We’re so excited to welcome excellent colorist Nick Filardi to the Reboot Comic Book Club podcast!
Nick brings wonderful discussion and keen insight into the role of the colorist, how he makes his impact on the comics he’s working on, and what his favorite kind of comics are.
His profile has steadily increased over the years to the point where he is one of the highly regarded colorists among contemporary creators, plying his craft on titles like Powers with Mike Oeming and Brian Bendis.
Nick and I also discuss two of his latest titles from Oni Press: Chris Sebela and Robert Wilson IV’s Heartthrob and Janet Harvey and Megan Levens’ Angel City, two unique approaches to genre stories with strong visual identities.
How does he create his pallets and what sort of visual cues does he like to create for his work? LISTEN TO THE DAMN PODCAST TO FIND OUT!
We also discuss Nick’s pick for the week, Andrew MacLean’s instant classic ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times.
Nick on ApocalyptiGirl:
“The mark of a good comic was that I finished it and I was thinking about it through the day. And I wanted more of the world. I wished that it was slower so that I could read more. You know what I mean? I want to know more about the warring clans, I want to know more about the ONE mechs that came down. I want more of everything. I could easily—I’m sure that Andrew could write a second trade and I’d be just as blown away. The world is just so rich.“
We also spoke about Brent Schoonover who contributed to my dick sketchbook at Phoenix Comicon, and because Nick demanded it here is the dick that he drew:
