"That's how that last year strikes me too. In the later 1960s the companies transitioned to having the original art done on a smaller page size. I've seen it argued that one effect was the amount of dialogue was cut back, and I think it…"
"The Sub-Mariner/Magneto storyline was likely Lee's; it's a return to stuff he did with Kirby in the first third of the run, and Namor's occupation of New York recycles Fantastic Four Annual #1. To my surprise, Mike's Amazing…"
"Plotting involves coming up with ideas and working the stories out in detail. It's certain Lee and Kirby both came up with plot ideas. I think the plotting-in-detail was more usually Lee's early on and Kirby's later. The SHIELD…"
"I think more of this stuff has gone on than we realise: comics influencing movies and TV. The super-car in The Spy Who Loved Me can be explained as an updated version of the Aston Martin, but it's awfully like the ones from the 1960s SHIELD…"
"Robert Bernstein certain wrote for Atlas: O'Hearn has posted was credited in the artist's signature on Black Rider stories he did with Jay Scott Pike. The character is a copy of the Durango Kid, a movie character played by Charles…"
"Apparently, "The Princess in the Atom" in #25 was by Ray Cummings and continued in #26. Martin O'Hearn has a post on Ray Cummings's work on "Captain America" here.
"Golden Girl" from #66 was written by…"
"Re Superman 2020, it was a back-up feature in the vein of the 30th century Superman stories of the 1960s. 2020 was depicted as an era of futuristic fashions and fantastic technology like flying cars. New Metropolis was an aerial city. The hero was…"
"Luthor was young or middle-aged when he first appeared, with a full head of hair. But when he first appeared in the newspaper strip he was elderly. I think what really happened was Ultra and Luthor were combined."
"I've found Wikipedia to be good on Norse myth, as the articles often discuss how we know, and variations in the sources.
It wasn't until hieroglyphics were deciphered in the 19th century that it became possible to read Ancient…"
"Re Simonson's first run on Thor, the issues were heavily inked by Tony DeZuniga. It's my guess the editor wanted a standard look. I think Simonson must've co-plotted as the issues have Simonson-ish elements. Likewise on Hercules…"
"Re The Lady Vanishes, the script was already written when Hitchcock was brought in. Wikipedia says changes were made to the script, but mainly at the beginning and end. Frank Lauder and Sidney Gilliat wrote quite a number of good-ish films together,…"
Henry K has asked me to relay an invitation to you: I'd appreciate it if you could let Luke Blanchard, Phillip Portelli, and anyone else who posted in my "NEW GODS", "WESTERNS" and "BIBLE" threads know about my KIRBY LAND group.
After a Jack Kirby Fan Group forum was hijacked by an unscrupulous individual on Facebook, Henry began his own forum, titled "Kirbyland" where he, and like-minded individuals continue to promote their beliefs on Facebook.
He wanted you to know.
