A Cross-Country Collaboration of Superheroes and Outlaws

Poodle Radio, June 15, 2010


On this week’s Poodle Radio, Colin Marshall is joined by James Andrew Clark, co-creator with David Wachter of the Eisner award-nominated web comic The Guns of Shadow Valley (gunsofshadowvalley.com). They discuss the unique opportunities and challenges of merging the sensibilities of classic Old West cinema with superhero comics, whether the world at large has finally become ready for the kind of character depths comics have been exploring for decades, what it’s like to make a creative project with one partner in Santa Barbara and the other in Pittsburgh, and why they along with so many other comic creators have chosen to go with free digital distribution. Colin profiled James Andrew Clark and the comic in the Indy last month.
