Buffyfest Podcast Interview with IDW's Mariah Huehner and David Tischman

It occurs to me that we have one more interview from SDCC that has been left all by it's lonely.  Today that will be remedied.  It seems fitting, now that the craziness from the licensing move has begun to die down, that we can release this audio interview with Mariah and David.  It's funny, at the time we conducted the interview, it seemed like the plan was to keep the fact that they would be taking over the writing under wraps but, a day later, the announcement got made.  Oh, well.  A little egg on the face never hurt anyone.  This is a long interview that we're keeping to an audio format.  However, here are a few bullet points of what we talked about:

- The origin of the True Blood Comic

- Why Mariah and David like to write about supernatural characters

- Differences between writing for True Blood and writing for Angel

- What makes for a good TV licensed comic and what doesn't

- What matters most to Angel

It's a really great listen and, honestly, just hearing some of their answers made me feel really good about where IDW is going to be taking Angel, Spike, & Co. for the last leg of their journey.  Enjoy!

postscript: Mariah and David recently did an interview with Comic Book Resources.  I'll keep an eye out for it and link to it here once it goes live.

Thankyou for posting this. David and Mariah's understanding of the characters is wonderful. I do look forward to these final issues of IDW's Angelverse. Of course, it's an excitement tinged with sadness that their comics will end in April.
