173 Sean Lewis and Hayden Sherman on Thumbs (Image Comics)
Returning is writer and playwright Sean Lewis who was last on episode #127 talking about his series Coyotes (Image Comics).
Sean provides the details behind the ending of that series with issue #8 and looks forward with his new series Thumbs on sale June 5th.
Making his debut on Creator Talks is artist Hayden Sherman (Cold War, Mary Shelley Monster Hunter / Aftershock).
Hayden collaborated with Sean on their series The Few (Image Comics) and team-up again for Thumbs.
What is the story of Thumbs?
“Imagine someone like Mark Zuckerberg created his own army of tech-obsessed teens and directed them to take on the government. What would the fallout be?"
Charley “Thumbs” Fellows is a member of just such an army. Poor and raised by the influential MOM™ app, he finds himself in the center of a war.
How does Hayden use color to show the proliferation of technology?
We talk about technology and ask the question, are we giving up too much info by using social media, for too little in return?
What is the real product of social media?
Are we at risk of further isolation and de-humanization through VR?
All this plus I ask what my guest think is the greatest invention of the 21st century.
