Charles Soule NYCC

If you’ve been following Marvel Comics for the past few years, you’ve probably heard of writer Charles Soule. He, along with artists like Ryan Stegman and Steve McNiven, revitalized the Inhumans franchise to become one of Marvel’s top properties. His work as a lawyer inspired runs on SHE-HULK and DAREDEVIL, both of which received critical acclaim. On top of that, LANDO and STAR WARS: POE DAMERON put the spotlight on some fan-favorite Star Wars characters. However Soule’s work isn’t solely at Marvel. In addition, he has an upcoming creative-owned series, CURSE WORDS, at Image Comics with collaborator Ryan Browne. Knowing how busy his schedule is, I was a bit surprised to get the opportunity to interview Soule, but it gave me an opportunity to speak to a writer I respect and admire.

While I first came across Soule’s work when he was at DC with SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, he became one of my favorite writers with the bright, intelligent SHE-HULK series featuring artist Javier Pulido. The book followed She-Hulk in her role as a defense attorney and how it affected her role as a superhero. This is paralleled in Soule’s current run of DAREDEVIL, where Matt Murdock works as both a prosecutor and a vigilante. Soule’s experience as a lawyer holds a huge influence on his work, and I wanted to find out how he approaches using that experience in his writing.
