Comic Book Nerds to Invade Macon. An Interview with Brad Walker
Brad Walker is a Big Deal when it comes to Comics. This SCAD graduate has worked on Batman, Superman, The Guardians of the Galaxy and tons of other titles in the DC and Marvel Universe. But really, those three we just mentioned are three of the biggest titles in the industry. And he’s coming to Macon as part of this weekend’s MGA CON, a comic Book convention with panels, swag, and all the crazy costumes you can stand. Our comic book experts Amber Whitley and Black Patterson caught up with Brad this past week. Check out their talk here.
By Amber Whitley and Blake Patterson
When did you realize that you wanted to be involved in making Comic Books?
What drew you to MGA Con which is a relatively new, smaller convention and what do you enjoy the most about the convention scene?
Having worked for both DC and Marvel, what series would you consider your dream job or have you already found it with Sinestro, considering you get to delve into the complexity of his character?
When I look at the New 52 Sinestro series, I see almost an ode to early 1990’s X-Men comics, mainly Jim Lee. Was he a big influence on your artistic style?
Other than Sinestro, who have been your favorite characters to illustrate?
When you were penciling Gaurdians of the Galaxy in 2008, did you ever think it would become of the biggest movies of all time and what did you think of the movie?
What do you think of the current Marvel and DC cinematic universes?
Are there any new movies or tv shows based on comic books that you are excited about?
Currently, who is your favorite artist and what are you reading?
Do you feel that cosplay has helped or hindered the comic book convention scene?
Do you have any new and exciting projects that you can tell us about?
