Sorry for such a short column today, however I’ve got lettering deadlines looming (and much more waiting after that); no rest for the wicked!
If you hadn’t heard, Al Williamson passed away this past weekend. I have no stories to share, however Jeff Parker’s is great. Go read. in addition to having no stories, his influence on my storytelling (for now) is with others. While I haven’t had a possibility to listen to it yet (though it has been downloaded), go listen to mark Schultz as well as Steve Bryant talk about Williamson on this week’s new Word Balloon podcast from John Siuntres.
Speaking of podcasts, I sat down for beer, wings as well as comic book chat with Westfield client Brian Hancock a couple of weeks ago. A short sampler of our chat is on Brian’s many recent Captain America Archives podcast (episode 52), with the full discussion coming up in the next installment (if I recall correctly). It was a mainly a discussion about lettering, however Captain America gets discussed (of course!), as well as there’s lots of other comics chat, too.
Josh Crawley is the tenured Master of catastrophe at Westfield Comics. He is not the keyboardist for Everclear.
