Geek Syndicate interview Jean Van Hamme

I met up with Jean Van Hamme and was immeadiately impressed by the vitality of this 71 year old writer.  He exudes an air of experience and professional wisdom that makes you want to sit down and listen to what he has to say.  He has been in the buisness for a while and has written novels, film scripts, and sold over 38 million copies of his various comics including titles such s Largo Winch, Thorgal, XIII, Lady S, and many more.

The interview starts with me asking him why he decided to get into writing and moves on to cover his views on working in other mediums, seeing his creations on the screen and the difference between American and European comics. He gives advise to new writers and also reveals why he has commisioned 10 writers to create a spin-off series from Largo Winch.
