It’s not everyday you get to sit down with a living legend… and to be fair, you didn’t – but we did! And you get to watch! This week we’re bringing you a very special episode of the Skybound Insider featuring the man himself, Mr. Greg Rucka.
Rucka is both a comic book writer and novelist, known for his work on Action Comics, Batwoman, Detective Comics, and Lazarus. He is both a DC and Marvel comics alum, as well as doing work for Omni, and our very own Image. His latest release, The Old Guard, has been received with rave reviews and wrapped up it’s first arc in late 2017. His works have won a GLAAD media award, a Harvey award and three Eisner Awards.
Clearly, Greg Rucka is a force to be reckoned with.
In this interview Rucka not only walks us through how his career began (writing his Atticus Kodiak series) and advice for new writers, but his emotional state through the phases of his career. We’d like this to serve as a trigger warning for discussions of depression and suicidal thoughts. If you experience suicidal thoughts, we encourage you to phone the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255, reach out to loved ones, and seek professional guidance. You are not alone.
Thank you so much to Greg for sitting down with us and we hope you all enjoy the sage wisdom from a man with much to teach… seriously, so so much. Enjoy.
