Comic Interview: THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS’ Nick Pitarra
In partnership with Radiobastard.com, Jeremy R! Hudson, and our comic book editor Jason Tabrys, we’ll be syndicating monthly interviews with some of the most interesting folks in and around the world of comic books. Up first: Nick Pitarra, the co-creator and artist of The Manhattan Projects from Image Comics.
What do they talk about? Well, the greatness of series co-creator/writer Jonathan Hickman, the advantage of having easily recognizable characters in the indie world, the coming return of both guest artist Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts) and Oppenheimer Land (the brain based battlefield where Oppenheimer battles Oppenheimer and so on…), weird commission requests, and superheroes covered in glue and eating nachos.
Also on the show, the guys discuss print vs. digital with Mr. Pitarra, go over the contents of his comic collection, and listen as Pitarra makes his bold Eisner Award predictions and promises to deliver a drunken epic acceptance speech should he or Hickman take home an award.
