Gerry Duggan talks comics, photography, and reveals the full spectrum of his human experience
This week, Gerry Duggan joins the AIPT Comics podcast to discuss his new Kickstarter Timing/Luck! We dig into his passion for photography, the inspirations of the book, and how it differs from writing. You can back Timing/Luck here (just 11 days left to back it!). We also discuss his highly anticipated series The Invincible Iron Man, and what to expect from his upcoming comedy one-shot Halloween Party with Brian Posehn and Scott Koblish. We also run through the Colbert Questionnaire (revealing the full spectrum of his human experience)! Here's a rundown of the questions Gerry answers:As of the air time of this interview, Timing/Luck has 11 days left to back on Kickstarter, featuring scenes in Hollywood, from behind the scenes in comics, and street photography, how many years of work does this book span?Is there different itch photography scratches for you outside of writing comics?There’s something solitary about writing, and maybe even as a photographer as you’re behind the lens so to speak, what motivates you to put yourself out there in your photography and your comics writing?You also got Halloween Party coming out October 12, 2022, with Brian Posehn and Scott Koblish, why must Scotch McTiernan’s story continue in this adventure after your 4:20 special?!I’d be remiss not to ask about you kicking off Invincible Iron Man with Juan Frigeri in December, how long has this project been in the works?Are there any story arcs fans should pick up to prepare for your run?When writing comedy, big team books like X-Men, or solo heroes like Iron Man, do you have any methods to getting into the right mindset, be it a mood board of imager, or music?[caption id="attachment_451509" align="aligncenter" width="680"] The cover to Timing/Luck.[/caption]It’s tantalizing to know Timing/Luck peers behind the curtain showing comics creators, actors, and regular people behind the curtain, so to speak, so I was wondering if we could run through the Colbert Quesionairre so that you can be known, to the listeners, would that be okay?
