CCL Podcast #165 – Todd DePastino, Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front

Collected Comics Library Podcast #165

62,253Kb; 66m 08s

Today for the podcast I have a really fun and very informative interview with Todd DePastino author of Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front and editor for Willie and Joe: The World War II Years (Fantagraphics). For decades Mauldin had been the voice of the Greatest Generation through his cartoons particularly with his most famous characters Willie and Joe. Todd and I go in-depth with both the biography and the upcoming cartoon collected edition.

Also in the show I cover a bit of news that I blogged about this past week including Shazam!, American Flagg and Carl Barks and Donald Duck. All this and new sponsor to the podcast, the Library Binding Company, the best place to get all those loose monthly comics bound into a nice hardcover.
