Supply, Demand & Comics

If you google “supply and demand,” this is what you’ll get. “the amount of a commodity, product, or service available and the desire of buyers for it, considered as factors regulating its price.” Most of us get it, but as a personal exercise, I thought it would be interesting to apply this concept to several aspects of the comic book industry. Especially since the grumblings about the economics of this business seem to be louder than ever.

Happy 4th of July!

Every hour, artists join others from around the world in the largest community of creators in the history of comics. Comics — that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We should be united in our common interests. Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from exclusivity, censorship, or editorial interference — but from mediocrity. We’re fighting for our right to draw, to write. And should we win the day, the 4th of July…

The Truth Behind This Photo

As some of you may have seen before, this picture (by Jane Haslam) of me in the original 1966 Batcave accompanies my online bio. But there have been some folks who have accused me of posting a doctored photo which I have taken great offense to. The truth is, I have been friends with various superheroes for decades and today April 1, 2019, I present these additional pictures as proof of my past associations with certain famous crimefighters. I hope this settles one and for all any doubts as to my true place in pop culture history.

A Tale of Two Posters

The year was 1983 and I was a 15-year-old George Perez fan who drew two posters in his honor. One full of Marvel heroes going to the right and the other full of DC characters going to the left, with all the characters’ poses mirroring each other. A comic book shop in Long Beach, CA put them both up for sale on commission basis but only the DC one was sold. To who, I had no idea. Thirty four years later, a gentleman by the name of Stephen Csomos contacted me on social media and said he had one of my…
