Episode 089 - Return of the King w/ Comic Book Legend - Jim Shooter

Midnight, On Earth

In this episode we reconnect with the man himself, the current King of comics, comic book legend Jim Shooter. Jim returns to the show to give us an update on where he is now, and the state of the comic book industry as a whole. We then dive into a special segment of the show, never before attempted, bringing in 4 special guests each reflecting on certain points in Jim's career. The guests are: Greg Holland - Director of Valiantfans.com, the major VALIANT Comics fan site, Jim Hollister - The leading DEFIANT Comics collector and host of the DEFIANT Comics Museum, Zach Lynch - Original DEFIANT Comics intern, and Scott Braden - Broadway Comics specialist and contributor to the recent 'Overstreet Guide to Lost Universes'.. This is a very special episode and a tribute to the incredible work of Jim Shooter's career. Listen In!Jim Shooter Bio:Jim Shooter is an American writer, editor and publisher for various comic books. He started professionally in the medium at the age of 13 at what is now DC Comics , and he is most notable for his legendary 1978 – 1987 run as Marvel Comics' editor-in-chief, and his work as editor in chief of Valiant Comics. He was also both the creator and EIC of DEFIANT Comics, and Broadway Comics. During his tenure at Marvel, the company enjoyed some of its best successes. He believed that every title, no matter how unpopular it was, deserved a chance to succeed. He abandoned the long-time Marvel Comics policy that allocated the best writers to the best-selling titles. This allowed some of the second-string titles, such as The Uncanny X-Men and Daredevil, to reach then-unprecedented heights of popularity. After leaving Marvel, he fronted an effort to purchase the publisher from its corporate ownership, losing out at the last minute to a slightly higher bid. He then founded a new company, Voyager Communications, which published comics under the Valiant Comics banner, Valiant entered the superhero market with a relaunch of the Gold Key Comics character Magnus, Robot Fighter. Shooter brought many of Marvel's creators to Valiant, including people like Steve Ditko and Barry Windsor-Smith, as well as industry veterans such as Art Nichols, John Dixon, and Don Perlin. Jim founded Defiant Comics in 1993, Broadway comics in 1995,with many other positions, gigs, and comics written between then and today. Currently Jim is the EIC of illustrated media, a custom comic book company. Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
