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 Brian Buccellato, co-creator of CANNIBAL, which debuts this week. Brian enjoys sitting down with quality TV and appreciating the advances in storytelling.
CANNIBAL takes place in Willow, a small town in Florida that is about to come head-to-head with an epidemic whose cure makes people thirst for human flesh, but without turning them into zombies. Brian also enjoys watching the high-quality TV shows available now, from Breaking Bad to The Wire to The Shield.
CANNIBAL #1 is available now.
