Eric Hobbs, writer of the acclaimed new release The Broadcast, is interviewed by Joanna Draper Carlson on Comics Worth Reading. And this just in: an interview up on Aint It Cool News! Eric is such a popular guy.
“The tension grows to a peak when a storm knocks out the power right in the middle of the radio broadcast. Paranoia and bedlam follow, but as Sartre said, “hell is other people,” not Martians.
