Segment: Interview with Comicstorian (aka Benny Potter)
Podcaster, Youtuber, comics writer for a backup in Bloodshot #12
- Comicstorian, can you tell us a little about yourself and how you started your empire of podcasting and YouTube’ing?
- You recently got a chance to write a backup in Bloodshot #12, how did that gig come about?
- The backup looks so cool, showing huge moments in Bloodshot’s life in short dynamic bursts. What was the collaboration process like with Juan Jose Ryp?
- Do you have anything else cooking with Valiant or another comics publisher?
- I see you’ve covered Valiant Comics a good bit on your channel. What to you is the ultimate appeal of the Valiant Universe?
- As a verifiable comics expert, what are your top 3 comics of all time?
- You’re also a Twitch partner, which I think qualifies you as something of a renaissance man. What are you playing right now and do you have any comic-related games you’d recommend to listeners?
- I’ve heard it’s too late to get into the YouTube game, Marques Brownlee said this on an AMA, but I was curious as someone who has such a history working at it, do you think so and if not...any tips for fledgling video creators?
- Are there any other projects you’d like to discuss or plug today?
