Landry Q. Walker and Eric Jones talk about the scary accident that caused DANGER CLUB delays and why colorist Rusty Drake is essential to the title at Comic Book Resources’ Robot 6.
Good interview to read as it (a) explains why the next issue hasn’t come out yet, (b) highlights how difficult it can be to work in the comics industry, and (c) gives an example of a close and seemingly fun team of creators.
Part of the solicitation for Issue 6 includes the opening phrase “As all of reality collapses …”– narrative-wise as well as artistically how challenging is it to convey the collapse of reality on a printed page?
Landry: Oh, it’s quite easy. You just write: “All of reality collapses.” The rest seems to take care of itself!
Eric: It should be noted that I hate Landry’s guts, by the way.
This is, by the way, an excellent comic to pick up. A world in which all the heroes have left, chasing after some incredible and unimaginable danger and leaving behind all of their sidekicks. Alliances are redrawn. Villains and heroes are redefined.
What do you do when you get promoted too soon? When all of your mentors are gone? When a power vacuum changes all the dynamics you’ve grown used to? When you don’t know whether or not the heroes have been successful in their quest, or if the danger they went to defeat is still coming?
Those are some of the questions each character in this series has to struggle with and answer in their own way.
One good side effect of the delay is that there are still only three issues out, making this really easy to catch up on.
PS: That picture? That isn’t a cover or special page—that is every single page. Seriously, this comic is gorgeous.
