Episode 103: The Gerry Conway Interview

It’s a big episode this week, folks!  Not only does the Irredeemable Shag return to his semi-regular co-host spot but also we got to “sit down” and have a two hour conversation with a writer that pretty much embodied the word prolific in the seventies and eighties.  Gerry Conway joins us and in those two hours we only scratched the surface of his career in comics and television.  What we did cover was choice however and we get some behind the scenes info on the creation of Firestorm, Steel: The Indestructible Man, Justice League Detroit, the Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man special, DC during the Explosion and Implosion and much, much more.  We even get to talk some Law and Order: Criminal Intent, which was really cool because I am a huge fan of that show.

I would like to thank Gerry once again for taking the time to do this interview and a big thank you to Shag for setting it up.

At one point towards the end of the interview Gerry  mentions Phillip Jose Farmer’s Wold Newton Universe and Shag suggested putting a link to something about that in the show notes.  Well here you go. Check it out because it is quite fascinating.  Scroll down a bit past the ad to find the content.

Next week: Zach (a.k.a. Spideydude) and I talk the Clone Saga.  Well, Zach talks the Clone Saga and I chime in once in a while.




    Good interview guys. Very nice to hear Gerry’s thoughts on the comic book industry and on the characters he created.

    I still like to think that Steel would have ended up with Kathy Kulhammer, but that’s neither here nor there at this point.

  2. Great interview. The response to why he created Gypsy and Vibe cracked me the heck up. Can’t wait for that next Bat-Week episode! 😉

  3. hey mike. Just letting you know the last few episodes have been phenomenal, and well worth the wait. PEACH.

  4. Even though Im way away from qualifying for Boston- even under the old standards- I think it was the right decision. Boston is about bringing together the best performing athletes, and the change directly supports those goals. I didnt think about the September registration that Cathleen brought up. It doesnt seem like opening registration the week after New York would be too close to the actual race I wonder what the logic to that was.

  5. Please keep on dropping such quality storys as this is a rare thing to find these days. I am always searching online for storys that can help me. watching forward to another great blog. Good luck to the author! all the best!

  6. I must show appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of scenario. Because of browsing through the the web and meeting basics that were not beneficial, I was thinking my life was gone. Living without the presence of answers to the difficulties you’ve fixed by way of your post is a crucial case, and those that could have adversely damaged my career if I had not encountered your blog post. Your good expertise and kindness in playing with every aspect was valuable. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a solution like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the professional and amazing guide. I will not hesitate to propose your web page to any person who wants and needs counselling on this topic.
