Wow. I remember reading this in my Senior year of High School. I didn’t really know his work and thought the old Stan Lee stuff was corny. I couldn’t have been more wrong. 
Ten years after his death, 2004, I had gone to my first San Diego Comicon with my first graphic novel, then changed my entire life, moving from Long Island to the Lower East Side, living in a building Jack the King himself had lived in some 70 years prior. 
Ten years after that in 2014, it was standing room only in a storefront at the corner of Delancey & Attorney, a pop-up shop for the Jack Kirby Museum, where my good friend Arlen Schumer, the artist behind most of the ad illustration work you saw in every issue on the stands all throughout the 90s, was lecturing on the artistic merits and celebrating his genius to a packed room.

My cosmic alien sister from a parallel universe Ginzilla and I bullshit about everything from 9/11, Atlantis, Magick, Creativity, Masculine/Feminine, and more in this special episode. Listen as I try to inject comics in there but really I’m more interested in becoming real life superheroes with costumes.

On Wednesday, DC Comics will release Sensation Comics, a Wonder Woman anthology that exists outside the New52 Continuity, the next step in their Digital First comic book line. The series is made to be accessible to casual readers who may not be caught up on the continuity reboots and relaunches that DC Comics have put forth over the years; the story brings back the pre-New52 Oracle identity of Barbara Gordon (a.k.a. Batgirl), and it boasts ComiXology driven digital accessibility matched with the top-notch creative talent pairings. (And yes—paper purists will be pleased to know they do a great job on the print editions.)

At the beginning of the Summer ShrinkWrapMedia gave me the opportunity to record my own radio show in a legit studio! Okay, it’s a podcast but we have a producer and everything guys. 

The first name I came up with was COMICBOOK ROCKSTAR RADIO which was a nod to my original re-branding as a writer that began ten years ago when I had a panic attack on the floor of San Diego Comicon ‘04. I gave up comics after that, moved to NYC, got really drunk, roadied for my friend’s metal band, wrote a novel on my smartphone, eventually moved to Brooklyn and co-created a revolutionary digital comic book series powerplaycomic

As I sat in my boxers working on Comicon pictures for EW.com once again this year I was thrown back emotionally & mentally to that time when I gave up all my dreams. I wanted to give up again. The struggle to get kingscountycomics off the ground was getting to me, my complicated love life with a budding burlesque star was making me crazy, and seeing Vito achieve success with his book Stray, well I was jealous. 

I’m getting back on the horse and it all begins anew with this podcast. Please give it a listen and spread the word. The last few episodes feature ginzilla from higherlearningchannel as my co-host, one of my favorite people in NYC. So join us for the ride won’t you?
