The second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been so much improved over the first season that we barely even noticed that a fairly important player from that initial series has been missing and largely unmentioned in the first 15 episodes of year two.

Jeremy Barlow has written Star Wars comics, Mass Effect comics, Deathlok, and more, but this time he’s taking us out west with R.I.P.D.: City of the Damned, a prequel to the R.I.P.D. movie that will star Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds when it debuts this summer.

I spoke to Barlow about picking up where Peter Lenkov left off with R.I.P.D., what he thinks about the future of Star Wars, the possibility of more Deathlok, going freelance, and what it takes to write a comic book.  (more…)
