Synopsis: DAVID ANTHONY KRAFT interviews his old friend and colleague STEVE GERBER, who circa 1982-83 was working primarily in animation at Ruby-Spears. In this fascinating interview, he describes the censorship of cartoons such as THUNDARR THE BARBARIAN (which he co-created). Gerber also discusses DESTROYER DUCK, his forthcoming STEWART THE RAT project and a biting story about working in television titled "Role Model" (illustrated by VAL MAYERIK and published in ECLIPSE #2).
Synopsis: A too-brief three-page interview with inker TERRY AUSTIN conducted "off the cuff" by DAK. Up for discussion is inking the X-MEN and the much-ballyhooed X-MEN/TEEN TITANS crossover event. Of especial interest is Austin's dishing on his sneaking POPEYE into panels and the Chaykin-Abel murder headlines that periodically appeared.
Synopsis: Comics fan Bill Chadwick pens a brief essay describing his taste in comics (CHIP 'N' DALE is the only book he was regularly reading). Chadwick also tips his political hand by noting he's written for REASON and THE FREEMAN, (two respected Libertarian publications).
