This episode of The Hyper Room is with Matt Wagner creator of Mage and Grendel as well as working on characters like The Demon, Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman, The Shadow, Sandman Mystery Theater and so many more.
I’ve been in love with Mage ever since Matt Wagner walked into The Comicshop those many years ago. My first time meeting a real live comic book creator AND he was doing his very own comic book!
I talk to Matt about his career, how he first got published by Comico, how he comes up with his ideas, how he works and where the Mage series is headed, now halfway through the final part of its trilogy in Mage: the Hero Denied published by Image Comics. This interview focuses on Mage and hopefully, Matt will come back to do a full episode on Grendel and also I’d love to sit down again with him when Mage is completed and go into a deep talk about the entire trilogy.
If you haven’t read this series, start with Mage: The Hero Discovered below and discover why magic is green.
