Join The Future Spotlight with Zack Kaplan | AfterShock Monday

The Comic Source Podcast

Jace chats with writer Zack Kaplan about the recently released Join The Future TPB. Zack talks about building this story as a look at technology and security versus tradition and freedom. Not looking at is a political issue but something much more personal. It doesn't get much more personal than Clementine Libbey having to grow up in a hurry while seeking justice for the loss of her brother, her father and her town itself. There's a lot to unpack in this one and the guys dive into all of it. Plus they chat about the incredible art from Piotr Kowalski and Brad Simpson.

Join the Future with Zack Kaplan

Creator Talks Podcast

Celebrate the New Year with this special bonus interview! The last interview with writer Zack Kaplan was on my 12th episode. Zack returns to Creator Talks to kick off 2021 by discussing his latest trade paperback Join The Future (Aftershock Comics).  It is a Sci-Fi Western about ultra-modern megacities rewarding millions of their citizens with a completely funded life, with every need met, from food to housing and healthcare, in order to compete in an economic power struggle in which population is key.      We talk about Join The Future and the artists Zack has collaborated with on all his comic book series.   Zack's prior work Eclipse (Top Cow 2016), Port of Earth (Top Cow 2018) and The Lost City Explorers (Aftershock 2018) have been optioned for TV series development. I ask Zack, are comics getting optioned for television really that common? As I learned in our first interview Zack loves to play poker.  How much of Poker's strategy is based on psychology, i.e., reading the other person? In Zack's opinion, has any book or film portrayed a realistic game of Poker ? How would Zack re-write a script for game of Poker for a James Bond film? Zack also answers nine fun questions I ask including: What's his beef? What is his guilty pleasure? When did he take a risk?
