I’ve done a fair share of interviews with comic creators over the past few years, and some people you think are going to be awesome, turn out to be not so much...and then there are others that, for whatever reasons, you think are going to be crappy interviews, and they turn into great ones. And then, you interview someone who you have so much respect for...and they turn out to be freakin’ amazing people.
The latter is the case with Simon Bisley.
Simon, in case you don’t know, was a big part of the “british invasion” in the late 80’s and early 90’s in comics. Along with such creators from across the pond such as Grant Morrison, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore and painter Glenn Fabry (whom I got an interview with as well), Simon took the American comics world by storm and changed the entire scope of comics...forever.
Bisley’s out of control, take no prisoners art style has made its impact on comics history, but his legacy is truly how he took a minor, b-list, skinny, alien bounty hunter named Lobo, and made him a muscle-bound, foul mouthed, womanizing, heavy metal badassed DC Comics icon!
