42 Webs Interview with Paul S. Kemp

42 Webs posted an interview yesterday with author Paul S. Kemp. The interview covers Forgotten Realms, Star Wars, Paul’s latest novel The Hammer and the Blade, and even comics.

What is your most memorable comic trade/graphic novel? Why?

Man, I haven’t read comics in such a long time.  One that sticks with me is a series of issues in Amazing Spider Man when Kraven the Hunter captures Spiderman, drugs him, buries him alive, and assumes his identity for a while.  In the end, Kraven kills himself.  He just wanted to feel what it would be like to be his most elusive prey for a while.  I think it’s stuck with me so long because it’s one of the earliest comics I remember reading that dealt so frankly with adult themes (Kraven in existential crisis and killing himself).  Similarly, the whole sequence in Daredevil (who remains my favourite hero to this day) with Typhoid Mary and Kingpin. Very adult stuff and wonderfully told.   This question reminds me that I need to get back into comics.  I miss them.
