Justin Shady and Erik Rose Interview (The Roberts)

Justin Shady / Erik Rose Interview

This time we’re joined by Justin Shady and Erik Rose, the creative team behind The Roberts, to talk about the book, what projects they have in the works, and pretty much what it takes to come up with a story about serial killers in a retirement home.

Since this interview is about six times longer than our average ones, it’s a bigger piece to digest, but don’t let that detract you. Listen to the whole thing, all sixty-plus minutes of it, and get to know two of Image Comics’ latest rising stars.

27:43 – 38:32: Influences: From Garfield to Animals / The Roberts Theme Song and Musical
38:33 – 42:32: The secret behind the Jorge Garcia and the Richard Ramirez quotes
42:33 – 46:55: Serial killers in general
46:56 – 51:28: Justin’s earlier work: Heaven, LLC and Bad Ideas
51:29 – 53:54: Tales from Image Comics
53:55 – 56:37: Upcoming Convention News (Dallas*Con) and why you should consider painting a comic with human blood
