Episode 128 – Mustang Moderate f/Fred Van Lente September 3, 2012Posted by Matt in : Episodes , trackback
The writer of Valiant’s new Archer and Armstrong series, Fred Van Lente, joins us for this weeks show! We talk to him about the response he’s gotten to his politically charged comic, how he likes his reputation as a history comics guy, how Armstrong is kind of like Marvel’s Hercules (and Archer is nothing like Amadeus Cho), what other Valiant titles his book might cross over with, and much more! Plus, a particularly lyrical reading from the pages of Thrasher magazine!
