Comics Alternative Interviews: Ed Brisson

Listen to the podcast!

“I’ve got  no problem with hipsters”

EdBrisson

In yet another of the Two Guys’ interview series, Derek is back to talk with one of the hardest working people in comics today, Ed Brisson. The first issue of his and Adam Gorham’s new series, The Violent, will be released tomorrow, and Ed shares with Derek the story behind this new ongoing title ViolentCoverfrom Image Comics. In fact, Ed reveals that the genesis of the narrative actually springs from his earlier webcomic (and later Dark Horse title), Murder Book. The protagonists, Mason and Becky, are a young working class couple with a checkered past trying to escape the drugs and crime that helped to get them where they are today. As Ed describes, their dilemma has very much a “Murder Book feel,” making The Violent an ongoing extension of that story collection. The two also talk about his and Lisandro Estherren’s upcoming four-issue miniseries from BOOM! Studios, The Last Contract, the story of a retired hitman who reluctantly finds himself forced back into the business. Along the way, they also bring in discussions of Ed’s previous series such as ComebackThe FieldThe Mantle, Cluster, and Sheltered. In fact, it’s all that Derek can do to contain a conversation that includes such prodigious output. Ed’s definitely a hard-working writer, but as he makes clear in the interview, he knows how to let loose, have a good time, and then let those experiences inform his art.
