We Are Words + Pictures, Vol. 7

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! So We Are Words + Pictures host Michael Leader thought it best to curl up with a coffee at Wilton’s with guest (and WAW+P co-founder) Matthew Sheret, to reminisce about what they both enjoyed in 2010. Expect gratuitous comics-based chatter and some of the year’s best tunes. And what good is Christmas without friends? In this special episode, we also hear from comics artists Adam Cadwell, Kayla Marie Hillier and Joe List, recounting their favourite tracks, flicks and comics from the last twelve months.

We Are Words + Pictures, Vol. 6

For this episode of the We Are Word And Pictures comics radio show, host Michael Leader is joined by writer Antony Johnston, whose list of published works is varied and rather overwhelming – ranging from co-writing Daredevil for Marvel and co-creating his own series Wasteland, to scripting the EA video game Dead Space.

Antony picks the tunes, a mix of heavy metal and synth-pop, while talking to Michael about the role of writers in comics, how video games can expand their storytelling horizons with transmedia tie-ins, and why, despite success in other forms, he’s drawn back to the medium of comics.
