When we reviewed the first issue of Dynamite Comis' take on PETER CANNON: THUNDERBOLT, we were taken aback by what we read. Was this a WATCHMEN derivative? Did Kieron Gillen think people wouldn't catch on? By the end of that issue, it became clear that things were muddier than we thought (if that makes sense), and the second issue had us hooked. This was something different, something that was far more metacomic than it was supehero adventure.

When the fifth and final issue came out, we were certain that the whole thing was a reaction to what WATCHMEN had brought us, and how it had changed the industry.

But...what if we were wrong? What if there was even more to it than that?

There's only one source who could answer those questions, so we set up a livestream connection all the way to England to speak with the writer of PETER CANNON (and also DIE and THE WICKED + THE DIVINE) to have a wee chat about what's really going on behind those covers.

Enjoy!
