One More Interview with Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan
Sci-fi site io9 has now posted an interview with both Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan about (among other things) their plans for their Dark Horse Comics adaptation of "Queen of the Black Coast." In the interview, they humorously address the sad sack issue of how to depict Bêlit's nudity. (Seriously, just put some clothes on the woman--she doesn't need to be nude all the time for the adaptation to be good. Who cares if the same fanboys who had a snit about Dejah Thoris wearing clothes in the John Carter trailer are upset?) Cloonan also responds to the charge that her Conan is "Emo Conan."
