Restarting Jan’s Atomic Hearts with Simon Roy!

Episode 82 – Restarting Jan’s Atomic Hearts with Simon Roy!

by Chris Thompson

With Simon Roy …


After last week’s Hellboy Day specials with Mike Mignola and friends (which you can still listen to here), this time around I catch up with rising star Simon Roy (Prophet, Murder Book, Jan’s Atomic Heart) ahead of this week’s Emerald City Comicon.


Simon & I discuss how he first broke into comics, working on Prophet with Brandon Graham and The Field with Ed Brisson, as well as the perils and pitfalls of making your early work available again. It’s a great chat with a young writer/artist whose career is on an upward trajectory!
