We’re bringing you a bonus episode this month, and couldn’t be more excited about our guest. Marc Guggenheim is a veteran of both comics and TV writing. His new creator-owned book, Stringers, hits shelves this week and we talk in depth about that book as well as his other comics work.
Marc was part of the “Webheads” braintrust that re-launched Amazing Spider-Man in 2008, following “One More Day”. His work on that title was well-received, perhaps none more so than the landmark issue #574, which left an indelible mark on the character of Flash Thompson. He’s currently writing two Secret Wars tie ins at Marvel and the comics adaptation of Arrow for DC. These are just some of Marc’s comics work that we discuss before turning our attention to Television.
With dozens of Film and TV credits to his name, Marc is well-established in the cinematic realm. He’s a show-runner on the hit CW show, Arrow and literally joins us from the set to take time for this conversation. Are Ollie and Felicity meant to be? What are Marc’s favorite Arrow Easter eggs? Can we get Diggle a damn costume?! These questions and more are put to the Arrow scribe on the eve of Season 4. Tune in and enjoy this hour-long conversation with a multi-talented, cross-medium all-star creator.
