To begin with, can you talk a little about your background in the comic book industry and how you became involved with Immortals: Gods and Heroes?
F. J. DeSanto: My background technically by day is that I’m a movie/television producer. I produced the movie The Spirit with Frank Miller a couple of years ago. I have a couple of movies in development right now but mostly in the comic book genre. I’m producing a pilot for the Syfy channel right now but I also have a writing background and I write comics for DC Comics and Tokyo Pop. I create a lot of stuff for them and I’m writing an original one hundred-page book for Archaia this year, which is an original idea. I’ve formed a good relationship with them and I’ve been invited to be a part of the wonderful Immortals: Gods and Heroes experience.
