CBGXtra.com/SDCC Interview

Catching up on things Dept: On the last day of Comic-Con in San Diego this year, a lovely lass with a video camera showed up at the National Cartoonist's Society booth and (politely) shoved said camera in my face. Well the lady was someone I've always wanted to meet, Maggie Thompson, the Senior Editor of the Comics Buyer's Guide and the person I often refer to as "The mother of comics fandom". There 'tweren't such a thing as a comics fanzine until she and her late husband Don started publishing them ca. 1960! (Titles such as Ballast and Comic Art come to mind). Needless to say, I had a blast talking with Maggie that day, and she has posted an excerpt of the video on their site. Since she caught me off guard, you'll just have to deal with all of the "umm"s and "uhh"s...not to mention MY mistakes...hehehe...

Also note that she has posted a bunch 'o cool interviews with notables such as Ray Harryhausen, Wendy and Richard Pini, and many others, so it's worth taking a look.

And since we're on the subject of San Diego Comic-Con 2007, here is a photo by Adrian Velazquez of the participants in our panel discussion at the con (that I kept forgetting to post).

From Left to right are R.C.Harvey, Russ Maheras, Denis Kitchen, Diana Doalson, Harry Guyton and John Ellis.

R.C.Harvey is the author of "Meanwhile" (Milton's biography that just came out this summer); Russ is the author/artist of the 60th anniversary Steve Canyon strip that just appeared in Air Force Times; Denis published 26 issues of Steve Canyon Magazine in the '80' and early '90s (among other things; Diana is Milton's grand-niece and appeared in the Steve Canyon comic strip in the '60s; Harry Guyton is Milton's nephew, Executor of the Estate, and Executive Producer of the Steve Canyon DVDs; John is me, and I represent the Estate and am Producer of the Steve Canyon DVDs. BIG NEWS is coming...
