Awesome Con 2017: Chatting with Greg Capullo

Awesome Con 2017 Greg Capullo

This weekend brings the return of Washington D.C.’s annual Awesome Con. This year’s guest list includes artist Greg Capullo, whose long career in the industry includes such high-profile properties as Spawn and Batman. His creator-owned work ranges from The Creech to Reborn. In advance of Awesome Con, I recently had an extended conversation with Capullo covering various aspects of his work, including his creative process for Batman, the importance of artistic collaboration and his experience working at Image during different phases of their history.

Thanks to Greg Capullo and Awesome Con for making this interview possible.

A Man Called Logan

Logan. Jamie Howlett. Weapon X. The Wolverine. He’s known by many names, and he’s the best at what he does. A restless outsider whose an unstoppable killer, a masterless ronin whose often become a reluctant leader. Hugh Jackman has played the character consistently in live-action for close to 20 years now and made the role his own, and he’s apparently ready to hang up his claws after Logan. Over the course of four X-Men movies and three solo adventures, the man called Logan has survived many battles over his long life… Continue reading A Man Called Logan

Logan Movie Review

(No Spoilers)

There’s a Deadpool advert that played in my theater just before Logan started, which was short but entertaining. It was just what you expect from a two minute sketch of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool teasing his next film, but in spite of that, it was enjoyable none the less. Even if the beats are well-known and semi-predictable, there is viewing pleasure to be had in seeing how those beats are played out. Logan is in the same vein as that Deadpool advert, it delivers what you expect and does it well… Continue reading Logan Movie Review

Tyler’s Recommendations …
reborn1Reborn #1
“Mark Millar teams with Greg Capullo for a Sci-fi fantasy epic. Period. If you need more than that to convince you, we’re not friends.”

Josh’s Recommendations …
TMNTUniverse1TMNT Universe #1
“One might ask why we need a second TMNT ongoing, if they were unaware of its inspiring quality. IDW’s TMNT line has been almost perfect in its handling and creative teams. More of that, is more great comics and we can always use more of those.”

Dean’s Recommendations …
JupitersLegacy2Jupiter’s Legacy Volume 2 #2
“Is it weird that this book is called volume 2 #2? Yes. But try not to let that discourage you from buying this fantastic comic. It took a long time for Jupiter’s Legacy to return, but it is back and issue #1 was everything you want it to be. It was the best comic of the week and I’m fully expecting this one to follow that trend.”

Josh’s Recommendation …
Flinstones1The Flintstones #1
“Meet the Flintstones! For a new audience, same stone-age era. Honestly, I was always a bigger fan of ‘The Jetsons’ but the family antics of Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty as they did all the sitcom things with dinosaurs and oversized foods always fascinated me. Join me in seeing them once again delight and entertain.”
