Word Balloon Comic Books Podcast

Jun 15, 2010

This was supposed to be a friendly conversation with Mark Schultz, to discuss his work on DC books like The Spirit with Moritat, Mark's scripting of the Sunday Prince valiant newspaper comic strip with Gary Gianni, and past and future Schultz projects.

Then we learned of the death of artist Al Williamson Sunday.  Mark was good friends with Al and his wife Cori. The good news is Mark and I spent part of conversation talking about Al's seminal work on Flash Gordon. Last Year Mark wrote the Flesk publication collection of Al’s version of Flash.

In addition I wanted another guest to talk about more of Willamson’s incredible art, so I roped Athena Voltaire creator Steve Bryant into a short interview about Al.

The result ? A history lesson of Williamson, Comic Strips, and great comic works from the 50's through the 90's , and a very special WB episode.
