Monster Scifi Show Podcast – The Surrogates with Robert Venditti

surrogates movie posterI really had a great time interviewing writer Robert Venditti of The Surrogates graphic novel the second time around. Aside from the improved audio quality from the first time, there was something which I discovered after the interview and made me very excited. A very popular kids/teens book is called Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is being made in a movie by Christopher Columbus for 2010. Robert is connected to Percy Jackson in which he is adapting this story into a graphic novel. Of course, I will keep you posted on any future details but I will re-re-re-interview Robert closer to the release of this new graphic novel.
