Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada will appear tonight on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report at 11:30 p.m. ET. Per Marvel’s press release, “Colbert will grill Joe Q. on everything from Civil War to his career as an artist. And if they have time, maybe even a moment to reflect on Stephen’s intense dislike of grizzly bears.”
Quesada spoke to Matt Brady about his appearance in the weekly New Joe Fridays feature a couple of weeks ago:
NRAMA: Joe, something that’s going around the Internet – are you really going to be a guest on the Colbert Report on July 27th?
JQ: Yup, seems Marvel Civil War is everywhere these days!
NRAMA: You a fan of the show?
JQ: I’m a huge fan of the show, both Colbert and John Stewart are brilliant, I watch them both religiously. It’s the best stuff on TV. I can’t wait to be “nailed” by Colbert! Hmmm, that didn’t come out sounding right did it?
NRAMA: No, it did not…
How did that get set up, and what in the world are you going to talk about?
JQ: They contacted me directly and I believe they want to talk comics and Civil War.
NRAMA: How much will it cost us for you to wear your Newsarama t-shirt?
JQ: It’s free but I doubt anyone will see it under my “READ COMICS,” t-shirt.
It ought to be a fun show.
