Scott Snyder is the guest on this
week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is an
award-winning writer of graphic novels such as All-Star Batman,
Detective Comics, American Vampire, The Wake and Swamp Thing.
During this week's show, Scott and
Chauncey discuss what it is like to write an iconic character such
as Batman, questions of "diversity" and "inclusion" in comic books,
the craft of storytelling and world-building, and how politics and
the rise of Donald Trump should (or should not) be reflected in
comic books and popular culture more generally.
Friend of the podcast Bill the
Lizard also stops by The Chauncey DeVega Show as well.
Bill offers his thoughts on the controversy about the new Marvel
comics storyline where Captain America is an agent of Hydra (i.e. a
Nazi). Bill and Chauncey also talk offer some thoughts on the new
Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie trailer.
In this week's podcast, Chauncey is
angry that his enemies gave him cooties, shares some thoughts on
how the Republican Party wants to kill poor and sick people, and
ponders what quotes from the movie "Patton" that the ghouls in the
Republican Party used to motivate themselves prior to their vote to
destroy the Affordable Care Act on Thursday.
