New York Times bestselling author of comics and video games Antony Johnston (Wasteland, Dead Space, The Fuse, Daredevil) joins us today to talk about his latest graphic novel The Coldest Winter. This is the prequel graphic novel to the upcoming film, The Coldest City starring Charlize Theron (Lorraine Broughton) and James McAvoy (Percival) about MI6 agents in The Cold War.
The Coldest Winter is for fans of the action spy genre and a good murder mystery. Antony bravely sends agents behind the Iron Curtain with no certainty of returning and the loyalty of his characters and the mission is always at the forefront.
When you are a spy, you must always watch your back!

FOG!: Thanks for joining us to talk The Coldest Winter, Antony! Is it cold where you are right now?
Antony Johnston: I live in north-west England. It’s always cold here.
This is the volume that precedes The Coldest City (soon to be a major motion picture). Were the volumes meant to be released in this order?
That’s a bit of an odd question. If I’d wanted to tell the story of The Coldest Winter first, I would have written it first instead of The Coldest City. So yes, that was always the intention.
