it’s CONCRETE BLONDE with BLOODLETTING!
Fallen Worlds By Yoshihiro Tatsumi.
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.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Tin Spirits
Tippy Teen By Harry Lucey From Tower Comics.
Aaaand…. welcome back!!!! We actually made it to Episode 4! Rook is MIA today, apparently he thought taking his family to Disney was more important than talking comics. Al finally rejoins the fold, as he and Don beat up Dallas and take over the show for a lengthy talk on Doom Patrol, the Savage Sword of Conan, DC 100 Page Spectaculars and more! They discuss their favorite artists and creators, including Bob Brown, Dick Dillon, the amazing Don Heck, Frank Robbins, Irv Novick, Jerry Grandenetti, Tony Tallarico, Mike Sekowsky, Ramona Fradon and Bruno Premiani!
