John Romita Jr. Interview KICK-ASS.jpg

Over the past few days I’ve been posting my video interviews with the Kick-Ass cast (Aaron Johnson and Clark Duke/Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and screenwriter Jane Goldman.  Today I’ve got John Romita Jr.

As the artist of the comic book series and one of the producers of the movie, Romita Jr. was very involved in bringing Kick-Ass to life.  He also directed a short animated sequence in the film.  During the interview he talked about what he did on the comic book and movie, what he thinks of the iPad and how that might help the comic book industry, his thoughts on WonderCon and Comic-Con, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to check it out.

Also, as I have said many times, Kick-Ass is an awesome movie.  Go see it!
