Word Balloon: Tim Seeley
This time on Word Balloon, we talk to artist/writer Tim Seeley, who's creator owned series Hack Slash is nominated for Best Comic Book Series in this Tuesday's Scream Awards on Spike TV.During this moment of mainstream awareness and acceptance, the book is in the midst of a crossover with the Re-Animator film series. Seeley arranged the crossover with the film's producer and rights holder Brian Yunza. However, as discussed in this press release, the book has fallen into a property dispute with a separate company called Re-Animator LLC, forcing Seeley and publisher Devil's Due to find alternative distribution, other than Diamond, for issues issues #16 & #17. Tim discusses the basics of this public domain dispute, and explains how fans and comic retailers can order the arc's final two chapters.
We also talk about Tim's upcoming run on Marvel's New Exiles series which debuts with writer Chris Claremont in November's #14. Click here for the episode.
