Jim Shooter, Comics Maverick, Part Two

Jim Shooter, Comics Maverick, Part One

Jim Shooter is one of the most fascinating and controversial figures in comics history. Loved by some, hated by others, and misunderstood by many, Shooter stands alone as one of the most complex figures ever to work in comics. Several years ago, in preparation for Jim Shooter: Conversations, Eric Hoffman, Dominick Grace and Jason Sacks had the chance to interview Shooter for several hours. We will share that interview over the next several weeks. In part one, Shooter discusses his childhood, his traumatizing experiences working for the legendary Mort Weisinger, and Shooter's rise to the editor-in-chief role at Marvel. Come back every Wednesday morning for the next several weeks to hear the next parts of our fascinating conversation. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/support

Jonny Harvey on "Ghost Empire: The Forgotten Story of Harvey Comics"

For many years Harvey Comics were perhaps the premier publisher of kids' comics in America, with characters like Casper the Friendly Ghost and Richie Rich providing wholesome entertainment for elementary school kids. But since Havey went under in the mid-1990s, this "little company that could" has largely passed out of the imaginations of readers and fans. I was joined by Jonny Harvey, director of an upcoming documentary series about Harvey Comics and a member of the Harvey family, to discuss the fascinating life and times of this very unique family business. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/support

Comics' Greatest Biographer, Bill Schelly, Part Three: Jeff Gelb

In part three of our three-part celebration of the great comics historian Bill Schelly, Bill's good friend Jeff Gelb. We talk about the "golden age of fanzines" in the 1960s, Bill's rediscovery of comics fandom in the 1990s, what made Bill a special historian and all that good stuff about history. What makes this episode special, though, is that it's a portrait of the deep bond between these two friends, a sweet and sad look at what made Bill a special person and why his loss is so deeply felt. This is one of my favorite episodes I've ever recorded of this show because it feels so true to the spirit of what Bill created: facts and emotions in good balance, providing great insight into the person being profiled. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/support

This was another wonderful episode of the show. You can hear Frank's deep love for his friend in everything Frank says, and I really enjoyed hearing more about Bill's methods, process and life well lived. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/support

In part one of our three-part celebration of the great comics historian Bill Schelly, Bill's close friends Gary Groth of Fantagraphics Books and John Lustig of Last Kiss join Jason to reminisce about Bill, sharing stories about Bill's interesting life and happy late career. We discuss Bill's outstanding writing, his strong motivations to do his work, his unique life and approach to the world, and how neither Gary nor John ever heard Bill use profanity. This is one of my favorite episodes I've ever done of this show. Gary, John and I agreed this was a wonderful chance to celebrate Bill's life, a kind of wake in which we had a chance to trade stories and share our sorrow. I sincerely hope you enjoy it as well. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/classiccomics/support
