My "Spotlight On Howard Cruse" Panel at San Diego on YouTube
Spotlight On Howard Cruse panel that I moderated at this year's San Diego Comicon is up on YouTube (four parts, runs about 50 mins). I had the pleasure of learning a great deal about Howard's work on Barefootz (in the 1970s), Wendel, Gay Comix (in the 1980s) and his seminal graphic novel, Stuck Rubber Baby (in the 1990s) back in 2001/02 when I interviewed his husband Eddie Sebarbaum for my first book, I Have To Live With This Guy!. Truth be told, I have one or two more books in me on Golden/Silver Age comic-book artists, but then my next dream books would be on Dave Sim and chronicling the rise of the independent/alternative comics from the late 1970s that morphed into the graphic novel industry that we know today. If only March did have 32 days!
