Dean Haspiel & Seth Kushner interviewed on Word Balloon podcast

Me and Seth Kushner were interviewed by John Siuntres on the latest Word Balloon podcast where we discuss TRIP CITY, Leaping Tall Buildings (written by Christopher Irving), our current projects + the Before Watchmen and Jack Kirby controversies, digital comics, and more.

“Dean Haspiel and Seth Kushner return to Word Balloon to discuss the TRIP CITY website, a multimedia hub for many Brooklyn creative artists. Dean and Seth have been co-hosting the Trip City Podcast featuring peer-to-peer conversations between comic book creators, and other media creators and stars. Kushner is also here to talk about his photographic work in the new comics history book Leaping Tall Buildings written by Christopher Irving. Irving and Kushner produced an excellent look at creators from golden age stalwarts like Joe Simon, Irwin Hasen, and Jerry Robinson, to today’s web comic innovators. From mainstream to underground no era or genre of comics is ignored, and the profiles presented by the duo are unparallelled. Haspiel talks about current projects like making the 6 page digital comic for THE DOORS mobile app, which depicts the band’s official point of view of the infamous Miami concert of March 1st, 1969. Haspiel also has a Godzilla Legends issue this month from IDW written by Bobby Curnow, and a quirky upcoming 8 page Spider-Man story for Marvel later this year. The guys also discuss the Before Watchmen and Jack Kirby controversies, digital comics and more.”
