This week on Creannotators, I talk with Aditya Bidikar about his work lettering everything from Blue in Green to The Department of Truth to Future State: Batman and beyond! We talk about what it’s like to letter all my favorite comics, the importance of lettering in a comics narrative flow, and how to balance a virtuoso approach to your creative output.
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!
