Hostess pies are a shadow of their former glory. They are so soft they fall apart before you even take them out of the packaging.
He's mt favourite Spidey author. I've got his big Omnibus collection :I remember picking up this issue of the Avengers. Roger Stern wrote some great stories. He had Spider-Man just right and his Avengers were a lot of fun.
I have that and it is awesome. My only criticism would be the couple of lead-up issues here and there that Stern didn't write aren't included, but otherwise that book is jammed with goodness. Even the letters pages are fun. Now we need a Roger Stern Avengers Omnibus.He's mt favourite Spidey author. I've got his big Omnibus collection :
(contains every issue of Amazing and Web he wrote, with a pretty extensive opening with him discussing the character)
Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Probably why all of Batman's villains were molded in the image of Dick Tracy villains.
Yeah...Bob Kane has "memories" of lots of things he had little or nothing to do with, like creating Robin and the Joker......and just generally writing or drawing almost any Batman after 1939...There's a fascinating interview with Bill Finger by the Batmania fanzine in 1967 (uploaded online here) where he goes into the inspirations for the creation of a lot of the iconic villains. What's amusing is that Finger was very much against recurring villains: he wanted Batman to kill all of them off.
I love the classic Iron Man suit.
Um, no. This was from our teachers Tex Blaisdell, Hy Eisman, and Bill Kurtzman, who all started as ghost artists on various comic strips like Prince Valiant, Little Orphan Annie, Popeye, Terry and the Pirates etc. I didn't ask them for citations of their life experiences, obviously. I mean, I heard about this when I was 17, didn't know it was even that unknown. So I can't back it up, didn't even know it would be a controversial statement.Documentation?
Well Hy Eismann is still alive, but he doesn't use social media. I'm pretty certain (or at least I got the impression at the time) that everyone in the industry knew this. It was common practice. I don't know of any comic strip from that time period that didnt have a staff of ghost artists working on it, including Eisner's the Spirit. Only exceptions I can think of are Little Nemo, Krazy Kat, Pogo, and I have no idea about Peanuts.Seriously. If you've got names or anything that would be amazing, because literally no one else in the universe knows about this.
