ComicsVerse Episode 86: Interview with Rick Remender

After covering many of his works, such as DEADLY CLASS and UNCANNY X-FORCE, over several ComicsVerse podcasts, we’re proud to present Episode 86 of the podcast — our Rick Remender interview!

LISTEN: Check out our ComicsVerse podcast episode on DEADLY CLASS!

Over the course of the conversation with ComicsVerse CEO Justin Alba, Kay Honda, Matthew Murphy, and Marius Thienenkamp, Remender discussed his history and influences as a writer, his stances on the medium, the creative process, and collaborating with other artists.

LISTEN: Part 1 of our two-part podcast about UNCANNY X-FORCE!

In discussing his Marvel works, we focused on his fan favorite run on UNCANNY X-FORCE, a book that many consider a modern mutant classic. What’s the secret behind the book’s captivating moral dilemmas? How did Remender approach working with a set of characters that all share a dark side, or as Justin put it, a killer instinct, and how did he manage to give them a human side? Spoiler alert: he might not be thinking about some of the characters he wrote as enthusiastically as one would assume!

LISTEN: Our discussion about the ethics in Remender’s UNCANNY X-FORCE on the Ethics in Comics Podcast!

Of course, we didn’t miss out on discussing his numerous beloved works for Image. Be it LOW, TOKYO GHOST or DEADLY CLASS: themes like narcissism, fatherhood, and a fear of the future seemed to reoccur in his books, so during our Rick Remender interview, we discussed what these elements meant to him personally.

In talking about these works, Remender not only gave us amazing insight into his work ethic and creative energy but also into his personal morals and philosophy – be it as a punk-rock enthusiast or as a father. If you ever wanted to see his intimate and artistic side – this Rick Remender interview might be for you!

This podcast is also available on iTunes, Spreaker, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio, and Sticher.

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 83: The Dark Angel Saga and Rick Remender’s UNCANNY X-FORCE (part 2)

Despite its youth, “The Dark Angel Saga” is already considered by X-Force, X-Men, and many other comics fans to be a modern X-Men comics classic. Not only is there a revisit to X-Men’s Age of Apocalypse universe, but Rick Remender’s arc on UNCANNY X-FORCE also offers several interesting parallels to Chris Claremont’s classic– “Dark Phoenix Saga.”  What sets this UNCANNY X-FORCE run apart from other 21st century stories? What makes it so staggeringly heartbreaking? We delve into that and more in this podcast.

In addition to discussing various plot twists and character dynamics, UNCANNY X-FORCE’s motif of embracing one’s killer instinct makes up a large portion of this episode. Rest assured, we made time to dish on which X-Force characters are our favorites and which X-Force characters resonated the most with us on a personal level all while examining Rick Remender’s closing arc that managed to wrap up the underlying moral conflicts and conclude this epic story arc flawlessly.

LISTEN: Want more Rick Remender podcasts? Check out DEADLY CLASS!

We dedicate a segment of this podcast to the work of the diverse set of artists on UNCANNY X-FORCE, such as Esad Ribic, Julian Totino Tedesco, Mark Brooks, and others. Finally, we conclude by applying the techniques for developing a three-dimensional character created by legendary acting coach, Susan Batson, in her book– Truth, to engage in character analyses of Archangel (Warren Worthington, III) and Psylocke (Betsy Braddock).

Episode 83 concludes a two-part series on UNCANNY X-FORCE by Rick Remender. In this episode, ComicsVerse CEO, Justin Alba, and German staff writer, Marius Thienenkamp, co-host this podcast joined by Mark Hassenfratz, Dellen Miller, Kay Honda, and Jamie Rice.

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 82: Rick Remender’s UNCANNY X-FORCE part 1

Episode 82 of the ComicsVerse podcast represents part one of our two-part series on the legendary UNCANNY X-FORCE by Rick Remender. ComicsVerse CEO Justin Alba is joined by his co-host Marius Thienenkamp (who had the honor of visiting New York and the ComicsVerse office for the very first time) as well as panelists Kay Honda, Mark Hassenfratz, Dellen Miller, Nolan Bensen, Jamie Rice, Corey Spanner, and Nick Marinelli.

LISTEN: The iconic X-Men crossover AGE OF APOCALYPSE revisited on the ComicsVerse podcast!

As one of the darkest entries in the history of X-Men related books, UNCANNY X-FORCE by Rick Remender is also considered by many to be a modern masterpiece, UNCANNY X-FORCE by Rick Remender offers a lot to talk to discuss. The book delves incredibly deep into the psychology of characters such as Wolverine, Deadpool, and Psylocke as well as the ethics of superheroism in general. As the mutants form a secret assassination squad, they are more and more often forced to question their understanding of morality– and so is the reader!

In this episode, the podcast crew analyses the UNCANNY X-FORCE by Rick Remender’s ongoing motif of fighting against or embracing, for the greater good, one’s killer instinct. It discusses the various plot twists and character dynamics amongst Rick Remender’s leading cast members. Where does Warren Worthington, III end, and Archangel begin? What implications does Betsy Braddock’s relationship to him hold? What are other important motifs throughout the book? Which characters did we enjoy the most? Those questions, among others, will be answered!

Stay tuned for part two, in which we further delve into the run’s most important story arcs, DARK ANGEL SAGA, and THE FINAL EXECUTION, apply the Susan Batson character analysis test, as well as comment on and discuss the book’s art!
