Artist Stephen R. Bissette To Talk Swamp Thing and The Comics Authority

stevebisstte
I’ve recently become fairly obsessed with Swamp Thing. I blame two people. Kevin Smith for reading the Swamp Thing issues 52 and 53 on Fatman on Batman #45. Plus, Dan Slott making Spider-Man boring for a year. Anyways, I’m glad it happened because Swamp Thing, widely overlooked and under appreciated; is a phenomenal character to follow. This Tuesday, artist Stephen R. Bissette will be discussing his experience drawing Swamp Thing and more. Here is an article provided by ColumbusAlive.com:

One of comics’ most renowned artists visits Columbus for a retrospective on his celebrated career and its impact on the comics world.

Bissette is best known for his work on DC Comics’ “Saga of the Swamp Thing” from 1983 to 1987 with Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta).

Bissette added some powerful art to Moore’s rebooting of Swamp Thing’s mythology and changed how both audiences and creators viewed the potential of storytelling and art within the medium.

“Saga of the Swamp Thing” was so powerful, dark and popular that many credit it with laying the groundwork for dismantling the Comics Code Authority, the mainstream comics industry’s self-regulatory institution.

The Comics Code was formed in response to social, commercial and Congressional pressure to eliminate graphic violence, horror and sexual situations — basically creative censorship at its worst.

The event is free and open to the public.

I envy those who can attend this FREE event.

Join us, weary travelers, for another episode of the Metal Geeks podcast as we welcome aboard our very special guest, artist extraordinaire, Gerry Kissell. We start off by discussing Gerry and his careers in comics, including Iron Sky, Code Word: Geronimo, Alan Wake, and the upcoming Vindicated INC, the story about a former Delta Force Operator who loses his legs in combat, and with his new prosthetic legs, becomes a crime fighting vigilante. That is where it get’s strange. We dive into all sorts of topics, including, but not to exclude talk about graphic novels, Batman, Call Of Duty and multiplayer games, DLC for video games, Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith, Cyberforce, some military grade weapons, filmmaking and storyboarding, Mike Mignola, comic book conventions, Microsoft still supporting Xbox 360 after new generation, Game Of Thrones, binge watching tv shows, Strikeback, the Dinklage of Peter, AC/DC, some strange Bruce Dickinson news, and a plethora of many other different and strange topics! This episode was three guys just hanging out and rocking out with their geeks out! We are not very family friendly in this episode, and have so much fun, so dig in everybody!

You can keep up with all of Gerry with the following: @gerrykissell on the twitter and visit his website at Gerrykissell.com!
