Off Panel #45: The Fastest Man Alive with Joshua Williamson

In another special edition podcast recorded at Emerald City ComiCon, writer Joshua Williamson joins the show to talk his work on books like Nailbiter, Birthright and the upcoming rebirth of The Flash. He talks about his path to comics, how he develops his own stories, what he’s done to prepare for defining a new era of The Flash, his epic Flash reread, how Batman Returns helped him get into comics, comic book economics, promotion, Geoff Johns’ epic comic collection, Williamson’s apple cart theory, the artists he works with, the collaborative process, creative attribution, reading reviews, why you should pick up The Flash, and more.
