Today’s guest is one of the most important comic-book writers in the business. Working with industry icon Alex Ross, he created the highly acclaimed Earth X trilogy for Marvel Comics. The duo then reunited at DC Comics and produced the Eisner-award winning epic Justice. His writing has given voice to the X-Men, the Avengers, Spider-Man, Batman, Buffy, and he even put his feet into the Star Wars universe, because – well, why not? Independently, he began publishing his own work. Foot Soldiers, recently re-released and reprinted by Image Comics, is a wonder of storytelling, bringing in a wealth of the most talented artists in comics to tell a post-apocalyptic punk-rock superhero epic, and manages to be warm-hearted and nostalgic all at the same time. His original graphic novel The High Cost of Happily Ever After turns the damsel-in-distress genre on its head, and his latest book The Runner will just plain scare the hell out of you. He is a writer, he is a director, he is a producer. He is Jim Krueger.
