Description

A revealing interview with comics pioneer Wendy Pini (Elfquest): her difficult early years and escape to a creative life through fantasy fiction, adventure cartoons, live appearances as Red Sonja, and working at Marvel. Plus Craig Yoe talks about life on the Muppet show with Jim Henson; Gil Kane’s publisher, Larry Koster. Pablo Marcos on his Marvel horror work.

Wendy discusses her years as the quintessential Red Sonja cosplayer, doing live gigs with artist Frank Thorne, and 40+ years of ElfQuest, one of the first creator-owned titles that ushered in the new age of alternative comics, and much more about her amazing career, in a jaw-droppingly candid Q+A. It’s all accompanied by lots of great artwork, right back to the first Elfquest comic, and through her paintings and special projects.

CBC also talks to Richard Pini, ElfQuest co-creator, about their nearly 48-year marriage and their even-older creative partnership!

Delayed from last issue is the final segment of the interview with Craig Yoe, while visiting his New York abode to talk about his work on The Muppets and friendship with legendary Jim Henson, his career-changing book, The Art of Mickey Mouse, and current Yoe Books imprint. Also featured is an interview with Larry Koster, onetime Gil Kane boyhood friend and business partner, about publishing the original paperback novel, Blackmark, and the original adult magazine story, His Name Is… Savage and other adventures with the raconteur comic book artist. Well illustrated with rare Kane artwork.

Plus Michael Aushenker chats with the great Pablo Marcos about his awesome Marvel horror work and so much more! Oh, and not to forget the wonderful Fred Hembeck to round things up and provide some comedy relief!
