I love when I am able to speak with the talented creators who have brought my hero to life. I am not sure how many times I have read “Kingdom Come” or “Superman: Birthright” over the years but I know it is a lot. They are two very different stories but that have both had a huge impact on my life so when Mark Waid agreed to be a guest on the show I was very happy!
I wanted to know as much about Mark as I could and the stories that I have enjoyed so much over the years. Kingdom Come and Birthright are on many comic fans Top Ten lists and it was an honour to hear how these stories came to life.
Mark has so much passion for writing and I could have spoken with him for hours and his answer to my favourite question “What Does Superman Mean To You?” almost had me in tears.
In the interview Mark talked a lot about “Superman: Birthright” and how it is his love letter to Superman and I could not agree more. To hear him talk so fondly about his work, and his working relationship with Alex Ross, made this a great episode to record and listen back to.
If you love “Kingdom Come,” “Superman: Birthright” or just talented comic creators in general, you will enjoy this episode as much as I did recording it!
