An Interview with Geoff Johns

Geoff Johns seemed to come out of nowhere a few years ago, making a splash with his first book, Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. Though a critical favorite, it didn’t quite make the same impact on readers, despite Geoff personally mailing free copies to anyone who asked. Now, of course, everyone loves it. Geoff has moved on,…

Further Interview With Phil Jimenez

Yesterday, Phil Jimenez talked about his past and current projects, and we confess that we completely forgot to ask him about working on The Invisibles. Sorry. Today, Phil talks about Wonder Woman in other venues, both television and (so Hollywood threatens) film. He also spends some time on the future, his, possibly yours, and that…

An Interview With Phil Jimenez

Running around the convention floor in San Diego, we ran into a lot of comics professionals. How could you not? We handed out a lot of business cards and asked for a lot of interviews.

Shannon Baksa: Star Wars’ Expanded Universe Mara Jade

Meet the woman who plays Mara Jade, and please relax. She didn’t really marry Luke Skywalker. Why not? Because Luke is a fictional character. You did know that, right? We started off the convention interviews by meeting Michonne Bourriage, the face (and hopefully someday, voice) of Aurra Sing in the Star Wars Universe. But Ultarama…

An Interview with Elizabeth Filarski (Now Hasselbeck)

We understood seeing Gene Simmons. He’s long been a comics fan, and a comics character. Elijah Wood? Well, he’s Frodo, so he has some connection. But Elisabeth Filarski? It just didn’t make sense that she would be at a comics convention. But thanks to the good people at Upper Deck, a collectible card publisher, America’s…

Comic-Con 2001: An Interview With Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa

Amidst the madness of the Comic-Con, we found a spot of calm in meeting Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa. If the name doesn’t quite ring a bell, trust us, you’ve seen him and you’ve enjoyed his performances. After making his official film debut in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor, Tagawa played a lot of heavies until making his…

Behind the Bounty Hunter Aurra Sing: Michonne Bourriage

Dark Horse Comics devoted two mini-series (and counting) to her. If you scour bookstores, you can find her immortalized with a coffee table book and 12′ action figure set, Dawn of the Bounty Hunters. She may be one of the most popular and recognizable characters in the Star Wars universe, and yet she had less…

An Interview with James Gunn on Scooby Doo

Note: This interview first appeared on Daily Radar, before the founding of Fanboy Planet. Derek McCaw: In San Diego, we talked about how you got the assignment to write Scooby Doo. But what do you bring to it that makes you the right man for the job? James Gunn: I don’t know if I can…

SDCC 2000: An Interview With Some Specials

Converting over old articles to 3.0… and here’s the first interview I ever did at Comic-Con in the year 2000… a lot has changed since then. At the San Diego Comics Convention, one movie sat on everyone’s lips. It had a lower budget than expected, no real stars, and it portrayed a realistic view of…
