Got 'em, Got 'em, Need 'em, Got 'em.
We're winding down to the last of our interviews, and we know the curiosity is getting to you!
Do you remember who we already have?
Did we forget somebody?
And the all important, "who the hell is THAT guy, and why does HE get to be in the movie?!?"
Hang on to your checklists - Here we go!
We are forever honored that each of these fine gentlemen let us invade their homes, track mud on their carpets, make awkward small talk, and waste many valuable hours of their time!
These are the legends of Charlton Comics.
Frank McLaughlin - Editor George Wildman - TC Ford - Neal Adams for Continuity Studios
Paul Kupperberg - Roy Thomas - Will Franz - Denny O'Neil
The Romantic Fanatics
Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and Joe Sinnott
Best known for their steamy romance comic artwork
The CPL Gang
Bob Layton - Roger Stern - John Byrne
Assistant Editor Nick Cuti and artist Joe Staton
Hey! Who You?
You might not know these guys....well maybe one or two, BUT they're experts and (more importantly) ACTUAL fans of Charlton comics.
Mitch Hallock - Gary McGinnis - Mike Zapcic - Professor Foster
Don't worry, we heard your concerns!
Many of you were concerned that just because somebody passed away that we're just gonna forget about them!
Absolutely, positively, no way!
Because of some wonderful friends such as historian Chris Irving, & Big Apple Con's Allan Rosenberg we have audio recordings of some of Charlton's greats that left us far too soon.
Dick Giordano Joe Gill Sam Glanzman
The Final Pieces
We'll begin the countdown with two more important guys.
The mortar to our bricks you might say.
Chris Irving Mark Knox aka Fester Faceplant
Historian The man behind the Charlton resurgence
Author of The Blue Beetle Companion
The Closing Chapter
Paul Levitz John Wren
The DC Head Honcho "The man who shut off the lights on the way out".
Watchmen Wrangler He witnessed the death rattle of Charlton Comics.
The One That Got Away
His appearance will be according to the wishes of the people who knew him best.
The One Playing Hard To Get
He's a heavy-hitter in the comic industry, and unlike EVERYBODY else, he keeps shying away from an interview.
Fun Fact: He was actually a Charlton reject, but Nick Cuti knew he was special. SO special in fact, Nick risked his job by hiring him. This guy is important. Maybe he doesn't think so, but WE KNOW he is - and YOU do too!
This is where we need YOUR HELP!
If you see him at a show, (politely) say, "WE NEED YOU IN THE MOVIE!"
So who's the holdout?
There maaaay or may not be two more "creatives" from Charlton that we'll interview, but we're pending the A-OK from them.
When we get the green light, we'll let ya'll know!
One Terrific Weekend
And for all you East Coasters.... Don't forget that this weekend is Terrificon at Mohegan Sun!
Although we won't have a table this year, Keith and Jackie will be around on Saturday. Make sure to say HI!
Should you find yourself needing some extra Charlton-y goodness that weekend, here's some friends to drop by and see!
Newly awarded Eisner Hall of Famer - Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez
See you Saturday, or see you next time!
Up and Atom!
