WCPE Episode 135 – Interview with Mark Russell


Coming to you from Kansas City, Portland, and even the town of Bedrock, the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! is proud to have writer Mark Russell from DC Comics’ The Flintstones.

Given control of a very old licensed property (pun intended), Mark has turned The Flintstones into one of the best books in the market with its brutally honest commentary on civilization, whether in the Stone Age or the Modern Age. Turns out the issues involving war, marriage, and religion* are the same in any era.

Besides The Flintstones, we discuss the power and influences of science fiction in shaping Mark as a writer, discuss his work on the far-too-short Prez reboot, and look ahead to the next Hanna-Barbera property that Mark will be writing.

After the interview, we talk about our current comic reading, DC’s announcement of digital codes and a price hike, and a major announcement regarding our Best of 2016 contest still running! Seriously, we have upped the ante on our prize. No excuses for not getting entered! MARCH right over to the link above and make your picks!
