COMIC BOOK CREATOR #12's main co-feature is an exhaustive, career-spanning interview with underground comix pioneer HOWARD CRUSE, the extraordinary cartoonist and graphic novelist of the award-winning Stuck Rubber Baby. The artist shares the quintessential American story of his journey of discovery, from Stonewall to Marriage Equality, through self-expression and creativity, all culminating into a truly original and entertaining body of work. Also this issue, we answer the question, "WHAT MAKES JACK KIRBY THE KING OF COMICS?" as we examine the mid-life work of the greatest super-hero creator of all time, from the explosively cosmic developments in Fantastic Four and The Mighty Thor at Marvel in the middle ’60s to the artist/writer's magnum opus, the "Fourth World" saga of New Genesis versus Apokolips! Plus we'll reveal the real-life background drama that unfolded during that tumultuous era, all behind an astonishing cover by STEVE "The Dude" RUDE featuring the Gods of New Genesis! Plus look for other columns and articles on the best of comics, past and present! Don't ask! Just BUY it!
