Monday was the birthday of the super amazing Liz Glass! I would have posted this earlier, but I took a day off from work to make her an animated birthday card.
Liz loved it so much, she insisted we share it with the rest of you.
Thanks to everybody who came to New York Comic Con! We had a blast! Because it was in New York, my family was able to come and see that I do indeed have a job! Liz met Chuck D from PUBLIC ENEMY! Their NEW WORLD ODOR CD is terrific! PE's got a new comic, too, so cop it!
One of Lillian's four comic books sold out, and
GOOD LORD! (CHOKE) MY FAVORITE COMIC BOOK OF ALL TIME IS COMING BACK!
People always ask me what comics I loved as a kid, and I have to say "It's EC for me!" I got my first TALES FROM THE CRYPT book at age 10, and from then on I was hooked. For me, it was the comic book equivalent of the Alfred Hitchcock TV show, which I also adored. I used to read TALES FROM THE CRYPT to my younger siblings, Cheryl and Edwin. Family entertainment for sure. My seven-year old brother especially loved "Foul Play", a Jack Davis illustrated tale of a murderous baseball player who is punished by dismemberment. His vengeful teammates play baseball with his body parts, using the arms and legs as bats to hit his head, which is pitched as a ball. Home plate was the guy's heart, and the baselines were his intestines. I read this to a seven-year old, and he grew up to be a Sundance award-winning screenwriter! TALES FROM THE CRYPT IS LIKE MOZART FOR YOUR CHILDREN! ORDER IT NOW!
BONUS! MARVEL ROMANCE COMIC!
Here's a cool one. Someone posted a cartoon I rewrote for Marvel recently.
