Episode #9 “An Interview With John Stanisci”

This week we had the pleasure to chat with John Stanisci.

John Stanisci

John Stanisci

I’ve know John for over a decade now, and he never ceases to amaze me.

John has been a professional illustrator for over 18 years working for all the major comic book publishers including Marvel Comics, DC Comics, IDW Publishing and many more, drawing characters such as Spider Man, Batman, Catwoman, Superman, The Hulk and others.

In 2011, John’s book for DC Comics, Batman Beyond: Hush Beyond, premiered at #1 on The New York Times bestseller list for graphic novels.

John is currently working on his own comic book called “Lifedeath” and he was kind enough to share 2 pages with us, so you all get a sneak-peek to his incredible work!

In addition to being an artist, John is also an accomplished actor who has appeared in Film, TV and on Broadway. In 2005, he co founded his own theater company, Invictus Theater, which was chiefly responsible for bringing the play ‘Irena’s Vow’ to Broadway in 2009. John co produced the play (along with Daryl Roth and Jimmy Nedelander) and co starred in the role of Rokita. Irena’s Vow starred four time Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh.

John is also an accomplished writer and he’s putting the final touches on his new play “JEREMIAH 5:1”. I saw the very powerful staged reading he did in December directed by Michael Parva and featuring Kathleen Turner, Sarita Choudhury, David Morse, Stelio Savante and Thomas Ryan. It’s an incredible story and I’m very much looking forward to see what’s next for this piece!
