The CBA Magic returns, in COMIC BOOK ARTIST BULLPEN!

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 That previously unpublished all-comics Abel appreciation (assembled by Rick Parker) includes strips by Joe Kubert, Walter Simonson, Kyle Baker, Marie Severin, Gray Morrow, Alan Weiss,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!

ISBN-13: 978-1-60549-106-6

The spirited biography of one of the most prolific creators in the history of American comics! From a start in 1947 at the Simon & Kirby shop, he co-created the legendary Western strip American Eagle, and became an EC Comics mainstay, working with Harvey Kurtzman on MAD and Two-Fisted Tales. In addition to a 40+ year association with Cracked magazine, his pivotal Marvel Comics work included an extended run inking Herb Trimpe on The Hulk, and teaming with sister Marie Severin to create the definitive comics version of King Kull. Throughout a storied career, he freelanced for virtually every major publisher, and remained a workhorse up ’til his final Dark Horse mini-series at age 89.

Included in this volume is a special “American Eagle” section, an eye-popping art gallery, and extensive personal photos and artifacts (including WWII “Victory Mail” cartoons and handmade greeting cards for his family). Also featured are commentary from over 25 peers gathered just for this book, including Neal Adams, Richard Corben, John Byrne, Russ Heath, Walter Simonson, and many others. Written by Greg Biga and multiple Eisner Award-winner Jon B. Cooke, with an introduction by Howard Chaykin, foreword by Mort Todd, and afterword by Chuck Dixon, this profusely illustrated book celebrates the centennial of the two-fisted artist’s birth!!

Jack Kirby’s “Old Gods & New” ships May 26!

I’m in a really good place (!) today, thanks to the arrival of my sample copy of the Limited Hardcover Edition of Jack Kirby Collector #80—the double-size “Old Gods & New” book! It traces Kirby’s use of mythological gods from his earliest 1940s work, through Thor, the New Gods, Eternals, and Captain Victory, before culminating with Hunger Dogs! If you’re a lifelong fan of the Fourth World like me, this is the book for you.

Along with Kirby & Lee: Stuf’ Said and Jack Kirby’s Dingbat Love, this is one of the three books I’m most proud of from my 25+ years as an author, editor, and publisher. See for yourself when it’s released on May 26! You can preview it and pre-order it HERE!
