The Near Mint Comic Show

Near Mint Ep. 024 - J.H. Williams III

April 27, 2010

Every once in a while this little ol' podcast reels in a very BIG guest and this one is no exception. In this Near Minterview special, we talk one-on-one with the eisner-nominated artist of Detective Comics, J.H. Williams III.  Fresh off his phenomenal run with writer, Greg Rucka, J.H. is poised to take Kate Kane, Batwoman, from the pages of Detective and into her own monthly ongoing which he will write and draw in collaboration with W. Haden Blackman (Star Wars: Purge) and Amy Reeder Hadley (Madame Xanadu). During our conversation we talk about JHW3's career in comics, his unique melting pot approach to art and storytelling, and his ability to push conventions and expand the language of comics.  In the second half of the episode, we cover all things Batwoman as J.H. takes us behind the scenes of the on-again-off-again Bat-title and how it finally got the green light.  We discuss Kate Kane's character, her costume, her sexuality, her place in the greater DCU and what we can expect to see in her upcoming adventures. Music in this episode by: Animal Liberation Orchestra, Pilotgroove and Ben Folds Five
