Behind The Panels One-Shot – The Christian Read Interview

Behind the Panels - Christian Read Interview

This week, Richard and David had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Christian Read, the Australia writer of the new novel from Gestalt, Black City. He’s perhaps best known in the comics world for his mystical Western graphic novel The Eldritch Kid: Whiskey & Hate with artist Michael Maier.

Christian chats about the Australian comic book industry, magic and the writing of Black City, his comic work with The Eldritch Kid and Unmasked, along with upcoming projects Dread Empire, more Eldritch Kid and the anthology series Home Brew Vampire Bullets.

We need to thank Christian Read for his generous time and joining us in the studio, and we hope you enjoy this insightful interview with one of Australia’s most interesting writers.

Chrisian Read will appear at the Oz Comic-Con in Melbourne on 6 and 7 July 2013 at the Gestalt Comics table. Drop in and say hi and buy some comics. You can buy tickets to the event at: http://www.ozcomiccon.com/
