How Neal Adams Changed The Face of Comics - And Why He's Not Done Yet

Some people don't like Neal Adams - which he's fine with. He just keeps doing his thing. The man is 75 and he's not slowing down. But what I've always loved about the man - besides his work, which I loved before I ever met him and got to know him - is his passion and energy. In our conversation, he said "This is the greatest time in the history of art" and he spoke about cosplay about artistic possibilities, about so many things. He loves the state of comics today, he things that things are better than ever, and he loves being a part of it.

Trina Robbins Opens up about Dope and her lost Wonder Woman Tales

It's no secret that I'm a great admirer of Trina Robbins and I've had the chance to talk with her a few times over the years. We spoke recently about her upcoming book Dope, which she originally wrote and drew in the early 1980s, how she adapted her father's short story collection to comics, what Wonder Woman has meant to her, and more.

How Hard Case Will Bring a Seedy Underbelly to Comics

I'm a big fan of Charles Ardai, Christa Faust and Gary Philips. I've read most (maybe all?) of the books each has written over the years and I got to talk with them about the new line of Hard Case Crime Comics.

Nancy Burton: The Comics Journal Interview

Nancy Burton aka Nancy Kalish aka Hurricane Nancy aka Panzika was one of the first women in the underground comics movement of the 1960s and more than that, was one of the first people in New York's underground comics scene. She was drawing comics for The East Village Other starting in 1965. She stopped making art in the early 70s, though she started again a few years ago. I was thrilled that she was willing to talk with me about her work and her life. I think that she's making the best work that she's ever done right now and people should know her and her work.
