IDEAS DON'T BLEED episode seven | Zeb Wells, part one
Chapter 72: When they hear you’ve attacked a diplomatic--
WELCOME BACK TO IDEAS DON’T BLEED!
This week, we’re joined by the Amazing, Spectacular, Web of Zeb Wells (Amazing Spider-Man / Hellions / She-Hulk) as we discuss his career, his time away and subsequent return to comics, and his current run on Amazing Spider-Man!
IDB is an all-new weekly podcast presented by Ashcan Press and featuring Matthew Rosenberg, the Supple Boiz, and wonderful guests from the world of comic books!
Our theme song is “Where’s the Poison” by Summer People
Zeb is one of the best writers in comics. It pains me to say that sometimes, because he is also funnier than me, more charming, and nicer. But he is. He is also a person I have a ton of respect and admiration for. So when I thought about starting IDEAS DON’T BLEED it was a no-brainer that I would talk to him. What I didn’t know at the time was that he was going to be taking over AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. It is some amazing serendipity because I was just going to ask him about watching boats go by on the East River and why he thinks it’s okay to be so much nicer than the people around him. But this ended up being a much better conversation.
And just as a reminder to you all, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t point out that WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? #8 has its final order cutoff today at local comic shops. If you’ve been reading the book it would be a good time to remind your local comic shop that you will still be reading it. And if you’ve been thinking about checking it out, this issue was designed to be a jumping on point for the series. So, again, ask your local comic shop to get it for you. Thanks so much. We appreciate you.
Hope you like the show.
Stay safe. Take care of each other. Get haunted.
