LBCC '09: Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex, Powergirl And More)

G-Man talks to Jimmy about Jonah Hex, Power Girl, Wednesday Comics, an update on Vampire Hunter D and more

Jimmy Palmiotti is a fun guy to talk to.  It's impressive if you look at all the books he's worked on.  He also is currently working on a lot of projects.  I got to talk to him about Jonah Hex (comic and movie), Powergirl, Terra,  Wednesday Comics, an update on Vampire Hunter D and more.

He may be a talented writer but than God no Vampire Hunter D. I don't want to see an American version. It would be just as bad as the anime Wolverine or Iron Man...

The Sci Fi series wasnt too much like the comic. In the comic she works with a cop (Maureen) to take down guys that the cops can't or won't go near. It's got a Punisher flavor to it mixed with Wolverine's healing factor.

Can someone tell me what the "update" on Vampire Hunter D is? (I don't have sound, my comp is stuck in safe mode.)

It's not happening.  They just wanted Jimmy and Josh Blaylock to tell the same old story again.

I've recently started to catch-up with the Jonah Hex trades (recently finished the third one) and so far I'm loving what he along with Justin Gray and the roster of artists are doing.
Have yet to try Power Girl though, I've heard only possitive things though so maybe I should start to

I'd like to have my Jonah Hex #1 signed by Justin and Jimmy.  Both geniuses.

I loved the Supergirl in wednesday comics strip. However I still think Supergirl:Cosmic Adventures is the best all ages Supergirl story ever and one of the best Supergirl stories period.
