Comic News Insider Episode 906 – A Stan Lee Tribute!

Comic News Insider: Episode 906 is now available for free download! Click on the link or get it through iTunes! Sponsored by Dynamic Forces.

We lost the legend Stan Lee 2 weeks ago. The comic book world mourned along with everyone else. The outpouring of love and support for Stan came in droves and still continues. Like many, we had a short experience with him. Back in 2006, Producer Joe and Jimmy interviewed him via phone and delved deep into his early years. An amazing conversation to be sure. And in 2012, Jimmy got to meet Stan in person and do a quick 2 minute walk and talk interview with him. While but a moment, it was an honor and privilege to be in the presence of such a genuinely kind, loving, and funny force of nature!  Jimmy gives his thoughts on those interviews and Stan himself. As does Producer Joe. Plus, we thought we’d play those interviews again so you wouldn’t have to dig them up. We hope you enjoy this fond memory that we have of him as much as we did revisiting it. Thank you, Stan. For being such an important part of the comic book world and a pop culture icon. For being Marvel’s (and comic books in general) biggest cheerleader. For always finding a way to make us laugh. And for just being you. As always…EXCELSIOR! We’ll be looking for your next awesome cameo in our dreams!

Deconstructing Comics #612: RIP Stan Lee

Stan Lee

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics writer, art director, publisher, promoter, and icon, died November 12 at age 95. While he is loved by many, and undoubtedly had a hand in some of the greatest stories of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and more, he was also known to aggravate disputes over story credit and art ownership with the likes of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. In this episode, Tim, Kumar, and Tom Spurgeon wrestle with the legacy of Stan the Man.

Comics Alternative, On Location: The First September Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

Legacies

It’s time for another on-location episode recorded at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC. In this first of two planned September visits, Michael and Derek talk with customers — Zyg, Brian, and Alonzo — and discuss some recent releases that strike their attention. Focusing on the mainstream, Michael highlights Fantastic Four #1. He discusses Marvel’s former flagship title’s return, and he goes on to speculate on the significance of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s creation…not only with the Marvel Universe, but for all comics. Derek focuses on a few non-superhero titles, including Christopher Sebela and Shawn McManus’s House Amok #1 (IDW/Black Crown), Eric M. Esquivel and Ramon Villalobos’s Border Town #1 (DC/Vertigo), and the first two titles in DC’s new Sandman initiative, The Sandman Universe #1 and The Dreaming #1.

Thoughts of a Master

On this interview episode Derek talks with Fantagraphics publisher Gary Groth about his new book Sparring with Gil Kane: Debating the History and Aesthetics of Comics. It’s a collection of thirteen interviews, conversations, and panel transcripts focusing on Kane and his aesthetics. The pieces that Groth collects highlight the legendary artist’s thoughts on the potential and limitations of the medium, his relationship with other creators, and Kane’s place within the larger context of comics history. As Groth reveals, this book was long in the making, and it’s the first of several Gil Kane-related works that Fantagraphics will publish in the coming years.

Deconstructing Comics #567: Paul Gravett

Koom with Paul Gravett

At London Super Comicon last month, Koom got to sit down with Paul Gravett, a comics journalist and exhibition curator. Gravett is currently preparing the touring Asian comics show Mangasia, which will debut in Rome next month. This is a guy who’s read a lot of comics; do they all become a blur after a while? Koom asks him about avoiding burnout, the amount of progress comics have (or haven’t) made toward being accepted by the “art world”, and much more.
