Born in Toronto, grew up in Oshawa and now living in Kelowna, B.C., Marvel writer Ed Brisson (Old Man Logan, Iron Fist) regales us with his 18-year odyssey trying to break into comics. Even after he seemingly broke in with The Comeback for Image Comics, there was still a period where he was being rent-evicted from his home in Vancouver, all his comics work had basically dried up and he was mere moments away from taking on a full-time job before Marvel offered him a solo title starring the Daredevil villain Bullseye. Thankfully he hasn’t looked back since, but his harrowing experience with Vancouver real estate inspired the Vancouver-centric noir, The Violent, which exposes the seedy underbelly of a city on many top ten destination lists. Recorded on location from The Pan Pacific Hotel during Fan Expo Vancouver, Brisson discusses the pressure of taking over Old Man Logan from Jeff Lemire and what speaks to him about an older Wolverine. He also talks about how his dad’s position as a karate teacher and Shaw Brothers Kung Fu movies influenced his run on Iron Fist. Episode Sponsored by Hairy Tarantula
