There are a lot of really good comics out there right now, but DIE – Fantasy Heartbreaker may very well be among the standouts of the last year. Described as “goth Jumanji”, it expertly deconstructs tropes of fantasy and tabletop adventuring. With stellar art by Stephanie Hans, and an impactful narrative constructed by Kieron Gillen, we’re really big fans.
So, when I got the opportunity to snag Kieron Gillen and discuss the project with him, I couldn’t pass it up. Take a listen as he talks about the responsibility that geek culture has to itself, reflections on the “cost” of gaming, and much more.
Many thanks to Mr. Gillen for making the time during a packed weekend!
