Listen to Graphic Policy Radio with Guest Brenden Fletcher on Demand

On demand: iTunes ¦ Sound Cloud ¦ Stitcher

Graphic Policy Radio interviewed writer Brenden Fletcher for our podcast and if you like his work (Batgirl, Black Canary, Gotham Academy) and/or care about creating inclusive comics in which young people, people of color, women and girls and LGBTQ people are represented then you should give it a listen.

We got to break some news last night! Brenden just received new pages drawn by the great Ming Doyle (who we interviewed the week before). The two share a gothic aesthetic so it’s a great collaboration. Not sure which project it will be for…perhaps the Batgirl Annual?

Helen Chen, the artist who drew the painterly, charming and lightly Miyazaki-ish Gotham Academy #7, will be an artist for the Batgirl Annual.

I invented the concept of Schrodinger’s Oracle. Dare we look into the box (issue 41) to see if there’s a new Oracle? Brenden’s response to my question was rather specific.

If future issues of Brenden’s books are late it’s because I told him about Gravity Falls, a TV cartoon I describe as Twin Peaks for kids. Oops.

We learned the inspiration behind rock and roll Black Canary, Brenden’s musical past, some hidden Batman characters in Gotham Academy and the secret behind why Montreal is a comics hub (it has something to do with public policy…)

And that’s just the beginning!

He’s currently writing the Black Canary series for DC Comics while continuing to co-write Batgirl with Cameron Stewart and Gotham Academy with Becky Cloonan.

We’ll be discussing Brenden’s entire career but especially his work on Gotham Academy, Batgirl, and the brand new Black Canary which debuts in comic shops this week.
