Fear Itself and Casanova writer Matt Fraction becomes our first Five-Timers Club member this week! We ask what he’d like other writers to learn from Fear Itself, what real-life stuff led him to subject matter, that scene from Casanova: Avaritia II, how he celebrated Halloween, how he’s preparing for Christmas (already!), how much visual stuff he puts in his scripts and a ton more! Plus, Matt and Chris become more and more exacerbated while talking about the nonsensical plot of Arkham City (which they both recommend, by the way).
- Fraction’s a superstar on Twitter, so follow him if you’re not. And he has a website he just remembered!
- Santa, NO! (NSFW)
