Smith has a lot to say about survival, storytelling, and comics in this epic TWIM interview!
This edition of This Week in Marvel is a really special one as Ryan and Jamie welcome filmmaker and comic writer Kevin Smith! Smith stopped by to promote his Showtime standup special “Kevin Smith: Silent But Deadly” (which premiered May 11 and is currently available on Showtime) and to talk about the massive heart attack he had right after filming the show. Despite the heavy subject matter, the conversation was fascinating, funny, and — befitting of Smith — full of amazing stories, including Smith’s work as a writer on DAREDEVIL and more.
Ryan also talks about his recent visit to Los Angeles to support Little Free Library, a wonderful cause that builds libraries in the communities that need them the most. Plus: Ryan and Jamie have their picks of the week and an enlightening segment on hair talk (facial hair, head hair, you name it).

Beginning this September!
Visionary creators such as Joe Quesada, Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev, Garth Ennis, Christopher Priest, Steve Dillon, David W. Mack, Grant Morrison, Jimmy Palmiotti, Jae Lee, Kevin Smith, Jeph Loeb, and more created the stories that would change the comics industry! And together, with co-founders and editors Quesada and Palmiotti at the helm, they would become superstar legends for their revolutionary work!
With Marvel Knights, Marvel traded traditional style for daring storytelling, creating new and bold tales for Marvel icons such as Punisher, Daredevil, the Inhumans, Black Widow, and Black Panther. By reinventing classic characters and focusing on strong stand-alone story arcs, Marvel Knights nearly recreated the Original Graphic Novel as monthly comic format—and became the industry’s spark that paved the way for the bright and intrepid stories of today’s heroes!
This fall, in honor of the critically acclaimed imprint’s 20th anniversary, Marvel is celebrating the inception of Marvel Knights by bringing fans a uniform set of new trade paperbacks featuring the best of Marvel Knights, as well as two brand new Omnibus editions.
