Duane Swierczynski Talks With Michael Moreci About Ex-Con
Michael Moreci, writer of Army of Darkness: Convention Invasion, talks with Duane Swierczynski about Ex-Con #2, both on sale now!
Duane Swierczynski: Ex-Con started as a basic idea (a parolee leaves jail owing a brutal crime boss a favor) that Dynamite asked me to develop into a mini-series. So it was always meant to be a comic. But Ex-Con‘s influences were very much from the novel and movie portions of my brain — hardboiled Gold Medal paperbacks, 1980s crime flicks set in L.A., Jim Thompson’s grifter tales, late night Cinemax thrillers, David Goodis’s sordid love triangles. It easily could have been a pulp novel except for one thing: Cody Pomeray’s weird “gift,” which would have been tricky to do in prose. Plus, you really want to see 1980s L.A. in all of its garish glory. Artist Keith Burns rendered all of it beautifully. He was the best creative partner I could have asked for.
