In this week’s first podcast from Emerald City ComiCon, artist Fiona Staples joins the show to talk her art. Staples talks about what first made her want to work on comics for a living, how she first made her way into the industry, the disconnect between Saga’s success and what she does, her process and how she works, the mad science of creating Saga with Brian K. Vaughan, character acting, how working with BKV changes her ability to bring characters to life, relaunching Archie, her own evolution as an artist, and more. It’s another shorter episode, but a good one with one of the finest artists in comics today.
You can find Fiona on Twitter and her work in Saga at Image Comics every month.
