The road to the Eisners… and beyond.

Though nominated, Unknown Soldier did not win for Best New Series in 2009.

That honor went to Invincible Iron Man.

Congratulations to¬†writer Matt Fraction, artist Salvador Larroca, colorist Frankie D’Armata, letterer Chris Eliopoulos, editor Warren Simons and assistant editor Alejandro Arbona.

However… the Examiner.com did something really cool. They interviewed me before the Eisner competition and then caught up with me afterwards, and published both things as separate articles.

You can find what I had to say the day of the award ceremony here.

And then my response the next day, after loosing, here.

You can find the NPR radio interview here.

Here’s an embed of it…

And here’s some video they shot of me explaining the process behind Unknown Soldier. Check out that freeze frame… drunk much.

Market Place on NPR Interviews Joshua Dysart

Posted on by Joshua Dysart Posted in Home, Press & Appearances | 4 Comments

Yes, Market Place is actually an American Public Media show, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s all NPR.

So this Sunday a radio engineer came by my pad and we talked about process and the impact on culture that comics have had for a segment centered around the San Diego Comic Con. He even shot some quick video for possible web support. It was a lot of fun. It hits this Saturday, you can check for air times in your area here.

I’m sure you can download a podcast of it once it’s aired, if you so desire. I sure hope so, because I’ll be at the con and I’d hate to miss my NPR debut.
