Exploring Evil with Chris Condon and That Texas Blood
We chat with the writer about his Texas noir tale and how it's digging into the best and worst of humanity.
Welcome to our Creator Corner, our new reoccurring interview series, where we chat with the coolest and most thought-provoking creators in the comics industry. In this entry, we're conversing with author Chris Condon about That Texas Blood. Listen to the unedited audio HERE.
There is no better feeling than sharing a comic you love with someone you love. Well, sometimes that's actually a pretty anxious feeling, but when they jive with it the way you jive with it, ah, that's just the best. This is exactly what happened between the two of us when Brad put That Texas Blood into Lisa's hands. We fell hard for Ambrose County and Sheriff Joe Bob Coates, but for different reasons. And the conversations that followed after each issue were a dang delight.
Not as much as a delight as it was to chat with That Texas Blood co-creator Chris Condon. We pinned him to our virtual room and tossed him a bunch of questions. He graciously and thoughtfully tackled them all and seemed even interested in coming back to chat so we could toss him a whole heap more when the current That Texas Blood storyline wraps up.
Issue #14 appears to be a significant turning point in the That Texas Blood storyline. Chris Condon and his collaborator Jacob Phillips are venturing into darker shadows. The human evil their exploring might graduate to an Evil with a capital E. What the heck is bubbling beneath Ambrose County? Why do such horrible things keep occurring decade after decade? We get into it with Chris.
If you've never read an issue of That Texas Blood, that's okay. You can jump right in with #14. Condon and Phillips will take care of you. That being said, if you've been reading since the beginning, That Texas Blood #14 will create a gnarly, deeper impact within you.
The relationship dynamics in this series are complicated and compelling. We hope to explore them much further in the future. So, this is your warning, it's time to get hooked on That Texas Blood.
