s08e INCIDENTAL EPISODE - 'THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH' SPECIAL, In Conversation with writer JAMES TYNION IV and letterer ADITYA BIDIKAR
We're in not only a... strange and challenging time for the whole comics industry - an understatement to say the least! - but also coincidentally a period of incredible creativity and imagination in creator-owned titles. From speculative techno-thrillers to spine-chilling horrors, from rich soap opera to dark cowboy noir, there hasn't been a more exciting time for new readers to get into the medium.
A book that I have had the pleasure to get an advance look at happens to be one of the most thrilling comics I've read in years: THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH, a conspiracy story spanning decades and yet capturing a contemporary zeitgeist as powerful as you can only imagine and published by Image Comics. On the eve of the release of the first issue on Wednesday, we are incredibly lucky to have the entire creative team - writer James Tynion IV, artist Martin Simmonds and letterer Aditya Bidikar - join us to talk about the conception of this incredible story, how recent events have been captured in its pages and what the team have planned for the future of The Department Of Truth...
