(Recorded July 11, 2015)
A special “point one” episode where we got to talk with ROBBI RODRIGUEZ, the co-creator of Spider-Gwen! It flew by quickly for us, but we covered a lot of ground!
In this episode, you’ll learn about Robbi’s early influences, the beginnings of his career (including how he met fellow co-creator Jason Latour), and his creator-owned work Frankie Get Your Gun. We discuss how Spider-Gwen ended up in the unique position of resembling a “creator owned” book at a major publisher and got the inside perspective on how much music really influences the series – not just in terms of its style, but how the team works together to plan and create each issue!
Robbi also talked about balancing his work process around his eye condition, his experience with how fans have embraced the book, and his protective feelings for Gwen as a character. And yes, we talked about a certain sketch cover…
We also found out his favorite moments from the series so far, setting up “ground rules” for other writers to follow, and got some cool hints on what’s in store for “season two” this Fall!
This was a really fun and informative conversation for us – we hope that you enjoy it!
