News: Alter Ego #72 Hits The Stands!

Dick Rockwell On Being The 36 Year Ghost Of The Great Milton Caniff - In His Last Interview

We were contacted by Alter Ego Editor Roy Thomas a few months ago, to provide some scans of Steve Canyon strips...but these weren't the work of Milton Caniff, they were pencilled and inked by Dick Rockwell following Milton's untimely death. Norman Rockwell's nephew Dick worked for Milton from 1952 through 1988, and though a true unsung hero, he passed away in 2006. Harry and I have thought that Rockwell never got the recognition he deserved, and we were delighted to hear that Roy was publishing an interview that Jim Amash conducted with Dick in 2004.

For those of you interested in the Caniff/Canyon world, this extensive 15 page interview is choc-a-block with reproductions of the work he did with Milton (including the very last Steve Canyon daily continuity strip)! For everyone else there are scans of his extensive comicbook work, including pages for Timely, DC, Marvel, Biro, Fawcett, Hillman, Quality and others...a lot of neat stuff. You can order the 100 page magazine from their site (for $9.00 plus postage), or you can pay $2.95 and download a PDF file of the issue. Either way, there's a lot of great stuff packed in there (and not just Dick).

Okay, if you're going to show some DC characters (authorized), I'll ask the question straight out. Anybody considered what might happen when STEVE CANYON, Brig Gen, USAFR; HAL JORDAN, (Rank Unknown), USAFR; and POTEET CANYON, (Rank Unknown) meet in connection with an F-22 deployment?
