CBR: Steve Bissette, Part 2: Of Hypernauts and Tyrants
In the second of our two part interview, Steve Bissette discussed "Tales of the Uncanny - N-Man & Friends: A Naut Comics History Vol. 1," spilled a little about the future of "Tyrant" and more.
Full article here.
Yow, what a great interview. The first half left me excited about the upcoming Naut Comics work (great to hear he's pressing on with 1963's fictional-publisher high concept), and the last half was the kind of discussion about copyright and creators' rights that really fascinates the hell out of me. Complicated stuff and I'm frankly a little dizzy after reading it, but it's a damned important subject and I'm glad guys like Steve are out there fighting the good fight.
I've been looking forward to this project since I first heard about it, but now I'm more excited than ever, both from the conceptual level and knowing that everyone on the creative team will get their due.
If it were straight-up superhero stories about Hypernaut and the crew, I'd have been all-in on this project, but coupling that with the creation of not only a fictional comic universe, but the company and creators behind that universe makes this sound like a lot of fun.
I am trying to find out if my Diamond-enslaved local comic shops can get this in. I'd prefer to support a local store when I buy this comic, but if I have to, I will get it online.

This will indeed be available through Diamond. However, it cannot be ordered there or anywhere yet; it hasn't even been solicited yet. Tales of the Uncanny: N-Man and Friends volume 1 will hit toward the end of the year.
Thanks for supporting the local comic shop - they do much to make things like this possible!
That is excellent news! Thanks for the response. I will keep my eyes on Previews and make sure they know to stock this one.
