In this episode, we welcome writer Meredith Finch who has written novels and comics, including a stint on Wonder Woman. Meredith came on to promote her new creator owned comic book, Rose, which comes out from Image Comics on April 12th.
In addition to talking about Rose, Meredith talked with us about the importance of art in comics, the problems some publishers have with keeping a schedule, and the difficulty creative teams face in keeping up with monthly issues. We discussed various publishing methods, the prices of modern comics, and the problems with the big company crossover events that permeate the industry these days.
Not only is Meredith an accomplished writer in her own right, but she also happens to be married to superstar artist David Finch, and she told us how some of the experiences David has had helped her when she entered the world of comic writing.
We talked to Meredith about her love of fantasy fiction, and why she chose that genre for her upcoming comic Rose. Meredith also shared her love of cats with us, a love shared by the We Be Geek crew, and how that helped to create one of the main characters in Rose.
Meredith was a fantastic guest, and it was fun talking to her about comics.
