“Not Your Average Joes” is the theme of CBC #20, headlined by an exhaustive interview with Joseph Michael Linsner on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of his signature creation Cry for Dawn, discussing his many years as a comics professional, and current work on Vampirella. Then CBC catches up with the great Joe Sinnott, to discuss his years at Marvel, inking Jack Kirby’s work, and his nearly forgotten solo work. Plus Joe Jusko, Craig Yoe and Rich Buckler interviews.
It's a fully illustrated (with surprising photos) visit with a guy named “Yoe,” Craig Yoe, the artist as well as the creative force behind Yoe Books. Plus, another installment of the Rich Buckler interview and, of course, Hembeck! And retailer Joe Field reveals the origins of Free Comic Book Day. And Stan Sakai. And there's also a talk with Linsner’s significant other, Kristina Deak-Linsner, about the distinction of being Vampi’s first female creator to write and draw her in the same series!
Sinnott talks about his early exposure to the Marvel Age of Comics and his fabulous “Corner Box Collection,” which honors the great ’60s cover design element produced by the House of Ideas! Sinnott did his own pencilling and inking for many years, and was a regular in Marvel's 1950s Atlas titles and the pre-hero Marvel titles. His science fiction stories were often some of the best in that era. He also worked for the obscure Treasure Chest and you'll learn more about that here.
Bud's Aside-- Treasure Chest gets a bad rap as a collectible, a Catholic comic book that was distributed through schools, and ran during the school year from 1946 to 1972. Although many issues were a bit on the dull side, others offer some fine work, not only by Sinnott but also by Murphy Anderson, Jim Mooney, Graham Ingles, Joe Orlando, Bob Powell, Bernard Baily, and particularly by Reed Crandall!! Crandall not only drew many wonderful biographies of mountain men and other heroes of the west, but his long-running serial This Godless Communism is THE highlight of the series. --Bud
