78 | Reworking Old Comic Stories

Don and Al sneak in an episode and continue their Atlas comics talk. This leads to a discussion about fashion and reworking old stories in comics.
Don ruminates on the short-lived King Comics, and the beautiful painted covers of Dell and Gold Key comics. After divulging the Kirby Curse, the boys talk about workaholic artists, the guys that never stuck out, but deserve appreciation, like Dan Spiegel and Ross Andru.
Other topics include: The greatness of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Bruno Premiani, the Best Kirby Inkers, Michael Moorcock’s Elric, Comic Shop News, and Don’s gut-wrenching reaction to 1984 by George Orwell.
