ended up going with the toughest option. Writing this series became an exercise in going for it. I would get a moment of crisis for the lead character, and decide that the book deserved that approach. Because we created these people just for this book, we had freedoms that are somewhat rare in comics these days. Nothing was held back as sacred for the sake of continuity. It was fun, if sometimes cringe-worthy.

BB: Can you give us a little hint, non-spoilery, of what awaits Agent Jennings next issue?

AP: His morals and ideas of “How Things Work” continue to be questioned. As our final issue opens Jennings is in a very dark place. The title of the third installment is “Topsy Turvy”, and that’s just what it is… things get flipped upside down. So, in the conclusion, Jennings is trying to find his way in this new landscape.Unfortunately, there is no clean way out from the place we have put Jennings. He will find a way out, but not with everything intact. He will be disappointed with himself and with the world, and he will definitely be changed.Again, in this kind of series, we get to explore a real arc for the protagonist. I think readers will enjoy that.
