INTERVIEW WITH JOHN MARRS

The Passengers John Marrs Berkley Press August 27th, 2019 The Passengers by John Marrs is a pulse-pounding read.

This is exactly what takes place in England because of a government regulation banning all driver controlled cars. Although car death tolls have gone down, they still happen. Mandated is a jury to...

Interview with Ed Brubaker

Jon: Ed, you and Sean Phillips have been working together a long time. How has your collaboration evolved and what are the advantages to a partnership like this? It’s hard to say how it’s evolved. It’s still basically the same as it’s always been. I sent Sean some pages and he never wants to know what’s coming next, so he’s like a first reader. The advantages are uncountable. We trust each other, and we know what the other can do, and we know that we both like to do different things a lot. When I write a script for Sean its much less detailed than when I write one for someone else, because I know what he...
