Attack on Titan is a very interesting, new anime series from creator Hajime Isayama and Funimation Studios about a group of young military cadets in a battle for survival against gigantic, ravenous humanoids called Titans. The series has taken the world by storm with its intense action and emotional storyline, but is it really all it’s cracked up to be?

You know what I love about independent comics? They can explore so many ideas that mainstream comics can’t. There is a freedom that indie creators have to really push boundaries and try out new characters, concepts, and motivations that you just don’t see every day in the mainstream comics world.

The following is an interview with Eisner Award-nominated Deron Bennett (letterer of Tale of Sand, Cyborg 009, Thrilling Adventure Hour, Masters of the Universe), writer of the creator-owned comic book series Quixote. In this interview, Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Jason Enright chats with Bennett about his sci-fi and fantasy take on the age-old Don Quiote tale, the process of working with artist Dan Mora and letterer Paul Little, and the future of the comic book series.

This interview was conducted on May 8, 2014.

Telling the story of a new comic hero in a new world can be hard. How do you handle the necessary exposition and develop your characters while maintaining pace and capturing the attention of your audience? A lot of first issues struggle with this, and some just knock it right out of the park. Happily, I can say that Quixote by Deron Bennett is from the latter category. He manages to introduce his title character, Quixote, his sidekick, the villain, and the backstory that will support this new world all in the first issue, while leaving room for a wonderful fight sequence and a great cliffhanger. This book is everything you would want in a first issue. Exposition is delivered in bits of snappy dialogue between characters that not only sets the plot in motion, but gives you an insight into their motivation and background. Bennett manages to build a great, new fantasy setting with bits of sci-fi, introduces his cast of characters, and delivers on the action all at one time without sacrificing any one element for the others, and that is just the writing.

As listeners of The PREVIEWS Party Podcast will know, we are always excited to update you on the new comic book titles that will be headed your way in the coming months.  For that reason, we were excited to chat with Chris Miskiewicz and Palle Schmidt, the writer and artist (respectively) of the new comic book series Thomas Alsop which will be released in June of 2014 from BOOM! Studios.  Fans of John Constantine and Dr. Strange will love this new take on the magic-wielding hero who battles demons on the streets . . . and in his own mind.  Thomas has money and fame, but also the burden of a being this generation’s occult warrior. Can he survive the battles both within and without?
