This week on Creannotators, I talk with Chip Zdarsky about the Eisner-winning Afterlift, Daredevil, and a whole bunch more. We dig into the religious themes of Afterlift, Chip’s upcoming work on Marvel What If works like Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow, and the challenge of writing in the shadow of Daredevil’s legacy!
Note: Some spoilers for discussed comics follow!
On Comic Book Herald’s ‘Creannotators’ I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. Creannotators is an audio annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
