I want to run into Stuart’s comic book store and yell, ‘I’m interviewing Chuck Dixon!’

COMING IN SEPTEMBER! My Interview with iconic, comic book writer, Chuck Dixon. Writer for Batman, the Avenger, and many more legendary characters. He also wrote for many years for the TV hit animation, The Simpsons.

a.Dixon.BATman.CoverWhen I asked him,  Chuck, you are such an icon in the comic book and animated TV world. What inspired you to switch from that genre to writing fiction?

Chuck:  “I simply got tired of waiting for someone else’s permission to write. The possibilities offered by digital publishing are endless. Why go through the painful, tedious, and often fruitless, process of pitches and development when I can go from idea to finished product on my own? I turned to prose because of the massive production expenses involved with doing comics. My only investment is my time. And, truth to tell, there are a lot more people who read prose than read comics. I’m reaching readers now that I never could have reached writing comic books.

TS. Was that a challenge to switch to a novel format and ‘point-of-view’?

Chuck: Mostly it was the intimidation factor. In comics, my chosen medium, the A. Simpsons.Dixonbench for writing talent is pretty thin. But in prose fiction I’m up against thousands of years of awesome writing. I mean, who the hell do I think I am going to work in the same shop as Alexander Dumas or Jane Austen?

The interview will also appear in the September issue of IndyFest Magazine. Chuck was so generous and funny! DON’T MISS IT!!!
