DECOMPRESSED 016: AL EWING ON JENNIFER BLOOD 17

Er… we’re back? I always said it was going to be irregular. But the podcast constipation is over and… this metaphor is going to no place that’s good. Let’s stop.

I recorded this back at New York Comic Con, where I talked to Al Ewing about the revenge-thriller villain-protagonist creature that is Jennifer Blood 17. We pick apart its double-page-splash structure, Splash ends, whether Splash-ends is a porn term, physical size’s relation to dramatic size, ethics, the king of the New York piss porn circuit, sound in dialogue to create momentum in sex scenes and - oh my! - this is really all about sex and craft. And death. Really, it’s primarily how great Kewber Baal is.

You can buy JENNIFER BLOOD from your local comic-shop or digitally from Comixology.

You can download the podcast from here. Its webpage RSS page is here. And you can find it on Itunes here.

Oh, Embed. Where are you?

There are you.

You’ll find all the Study Aids over on my workblog.
