Orbital In Conversation With Dustin Nguyen On Descender And More!

By Chris Thompson


Descender1After last week's Angoulême BD Festival special (which you can still listen to here), this time I'm back with the incredible Dustin Nguyen to discuss his exciting new sci-fi series, Descender, from Image Comics.

Dustin and I discuss how he started out, the way his art has changed and evolved over time, what it's like writing scripts as opposed to drawing comics, and how he approaches realism in a series like Descender.

Plus, as an extra bonus, I chat with creators Owen Michael Johnson & John Pearson about their new project, Beast Wagon, which is currently on Kickstarter and featured in the Orbital Gallery. We discuss how they met, where the idea came from, and what they've got planned.

And never fear, you can still enjoy the Pop Culture Hound back-catalogue right here, as we continue to put out the same quality interviews and discussion with Orbital in Conversation going forward. It's only gonna get better, folks!
