Comics Alternative Interviews: Steve Bryant

Adventures with Steve and Athena

BryantOn this latest episode of The Comics Alternative Interviews, Derek talks with Steve Bryant, the creator of Athena Voltaire. His latest collection, Athena Voltaire Compendium, was just released from Dark Horse Books and Sequential Pulp Comics. They begin their conversation by discussing the evolution of Athena Voltaire, how it began as a collaborative webcomic, eventually finding its way into a brief print run (via Speakeasy Comics and Ape Entertainment), compendium01.inddturning into a successful Kickstarter campaign, ultimately resulting in a nice hardbound collection of five stories. Derek asks Steve about the ideas behind the character of Athena Voltaire, and he learns that not only did Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark serve as part of the titles’s inspiration, but so did Dave Steven’s Rocketeer as well as a broader, deep love for 1930s/1940s era pulp fiction. Steve shares the process behind the creation of the new Compendium, his passion for world building, work on the promised followup Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess, and his desires to turn Athena Voltaire into more extensive ongoing series. If you love adventure and if you love pulp, this is a collection — and an interview — you don’t want to miss!
