Ep 31: The Last Airbender

September 20, 2017

With so many great animated TV shows being broadcast nowadays, it's important to remember those that came before. And what not to do when adapting them! Scott and Mark Russell take a look at one of their most hated films, that came from one of their most beloved cartoons. They talk about the adaptation process, Racebending, and why M. Night Shyamalan was probably on cactus juice when he made this movie.

In anticipation of the release of their book How Comics Work, Scott and David are joined by comic legend Dave Gibbons (of Watchmen, Batman vs Predator, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and many, many more comics-fame) and editor/pop culture writer Tim Pilcher, to discuss just how do comics work.

Gibbons and Pilcher talk about why they made the book, the qualities you need to make it in the comic industry, how storytelling isn't just about writing, and much more. Looks like we're playing with the big boys now!
