Hobo Radio Interview – Remembering Dennis O’Neil

Subscribe:

Comic book legend Dennis O’Neil passed away at the age of 81. O’Neil was a writer for both Marvel and DC Comics from the 1960s through the 1990s. He created Ra’s and Talia al Ghul and, as DC’s Batman editor, oversaw the Knightfall storyline that introduced the world to Bane.

In 2012, Joel Murphy interviewed O’Neil for an article about Bane to introduce causal fans to the character before the release of Christopher Nolan’s film The Dark Knight Rises. Most of the interview, unfortunately, ended up on the cutting room floor and has never been heard before. But today, to honor the man and his amazing legacy, Murphy is releasing the full, unedited 40-minute interview for the first time.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Glass Android” by Lee Rosevere

Hobo Radio 268 – Comic book legend Dennis O’Neil

Dennis O’Neil is a legendary figure in the comic book career. He was a writer and editor who worked for both Marvel and DC comics over the course of his impressive 30 year career. As the editor of DC Comics Batman titles in the 90s, O’Neil was the driving force behind the memorable Knightfall storyline, which saw the new villain Bane “breaking” the Batman, leaving him paralyzed and unable to continue fighting crime. This story became one of the key inspirations for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.

In anticipation of the release of that film last July, Joel Murphy interviewed O’Neil for a story he was doing about the creation of Bane. They ended up talking in-depth about O’Neil’s career, though sadly most of the content of the interview never made it into the finished article. So, with the Internet abuzz with talk of Ben Affleck being cast as the new Batman, Joel thought it was a good time to release this interview in its entirety for the first time ever. If you are a fan of comics, you will definitely want to listen to this.
