Comics You Can Dance To #10: Matt Wilson: Meta-QuicksandA column article, Comics You Can Dance To by: Danny Djeljosevic, Nathaniel MacDonald
Comics You Can Dance To is Comics Bulletin's official podcast!
Hosted by Nathaniel MacDonald and Danny Djeljosevic (that's me) and supported by various jokers and guests, Comics You Can Dance To is devoted to discussing cool comics, pop culture nonsense and hopefully introducing you to some awesome music along the way.
This week our guest is Matt Wilson, who has hats in many pies or however that turn of phrase goes. He writes the robot noir webcomic Copernicus Jones, he's the brain behind various Internet comedy projects and he's one of the hosts of War Rocket Ajax, one of my favorite podcasts. We talk about all that stuff, plus his upcoming book, The Supervillain Handbook, which comes out in April. Scroll down for all the links to his various Internet concerns.
It's a really fun talk, as you might expect from a few guys who make it their business to converse in MP3 form.

We're talking to Joe Keatinge, writer of Image Comics' Glory relaunch and the upcoming Hell Yeah and editor of the Popgun anthologies. I know this because it already happened. And we might have some special interviews from Image Expo! I know this because it's currently happening.
