“Wonderful, warm blanket of camp”
On this interview episode Derek talks with the Eisner Award-nominated editor-in-chief of
Back Issue magazine Michael Eury. His new book comes out from TwoMorrows Publishing next week, and the two discuss this project’s genesis and the significance of the camp cultural phenomenon. This text stands out because Eury doesn’t limit himself to just comics, but instead he looks at camp from a wider vista, revealing its convergence among television, film, toys, cartoons, music, and everyday consumable products. In Hero-a-Go-Go: Campy Comic Books, Crimefighters and Culture of the Swinging Sixties Hero-a-Go-Go, readers will find in-depth discussions of such subjects as Metamorpho, The Inferior Five, Jerry Lewis comics, Monkeemania, , Not Brand Echh Hanna-Barbera cartoons, , Herbie the Fat Fury Captain Action, the TV , Green Hornet M.F. Enterprise’s Captain Marvel, The Cowsills, JFK and LBJ in comics, the ill-fated Harvey Thrillers, and, of course, the television series. As Michael reveals over the course of this interview, Batman Hero-a-Go-Go is intended for diverse audiences, written as both an informed introduction and a chronicle for remembrance.
