My guest this week is the fantastic John Reppion.
John was born in Liverpool, England in 1978. His writing career began in 2003 when he collaborated with his wife Leah Moore on a proposal for a six issue mini series entitled Wild Girl. The proposal was accepted and the series was published by Wildstorm in 2004/05. Since then the duo have written many classic characters including Doctor Who (in The Whispering Gallery with artist Ben Templesmith), Sherlock Holmes (in two original mysteries for Dynamite Entertainment), and Dracula (their adaptation of which is now on several university reading lists). They currently write the series Black Shuck and Storm Warning for 2000 AD.
We talk about comics, writing, weird history and more – and, of course, John shares his Apocalypse Books selections.
