QBP #030 - Malibu, Rune & Writing Comics in the 90s

Quarter-Bin Podcast #30 -- Interview with Paul O'Connor

NOTE: There are a few slight audio issues in the first 15 minutes of this episode, but the Skype connection cleared up quickly, and I hope the issues are not too distracting.

For the first time ever in the long and illustrious history of the Quarter-Bin Podcast, we actually talk with the scripter of one of our comics ... two of our comics, actually. Our last two comics, as a matter of fact. I had a great chat with Paul O'Connor, who wrote Rune 4 & Rune 5, the books we covered in episodes 28 & 29.

We talk about those comics, of course, but we also talk about being in the comic book industry in the wacky 1990s, and about his excellent comic book blog, The Longbox Graveyard.

  1. Great interview, Professor. :D

    Ultraverse is another of those imprints I've been eager to finally sit down and check out. Some great writers in there, and have always been intrigued by what I've heard of the universe they constructed.

  2. Thanks, Noel. I appreciate the feedback. I look forward to finding some more Malibu books in the cheap boxes.
