COMIC BOOK ARTIST BULLPEN collects every issue of the little-seen labor of love fanzine published in the early 2000s by Jon B. Cooke (editor of today’s Comic Book Creator magazine), just after the original Comic Book Artist ended its TwoMorrows run. Featured are in-depth interviews with some of comics’ major league players, including George Tuska, Fred Hembeck, Terry Beatty, and Frank Bolle—and an amazing all-star tribute to Silver Age great Jack Abel by the Marvel Comics Bullpen and others. That previously unpublished all-comics Abel appreciation (assembled by Rick Parker) includes strips by Joe Kubert, Walter Simonson, Kyle Baker, Marie Severin, Gray Morrow, Alan Weiss, Sergio Aragonés, Mort Todd, Dick Ayers, and many more! Includes the never-released issue #7, a new bonus feature on Jack Kirby’s unknown 1960s baseball card art, and a 16-page full-color section, all behind a Jack Kirby cover!
