Episode 415 – The Van Lenteverse f/ Fred Van Lente

This week we’re so pleased to be talking with our pal Fred Van Lente about his new novel, The Con Artist, as well as real-life con experiences (his and others’) that inspired the book, peppering the real and the fictional into the story, comics history, pitching the idea for a Comic-Con murder mystery, writing a book with an unusual structure, future comics work, and much more! Plus, we take a casting-based listener question!

  1. I feel like “a brisk constitutional” would be item #1 on Batman’s to do list every morning. Or afternoon, or whenever the hell he wakes up.
