Deconstructing Comics on Fear Itself & Other Events: Tim Young & Me Discuss.
I spoke to Tim Young at the Deconstructing Comics podcast again. Last time was about Theatre and Comics. This time, somewhat more mainstream talk--We discuss comics "Events," what's annoying about them, when they have a justification(and not) and mainly talk about FEAR ITSELF and FLASHPOINT. I say very critical things of Matt Fraction, who I emphasize I normally like(partly because he lives in this city I think, and may send drones after me), but also say very complimentary things about JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY by Kieron Gillen, which I believe is pretty much the best series Marvel has at this time. FEAR ITSELF is justified if only because it created an excuse for that book to exist.
Anyway, have a listen. Here's the talk. Feel free in the comments(which are moderated, so if yours doesn't go in immediately don't fret) to tell me whatcha think. Also: my voice is rather muffled, so be prepared.
