In this transmission from Central City Underground, we save you from the dulcet tones of WCCU Radio once again and interject with a fun and enlightening conversation with Greg Weisman of Young Justice. Weisman’s credits are deep and wide and we discuss old and current projects alike, including a relatively new medium for him: novels. Read more…
We spend a good chunk of time talking about the differences between writing novels and writing for animated series, some of the challenges he’s faced, and ways he’s been stretched creatively. Right now Weisman has two novels available of a 9 book series. As mentioned in the episode, you can purchase these books on Amazon! The first installment, [[[Rain of the Ghosts]]], was published in December of 2014. The second installment, [[[Spirits of Ash and Foam]]], was published back at the beginning of July. We’re excited to read these books ourselves and discuss with Weisman at a later date!
More topics of conversation include who Weisman’s favorite DC character is, how he got his start in the business, what have been his most rewarding projects, and, the question we’ve all been turning over in our heads, why was Young Justice cancelled? The answer MAY surprise you! It surprised us.
The Green Arrow short he spoke of can be found on [[[Superman/Batman: Apocalypse]]] or you can watch it here!
