Comics Alternative Interviews: Arvind Ethan David

Listen to the podcast!



For this interview episode, Derek talks with Arvind Ethan David about his current work on the IDW miniseries, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: A Spoon Too Short. He writes that title, working with Ilias Kyriazis on art, and he was the editor of last year’s earlier Dirk Gently series. Arvind talks with Derek extensively ArvindEthanDavidabout his fascination with this unorthodox detective, his association with the late Douglas Adams, and the curious road he traveled to get into comics. A Spoon Too Short isn’t an outright adaptation of any of Adams’s novels, although its title springs from an alternative title the writer had been considering for a book he was working on at the time of his death. And fans of Douglas Adams will recognize in the comic plenty of allusions to novelist’s body of work. Arvind also shares some inside information — at least, what he’s able to disclose — about the new Dirk Gently BBC series that will begin this fall, where he will work with Max Landis to bring the Adams character to television for the second time. The guys also discuss the upcoming Darkness Visible, an original comics series that Arvind is writing with Mike Carey and that will be coming out from IDW later this year. This is a busy time for the solicitor/producer/editor/writer, but in this interview Arvind takes the time to share his experiences and whet listeners’ appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things.
