Ahead of the release of Chapter 2, ‘The Legend of William Lamport’ author Eoin McAuley spoke about the project in depth with John Siuntres of the Word Balloon Podcast.
Word Balloon is currently in its 15th year and for the past decade and a half John has been interviewing comic creators from many different publishers and has amassed a very impressive archive of insightful discussions with comic creators about their work and careers.
The full Word Balloon podcast archive is available for free here.
If you wish to support the Podcast Mr. Siuntres has a Patreon account here.
During the McAuley interview background to the project’s development and an overview of Lamport’s biography is discussed. Other topics are touched upon as well such as classic swashbuckling films and wider discussions on mainstream comics and the Irish Comic Book Community in general.
You can listen to and/or download the full interview here.
There will also be a video recording of the interview posted to the Word Balloon YouTube page which you can subscribe to for free here.
