Hello and welcome to Orbital In Conversation – the podcast of Orbital Comics in central London! Double Down December continues as Orbital In Conversation comes out twice a week for the next month.
As a long-term comics fan – and events manager at Orbital Comics in central London – it’s always fun to do something more than just your average signing. Meeting a creator and having them sign your stuff is all well and good, but I really love the little things that happen in between … The anecdotes and stories creators share while people are in line or waiting at their table.
It got me thinking: what if there was a way to do that and provide a framework wherein people could talk about what went into the making of a book? And so, the Orbital Directors’ Commentaries were born! We’ve since had the pleasure of hosting Chip Zdarsky to discuss Howard The Duck, Mike Carey talking about The Unwritten, and Becky Cloonan discussing her work on Gotham Academy.
In our most recent commentary, Noelle Stevenson led us on a guided tour through the latest collection of Lumberjanes (Volume 2) from Boom! Studios. Noelle discussed what it was like collaborating with the rest of the Lumberjanes team – sharing stories, revealing secrets, and giving the kind of insight you couldn’t get anywhere else. So enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for future Orbital Director’s Commentary nights!
