Video Interview: Ed Brubaker and the Spy Game of VelvetA comics interview article by: Jason Sacks
Chances are that if you ever look at this website, you're familiar with the writer of Ed Brubaker. Writer of spectacular runs on comics like Captain America, Immortal Iron Fist, Sleeper, Criminal and Fatale, Brubaker has produced a slew of comics that have earned critical and popular acclaim, including his latest series, Velvet which ships its second issue the same day that we're posting this interview. I caught up with Ed at San Diego Comicon 2013, but as you'll see from this interview, the conversation is pretty much timeless as he discusses some of the ideas and motivations behind Velvet. The nature of spy comics, James Bond, independent creations and Brubaker's career are all touched on - plus talk of Fatale, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and much more. I'm sure you'll agree that he looks very snazzy in a hat, too.
