Paul Kupperberg Returns (Direct Conversations)

Dollar Bin Bandits: A Comic Book Interview Podcast

There's only one Paul Kupperberg. But there's a big group of creators that came up at DC Comics during the so-called Bronze Age of comics, and lucky enough, Paul's friends with most of them. So he decided to do what friends do and reminisce about the days of yore, bringing the adventures of our four-color heroes to life in the 70s and 80s. And then he did something different. He recorded those conversations, transcribed them into text, and compiled it all into a book called Direct Conversations. It's the sequel to his similar Direct Comments, and Paul gets into it with such DC luminaries as Howard Chaykin, Paul Levitz, Joe Staton, and more! So basically, this episode is talking to Paul about talking to his friends, all of whom helped make DC what it is today. No big whoop.If it's before noon on 10/26/22 when you're reading this, you can still support the Direct Conversations Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/writingcomics/direct-conversations.

Episode 169: Paul Kupperberg

Eating the Fantastic

Chow down on butter chicken with Paul Kupperberg as we discuss which superhero starred in his first favorite comic book, the reasons we're in agreement when it comes to the Stan Lee vs. Jack Kirby debate, why his introduction to Superman had nothing to do with comics, what we each felt was lacking in our own early comic book writing, the surprising identity of the DC editor whose books sold the best, what caused legendary artist Don Heck to curse him out, the special challenges of writing comic strips, how he needed to get ready (or not) before writing all those legacy characters, what it was like rebooting Doom Patrol, which Archie character's death upset him so much he had to step away from the keyboard, and much more.
