In 1982, popular French cartoonist, Moebius(he’s second from the right) visited Kyoto Japan. He meet with the famous mangaka, Osamu Tezuka. This is a picture of them having a good time.
Me interviewing Jen Vaughn, Emily Carroll and Brandon Graham at the Vancouver Art Gallery a couple of months ago as part of the comics related programming for the Co-Mix Art Spiegelman retrospective.
I got carried away doodling this afternoon and drew this Magmar from memory (thus the inaccuracies).
Carmine Infantino passed away? Not an un-controversial figure, because of his years in editorial, because of his relationship with Kirby, because of whatever else (e.g., the bit with the Filipino artists), one of the people who sued though his lawsuit didn’t go anywhere, but still, despite it all, one of the defining artists of that era, at least for DC. His stuff has held up well, stood out well even from an era that certainly didn’t seem to want for good comic art. He could draw; the rest … boy, there just seems like there’s a mess of history there that I don’t know enough to even fully appreciate.
Mark Evanier, whose relationship with Infantino seemed like it had moments: ”Infantino and I had a couple of unpleasant encounters over the years, as did some others who worked with him while he was running DC. I don’t feel it’s appropriate to go into them at length at this time. Maybe later, maybe not. I’ll just say I admired his artwork and much of what he tried to do in an editorial capacity at DC, especially his first few years in that capacity. I thought that as Editorial Director and Publisher though, he was installed in a job at which no one could have succeeded and then he did some things, both creatively and in how he dealt with talent, that warranted serious criticism. Even then, he was a man of tremendous gifts and it was impossible to look at the last few decades of his life and not feel your heart break a little.” Comic books.
