With recent Marvel release ‘Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe’ heading into a 2nd print following it’s success (reviewed here – #1, #2, #3 & #4), Venom hitting a crossover event, Captain America involvement and his own creator-owned series on the go – it’s no wonder that Cullen Bunn seems to be a common name to hear in the comic book world of 2012.

It’s Sunday afternoon of Kapow! 2012 and Scott Snyder sits down to chat to us in a ‘WWBD’ t-shirt (with the bat logo below it) – we’re probably the last people he wants to be chatting to, since he was out to the small hours of the night before with his Detective Comics buddy Jock, drinking and eating hot dogs. ‘It seemed like a brilliant idea at the time’ – at least we know he got a taste of the UK comic scene at it’s best. Hangover aside, Scott was nice enough to answer the many questions we had about all the titles he’s working on just now.

Given the chance, there’s probably a short list of people with whom I’d like to swap brains for the day, including Grant Morrison (trippy) and Scott Snyder (BATMAN!), but right now there’s one person’s head I’d love to be able look deeply into so that I can have the answers to what’s happening in his comic – Nick Spencer. He’s currently writing a couple of books for Image and has previously worked with DC and Marvel. We managed to grab Nick at this year’s Kapow! to talk about his current and upcoming work.

David Hine has been a constant fixture in comics since the early 1980s. He is a creator you’d find near impossible to pigeon-hole or predict. He has worked both as an artist and a writer and he began his career inking on Marvel UK titles. He has expanded the mythos of many of the fanboys’ dream characters, created manga for Tokyopop, developed properties for revolutionary publisher Radical and, alongside Brit art legend Shaky Kane, created the recent groundbreaking Image title Bulletproof Coffin. I caught up with Hine at London’s Kapow! convention last month to discuss some of his past work and his newly announced collaboration with Dougie Braithwaite, Storm Dogs.

The DCnew52 has been a mixed bag of comics all of varying quality. Controversies, cancellations and second wave titles aside it is no secret that the books giving DC and their readers their best are titles from the ‘Dark’ stable, Swamp Thing and Animal Man particularly. Jeff Lemire, writer of Animal Man, has taken the mantle of DC golden boy as he moves from his inroad ‘Sweet Tooth’ at Vertigo to multiple books at DC proper. Scott Snyder is currently at the helm of both Swampy and Batman where he is currently penning the ‘Court of Owls’ saga which is being heralded as one of the best modern Bats stories ever.
