Media Release — Joe Casey has had a very diverse career that has evolved over the years, and despite his impressive superhero resume, he’s really dabbled in a bit of everything. He’s worked on indie and mainstream comics, in animation through Man of Action, and last year even wrote and directed a movie.
This month, he’s adding a new balls-to-the-walls comic series to his résumé, as he teams with Mike Huddleston on the new Image Comics ongoing Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker. We interview Casey about the book and profile his career thus far. Oh, and we’ve got an action-packed exclusive preview of Butcher’s first issue too.
That all? No siree!
