This isn’t fake news! The great Joltin’ Joe Sinnott is profiled in The New York Times. Click the picture to enlarge it, then look at the brown frame near the upper left corner. It’s a birthday card to Joe drawn by Stan Lee! Here’s a picture I took of it, and you can click this one too to see it full size.
Today’s sad news is that Adam West has died. Haven’t heard yet if he had been ill or if this was sudden and unexpected.
James Warren ran a rather unique publishing company. He didn’t pay top dollar for top talent, and instead offered creative freedom that attracted some of the best artists working at the time to draw stories in Creepy, Eerie, Blazing Combat and, later, Vampirella. The contributors included Frank Frazetta, who was painting covers for Warren during the period he was also creating his famous Conan the Barbarian covers for Lancer.
Somebody must think that the Warren catalog is in the public domain, because there’s a scanned archive of many Warren magazines available at this link on Archive.org.
Issue #7 includes this concise Frazetta biography. I replaced the fan art on the page with the cover of Creepy #4.
There sure are a lot of Marvel Comics actors in this “get out the vote” video. They don’t mention Donald Trump by name, but by inference. The video features Tony Stark, and Natasha Romanova (or, if you prefer, Romanoff), and Bruce Banner, and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson, but where’s Steve Rogers, aka Captain America? Wouldn’t he be the most effective spokesman against bullying and Demagoguery?
