The two discuss the inspiration behind the book, the importance of place and why Etienne was determined to put Scotland on the page, and hopefully on the screen, the influences from his own life that came together to create the characters and stories told.
Etienne also talks about being inspired by the work of Stan Lee and Mark Millar, the musical side to the project, the importance of collaboration in all his work, his experience of Scottish culture, his hopes and dreams for what is to come, and a whole lot more.
It’s a fascinating chat with a man who creates his art without boundaries, across different genres and forms.
