Just finished printing an all new Video Tonfa for the Teenage Dinosaur Tim Goodyear!
here’s part 1 of that Urasawa documentary I was typing about. I can’t find the subtitled version anymore. I’d love to see a comics site get all the most important documentaries about comics in one place on this internet.
Another one that was really important to me was the 1987 The masters of comic book art, that’s up here. Hosted by Harlen Ellison, with his Kirby Tshirt. and with great interviews from Moebius, Kirby, Kurtzman, Miller, Sim, and more.
I haven’t seen that Frank Quitely one yet. Crumb was interesting to me as a teenager —just to see how a successful cartoonist lived. Maybe not as a guide post but just as a point of interest.
Jim Starlin speaks to us in a secret language.
CAPTAIN MARVEL #28
1973, Marvel Comics
Mike Friedrich and Jim Starlin script. Jim Starlin and Dan Green (with some John Romita assists) art.
When I talk about what’s missing from the Marvel movies, this is what I’m talking about. No style, no weirdness, and that’s true even of the ones I enjoy (some of which I enjoy a lot).
I’m reading the Warlock collection now. I love those comics, Jim Starlin forever!
