Ep. 38: C2E2 2015--Max Brooks and Bill Willingham

This special episode of the podcast known as The Chauncey DeVega Show features two conversations from Chicago's 2015 Comic and Entertainment Expo. The first conversation is with Max Brooks. He is the author of the zombie tome and landmark work World War Z. His most recent project is the graphic novel The Harlem Hellfighters. It explores the history of one of America's most storied combat units and how their struggle for dignity and honor in the face of Jim and Jane Crow America is one of the most important, yet little known, histories of the colorline in the United States. Max Brooks and Chauncey chat about the challenge of creating a graphic novel that also tries to be historically accurate where possible, Will Smith's adapting The Harlem Hellfighters as a Hollywood project, the epic book World War Z, and favorite reads from his childhood. The second conversation features Bill Willingham. He is the the author of such comic book series as the multiple Will Eisner award-winning series Fables, as well as Jack of FablesElementals, and Fairest. Bill Willingham and Chauncey talk about the narrative arc of Fables, Bill's patience and generous listening to fans of his work, how Fables is an insight into his personal values, and offers some wisdom and advice for journeyman writers, artists, and other folks who want to work as professionals in the comic book industry.
