Whew! Brian Michael Bendis has had a rollercoaster ride for the last 3 months... 

First he's leaving Marvel after 18 internet breaking years wrapping things up on his creations like Miles Morales (Spider-Man)  Riri Williams (Ironheart) and Jessica Jones .

Then he joined  DC to start a game changing run on Superman, creating a new DC imprint, and moving his Jinxworld titles (Scarlett, Taki-O, Powers) to the new company.

Then he faced a very serious health issue being infected with a septic MRSA infection nearly blinding and killing him (no hyperbole).

Thankfully he's getting better every day, and has joined Word Balloon Host John Siuntres in this marathon conversation. 

We'll get lots of details about how he sees Superman, Clark Kent, Lois and his whole supporting cast. You'll hear details about Action 1000 featuring his first Superman story, drawn by the legendary Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, The DC Nation special issue with stories by Bendis Scott Snyder and Tom King, his 6 weekly issues of Man Of Steel and writing Action and Superman . 

You'll also hear about Brian's health scare that nearly cost him his life, the courage and strength of his wife Alissa, and  great tales of support from Brian's best friends in comics, the fans, and many creators editors and publishers in the entire comics community.
