Description

In the first part of his conversation with CBR TV from Comic-Con International, BOOM! Studios CEO Ross Richie explains how he was able to step away from the day-to-day operations of BOOM!'s publishing side to work on film and TV development, and how he's always gone wherever he's needed in order to best serve the needs of the company and its future growth. He discusses "Strange Fruit," and how both the book and creators Mark Waid & J.G. Jones have received criticism for their depiction of racism, and how oddly timed the ending of issue #1 ended up being in light of the renewed uproar regarding the Confederate flag.
