The Comics Reporter

Thanks to Tom Spurgeon for mentioning my weblog and the Kirby Space Odyssey video over on his website comicsreporter.com. Tom does a great job every day of covering the comics industry, while taking a look at the history of the comics medium. Tom co-wrote a book called Stan Lee and the Rise and Fall of the Comic Book with Jordan Raphael, and if you haven't checked it out I recommend you pick up a copy -- it's one of the first books to take an objective look at Stan Lee's propaganda. Thanks again to Tom for the mention.

Here's a rare example where Stan Lee mentions his former co-worker Jack Kirby, from Millie the Model # 107 (March 1962). Art by Stan Goldberg.
