Guest: Fred Van Lente
Fred Van Lente just published his second novel- The Con Artist. The scene of the action is ComiCon San Diego, one of the massive conventions that attracts comic book aficionados, addicts and authors.
Van Lente is best known as a New York Times best-selling comics writer. He creates the text for the hard-hitting, irreverent superhero series, Archer and Armstrong. He is also the author of non-fiction comics with weightier subjects like the series, Action Philosophers.
Fred Van Lente co-wrote the graphic novel, Cowboys and Aliens, which was made into a film staring Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig.
Van Lente's first book, Ten Dead Comedians, was a thinly veiled show business satire.
He joins us by phone from Brooklyn, new York.
