I just finished listening to Around Comics’ interview with John Byrne. I was disappointed. Don’t get me wrong… it was a great conversation that tackled most of the topics I’d expect to hear brought up when talking with that particular creator, but there were two things I questioned:
- The interviewers were very fannish at times, talking about how amazing his work was (which, to be fair, probably reflected a lot of their audience and helped get them the interview).
- Byrne sounded completely rational. I found myself agreeing with a lot of his points. Which makes me think he should get off the internet, because clearly it doesn’t present him well, and it plays into his concerns about lack of context (like verbal and physical presentation).
Where were the outrageous statements that would get the net buzzing and listeners sputtering? Seriously, good coverage that caused some rethinking. I was also surprised to hear my note to them included, after I met some of their team at the Chicago Con earlier this year. We’re talking about my appearing on their show sometime in the future.
