Ron Marz Talks Virgin Comics

Ron Marz (WITCHBLADE / TopCow, THE PATH / CrossGen, SOJOURN / CrossGen, SAMURAI : HEAVEN and EARTH / Dark Horse, GREEN LANTERN / DC) speaks about his upcoming stint on Virgin Comics as editor of the SHAKTI line that includes SADHU, DEVI and RAMAYAN 3K.

He is my editor for SADHU and DEVI and so far it has been a great experience working with Ron who brings enormous amount of experience to the table and is very patient with a greenhorn like me who more often than not botches things up biting more than he can chew :D

BTW, even though he does not mention me by name, I am alluded to as the “writer from the exotic land of massachussets:D

You can read the full text of his interview here

India Authentic #1 / Ganesha featured in a french comics site

I was pleasantly surprised to receive a mail in my inbox the other day which was sent as a comment to the previous post detailing the previews for my upcoming Virgin Comics titles.

I am one that believes that great stories have no national boundaries and have an identity / resonance all their own. This was a pleasantly reassuring confirmation of my posit. :)
