WTC Interview Special: Matthew Sturges


Matthew Sturges. Who else would it be?

Keith and Brett sit down with some cold beverages and empty notepads to talk to writer Matthew Sturges about his new projects with Devil’s Due / 1First Comics.

What starts as a chat about Sturges’ & John Lucas’ up-coming graphic novel The Four Norsemen of the Apocalypse transforms into an inspection of the creative impulse and the loss of faith.

Also, lots and lots of laughs!

We also talk about Matthew’s past work including Jack of Fables, and what is the same and different about working on monthly super-hero comics vs an editor-less creator-owned graphic novel

When ace fighter pilot Bendix ‘Falcon’ Falk dies in Afghanistan, he finds himself transported to Valhalla. Which seems cool until he learns that there are no girls and you die every day. Breaking out with the help of three other dead Norsemen, Falk soon runs afoul of gods, demons, and Bendix’ own dead father. Can four dead guys save the Universe? Probably not, but it’s fun to watch them try. Narrated by God (really!).

Just a note that there is the odd curse word in this episode. After all, as Keith tells Matthew, “this ain’t f***ing Word Balloon.”

Pre-order The Four Norsemen of the Apocalypse now! And check out Matthew Sturges’s on-going series, Public Relations, both from 1First Comics.
