Word Balloon Comic Books Podcast


Dec 2, 2016

Great to welcome Drew Freidman back to talk about his new collection of portraits of Golden Age Comic Creators called More Heroes Of The Comics from Fantagraphics. Volume 2 digs deeper in the history of comic books with more obscure names and interesting faces that populated the comic book studios of the 40s and 50s. 

Drew shares many stories of these creators and his own comic book& celeb encounters from meeting Groucho Marx to working for Stan Lee . We talk about the evolution of his art from his stipple days at Heavy Metal and National Lampoon to his current style. 

We also talk about a kickstarter project to make a documentary about Friedman's art and passion for forgotten pop culture.
