AIPT Comics Podcast Episode 268: Creator Spotlight: Ram V ‘Knowing everything is overrated’

Join the AIPT Comics podcast as we spotlight superstar writer Ram V!

In a new creator spotlight episode, writer Ram V joins us to dig into his latest work, talk comics, and be “known.” That’s right, and we’re doing the rapid-fire round of questions like “scariest animal” and “favorite animal!” Don’t miss this unique interview experience as we discuss his craft, working on Batman in Detective Comics, collaborating with writer Dan Watters, his new Dark Horse book Dawnrunner and its long gestation from idea to the comic shops, and more!

We have a growing library of creator spotlight episodes on the AIPT Comics podcast. Check out the episodes below to get to know these creators in a new way!

You can stream the AIPT Comics podcast below or find it on Apple PodcastsSpotifyAmazon Music, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Interview – Ram V talks about The One Hand, Detective Comics, Rare Flavours, Dawnrunner, and more!

  1. Ram V, we’re huge fans of yours at AIPT from The Vigil to Detective Comics, The One Hand, and your past works of course too, thank you for being on the AIPT comics podcast!
  2. You recently said on Matthew Rosenberg’s podcast you want to take time off from comics to write a novel, is there something percolating you’re itching to write and if so what genre might it be?
  3. To start, in Detective Comics Batman is currently on a hallucinatory trek in a story called An Elegy of Sand, what inspired you to take him on a trek like this? Have you gone on a trek like this yourself?
  4. The reality engine is so fascinating, how might you describe it to a reader curious about jumping on your run?
  5. I’ve read you’ve mapped out a 30-issue run ending Detective with issue #1089, are you still on target for that issue to be the finale?
  6. Dan Watters writes the backups in Detective, and he’s also your collaborator on The One Hand/The Six Fingers, do you collaborate as closely on the image comics series as much as the Detective Comics series?
  7. As an avid reader of comics, I simply love the idea of a crossover mystery that you’ve described as a mystery for the reader to solve. Surely this required a corkboard and red string all about to get just right?
  8. Then you have Creature from the Black Lagoon, also a Watters/Ram V jam, are you guys working on each of these projects similarly or does each one bring out a different work process?
  9. The oversimplification of Dawnrunner is giant mechs versus kaiju, how long has this project been percolating for you?
  10. The X-Men are relaunching this July, is there any character or X-book you’ve ever pondered taking on if you had carte blanch?
