Skottie Young has a vibrant art style that you easily recognize the second you see it. His distinctive style has earned him an exclusive contract with Marvel that has seen the artist earn an impressive total of 4-Eisner Awards. In an earlier interview, Skottie and I focused on his transition to writing, specifically his writing debut on Magneto: Not A Hero. In the second part of the interview, we have a more general discussion about the comic book movie genre and where it's headed. Take a listen as Scottie and I pick up where we left off discussing the DC reboot and then talk all things CBMs..
