Portrait of Editor sprung from two conversations. The first, was about gather am oral history about the great comic book editors who have passed away. I realized someone should record a history about them. The second, was to show the world all the behind the scenes an editor puts into creating a comic book or comic book series. Editors bring a unique creativity to the process.

If you donate a $1 or a $1,000 you'll get a mention on the podcast if you you want it. Also, editors like to talk so I'm always cutting down the interviews. Patrons will get access to outtakes.

The podcast PORTRAIT OF AN EDITOR hosted by Francis Lombard digs into comic book editors’ origin stories, how their mentors shaped them, their tricks of the trade, and the unique creativity editors bring to their jobs. It showcases various comic book editors from around the world. Not only do the interviews cover their day to day, but how do editors survive in today’s economy, plan for retirement, when is it a good time to break the rules, and finally we talk about the great editors of the past.

The reasons for a Patreon page? 1) To get and maintain various sound/recording equipment. I would like to be as mobile as possible. Editors are a busy bunch and if I can interview them at conventions it will give me a chance to increase the numbers of interviews. I really want to make this a weekly podcast. 2) To pay for trips to comic book conventions. I attend New York Comic Con annually and San Diego semi-regularly. Both I manage to do on the cheap, but getting to other shows around the country will add to the podcast's prominence. Your patronage will defray those cost.  Thanks so much.
