On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.
This episode’s guest is comic book writer Lan Pitts (a suggestion by previous guest Liana Kangas). As a lifelong wrestling fan, Pitts got the opportunity to write for BOOM! Studios and their WWE comic book series. During our interview, we talked about being a wrestling fan and all the wrestling we have liked from the past and present, his stories a part of the BOOM! Studios WWE comic books, writing wrestling comics for the casual comic book fan, the freedom in writing wrestler’s stories in the comic book universe, the visual aspects of the comic books, and how wrestling parallels the comic book world.
Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. Pitts chose a couple of comic book writers, Ron Marz (Batman/Aliens, DC vs. Marvel, Green Lantern, Silver Surfer, and Witchblade) and Tom King (The Vision for Marvel Comics, and The Sheriff of Babylon for the DC Comics imprint Vertigo, 2012 superhero novel A Once Crowded Sky, and the “Rebirth”-era Batman).
Lan Pitts also created a special Spotify playlist for Fresh is the Word:
