NYCC 2012: Artist Eduardo Risso Says Doing ‘Before Watchmen’ Was a No-Brainer (Video)

100 Bullets artist Eduardo Risso talks with MTV Geek Steven Smith at New York Comic-Con about working on Before Watchmen: Moloch.

Risso talks with our own Steven Smith about working on Moloch with writer J. Michael Straczynski and some of the cultural and corporate impetus for Before Watchmen. The artist behind creator-owned works like Spaceman and 100 Bullets with Brian Azzarello says that he didn’t have any trepidation about working on the characters created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, or exploring his backstory.

To that last point, he also discusses how important the one and only villain miniseries among the Before Watchmen titles is to providing connective tissue for the prequels.
