The Bleed Episode 12: Reading Blacksad: Amarillo With Colorist Nathan Fairbairn

By Joseph Kyle Schmidt

The Bleed is a weekly book club by Bleeding Cool contributors Joseph Schmidt and Sam Morse. The group meets every Wednesday on Google Hangout to discuss news, the latest comics, creator interviews and the pick of the week.

This week we are welcomed by prolific colorist Nathan Fairbairn who has worked on Seconds, the Scott Pilgrim re-releases, and the instant Multiversity: Pax Americana.


Aside from talking about his background and working process, we speak with Nathan about his pick for the book club, Blacksad: Amarillo. The latest installment in Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido's anthropomorphic noir series was recently translated and released by Dark Horse, so make sure you check it out!

You can download us if you're on the go here or take a listen below. We're looking to get listed on the iTunes directory and making it as easy as possible for you to stay updated with all of our latest ramblings. Look forward to that soon!
