Chuck Austen Interview part 1



I RARELY EDITORIALIZE, BUT I ALWAYS FELT THAT WHILE
X-FANS HAD EVERY RIGHT TO DISLIKE THE STYLE OF A
GIVEN ARTIST OR WRITER, THE AMOUNT OF UGLY VENOM
SPEWED AT CHUCK AUSTEN DEFINES THE NERDY STIGMA
COMIC FANS MUST ENDURE BY NON-READERS.

IT WAS IMMATURE SHRILL NONSENSE .

PERSONALLY, I’M A BIG FAN OF CHUCK’S WORK ON WAR
MACHINE, THE ETERNAL, HIS X-RATED COMICS, AND MOST
OF HIS DC BOOKS.

IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE SPENDING TIME WITH CHUCK
ON THIS EPISODE.

IN PART 1, CHUCK TALKS ABOUT THE NEW BOOK FROM TOKYO POP “THE BOYS
OF SUMMER” , HIS EARLY COMIC DAYS AT ECLIPSE, DRAWING MIRACLEMAN, THE
CONTROVERSIAL ALAN MOORE EPIC, AND HE DESCRIBES THE CRAZY SCENE AT
THE INFAMOUS 1986 SAN DIEGO CONVENTION, WHICH BECAME MOORE’S FRST,
AND LAST US CON APPEARENCE.

WE ALSO TALK ABOUT CHUCK’S ANIMATION DAYS ON FOX TV’S “KING OF THE
HILL”, AND HIS CO-CREATION WITH CHRIS MOLLER “TRIPPING THE RIFT” THE
SCI-FI CHANNEL SERIES STARRING STEVEN ROOT
