#Newcomicsday is 2/10
Welcome to The i Word, the official podcast of Image Comics, hosted by David Brothers. In creator-owned comics, the creator is the real star, and the goal of the podcast is to not just talk comics with one creator at a time, but to give you a chance to see what influences them, too. For the first half of the show, we'll talk about their comics work. We'll discuss their process, collaborators, upcoming work, and other things related to their books. After that's done, we'll switch gears and talk about something they're passionate about, be it sports, video games, movies, or obscure b-sides from an ultra-specific microgenre of music. This week's guest is Meredith McClaren, creator of the graphic novel HINGES. Meredith's interested in stage combat.
To commemorate the release of HINGES Book Two: PAPER TIGERS, Meredith joins The i Word to discuss the conception of the book, the trick to making happy accidents work for you, and silent storytelling. She's interested in stage combat, and shares some information from her classes with us.
