Sean Michael Wilson – Axiom Interview

Here’s another interview with me being ‘oshaberi’ as normal (means ‘talking a lot’ in Japanese). This time for the excellent Japanese English language magazine AXIOM: http://www.axiommagazine.jp/2011/09/10/comic-book-writer-sean-michael-wilson/ (a scene from THE STORY OF LEE in which Lee’s relationship with Matt is discovered, in unpleasant circumstances. Her father’s narrow minded blasts up.) THE STORY OF LEE is […]

Sean Michael Wilson – new interview

Here’s a recent interview with me, from my hometown of Edinburgh, and mentioning THE STORY OF LEE volume 2 as set there: http://edinburghleagueofcomics.wordpress.com/2011/08/20/from-scotland-to-japan-an-interview-with-sean-michael-wilson/ I’m getting on writing volume 2 now, thinking about various aspects including the nature of the personality and cultural conflict between Matt and Lee, what and who to show from my Edinburgh.
