I’m late in linking to this, but I was late in listening to it, as well; as part of his wonderful Decompressed podcast series, Kieron Gillen has an episode where Mark Waid and Matt Fraction discuss the pros and cons of writing “Marvel Method” (ie, detailed plot to artist, artist creates pace on page, page then gets dialogued by the writer). If you’re a process wonk like I am, it’s a must-hear, just like the shownotes are a must-read. I mean, the complete plot and Jamie McKelvie’s black and white unlettered art for Defenders #9?
RSH returns to the BAR, drink tray but with one empty glass now, and we see DANNY RAND is the bartender. Is it weird to have him shirtless but for a bow-tie, like a Chippendales’ dancer? Probably so, probably so. Well… barring that, then, he’d be in a tuxedo dress shirt with sleeves rolled up and a loosened bowtie. They exchange some kind of back and forth.
That’s pretty great, right there.
