Interview: Aaron Rintoul, author of Masks

A bold experimental work, Masks is a new story from writer/artist Aaron Rintoul and published by Septagon Studios. The story follows a woman named Sara, who captures glimpses of people’s past lives and other jarring events. Meanwhile, she tracks a killer in a tale that is both haunting and jarring.

Interview: Danny Fingeroth, author of The Stan Lee Universe

Mar 9, 2011

When you have two greats of the comic industry discussing the man who is in many people’s minds the great of the comic industry, you sit back and listen to what they have to say. That’s exactly what I did when I interviewed Danny Fingeroth and Roy Thomas, whose current project,The Stan Lee Universe, collects decades’ worth of Lee’s greatest archives, from his notes on the creation of the Fantastic Four to radio interview transcripts to his interactions with luminaries of film, music, and pop culture. It’s a mind-bending trip through comics history, a treat for all true believers. Here, Danny and Roy discuss the book, a compulsively readable document for any comics fan.
