The last interview I conducted at San Diego Comic-Con 2010 (though there’s still more I’ve yet to post) was with my buddy Thomas Jane. Moviegoers know him for his memorable roles in films like BOOGIE NIGHTS, DEEP BLUE SEA, 61*, THE PUNISHER, STANDER, and Frank Darabont’s adaptation of Stephen King’s THE MIST. Tom even directed and starred in his own movie DARK COUNTRY. His HBO series HUNG is getting ready for a third season, and Tom is staying plenty busy in his own time, publishing new comic books, and even putting together films through his production company RAW Entertainment. A hardcore comic enthusiast, Jane has parlayed his love for the medium by bringing top talent in the industry into his projects. His business partner Tim Bradstreet (happy to say also a good buddy) rounds out a list of amazing contributing artists, including Bernie Wrightson, Michael Kaluta, Mark Schultz, James Daly, Basil Gogos, William Stout, and Don Marquez… to name but a few. Contributing writers include Todd Farmer, Steve Niles, and very soon the great Bruce Jones. If you’ve never picked up a RAW comic book, you’re missing out on some of the best work the industry has offered in the past decade. Just before the con ended I had a chance to sit down with Tom and catch up on a few things. Check out the video below, and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments.
