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, we're speaking to W. Maxwell Prince, co-creator of the graphic novel ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY with John Amor. Prince is a big fan of the written word, in keeping with the themes the team explores in ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY.
ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY is an experimental graphic novel that dedicates one chapter to each day of the week in the life of a librarian. Each day tells a comics story in a different storytelling style, while exploring the variety of ways literature takes hold of us. In keeping with that theme, Prince discusses the power of the written word on the latter portion of the podcast, and why he's such a big believer in it.
ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY is available now.
