On October 28, 1985 Professor Coffin #21 rolled off the presses with a cover date of February of 1986. And that was it - the final comic book for Charlton Comics. But this September after 31 years, the Bullseye logo reclaims a spot in your favorite comic book shops! No, we're not joking! CHARLTON IS BACK! If you're up to speed, you probably know that the Charlton resurgence has been steadily growing since the release of Charlton Arrow #1 back in 2014 - and holy wow, if this i
Just in time for a snow storm, our crew trudged forward on our quest to complete the shooting of the movie by hopping on a plane and heading to the hot and humid state of Florida. Keith, Jackie and Jude trekked down with a total of 17 pieces of luggage filled with gear, t-shirts, shorts and flip flops to shoot interviews with E-Man co-creator Nicola "Nick" Cuti and a formal full sit down interview with Tony Stark himself, Bob Layton. Our 14-hr shoot date on Tuesday, December
You bet! We can also walk the walk. But that’s not what we’re talking about today. We’re talking “talk”... and not just talking to talk! Documentaries are famously known as "those talking head films”, which may sound dry, but it isn’t always a bad thing. Because this time, those talking heads are the comic creators we all know and love! I mean, who wouldn't want to listen to Denny O'Neil talk all day? Here's a phone book Denny, we're all ears! But getting back on track, we've
The final weekend in August brought us to the campus of the renowned Paier Art College in Hamden, Connecticut to talk with the illustrious Frank McLaughlin (get it? He illustrates and...yeah). Dean of The College Francis R. Cooley and Vice-President Dan Paier were on hand with some of their students to witness the interview session upon arrival. Paier was most gracious and very excited to have us there at Frank's suggestion as he instructs there part-time to this day. Fran
4th of July weekend brought us to Newtown, Connecticut and into the infamous Cave Comics to interview the man behind TerrifiCon, Mitch Hallock. Mitch is the CEO of Big Fedora Marketing and recently found a new home for TerrifiCon - Mohegan Sun Casino & Hotel in Uncasville, Connecticut! Mitch's knowledge of comic books is astounding and his infectious personality made him a no-brainer to include in the ensemble cast of the documentary. We also did a quick interview with Cave
While Charlton Comics: The Movie will be packed to the gills with artists, writers and editors that are industry legends, we also need to feature some commentary from other people who can pass along knowledge of the Derby, Connecticut publishing company. One of those such people are Professor William H. Foster, a comic book historian based in Middletown, Connecticut. Professor Foster was recently featured in the PBS marathon three-part documentary "Superheroes: A Never-Endin
CharltonMovie took a trip to Kingston, New York to the home of Joe & Hilary Staton to do a second interview with the comic book art legend! What can you say about the Statons except that they are quite possibly the most endearing and welcoming people that you'll find. While we felt like a major inconvience to them invading their home for an afternoon, the Staton's were warm and inviting and we had a great time geeking out with them. We settled in on their three-season porch
A trip to Super Mega Fest Comic Con to visit Mr. Bob Layton (known for his definitive work on Marvel's Iron Man) was next on the agenda for Charlton Comics: The Movie! We met Bob in the summer of 2014 at Connecticut ComiCONN where he was on a Charlton Comics panel with Paul Kupperberg, Denny O'Neil, Frank McLaughlin & Jose Luis Garcia Lopez. Bob's energy was immediately infectious and when we approached him about participating in the documentary project, he answered with a "
