Episode 33: Brisson & The Bronx

It’s comics meets the post apocalypse as we welcome creator/writer Ed Brisson (Sheltered, Cluster, The Violent) to the show to talk about his career, influences and determination to get into the world of comic books. We discuss his beginnings as an indie filmmaker, writing a “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off, getting to live every comics fan dream of scripting Batman, and so much more!

For the second half of this episode we also gave Ed the chance to pick a movie for us to talk about and, much to our chagrin and (more so) delight, he chose the 1982 Italian knock-off, 1990: The Bronx Warriors. Take a journey with us into the futuristic 1990(!) world of New York where gangs roam the wasteland that is the Bronx as “Trash” (Mark Gregory) and his gang have to protect a misplaced heiress from other gangs and the malicious cop sent to bring her back to the safety of Manhattan. From director Enzo G. Castellari (Keoma, The Last Shark), this is Italian rip-offing at its finest.
