Covering Space Ghost

Great galaxy! I almost forgot!

Yup, I was at it again, this time writing the cover story for Back Issue magazine — the COVER STORY! As you can probably guess, I’m pretty excited about it, especially considering the not-inconsiderable amount of work that went into it. Back Issue #59 came out this week, and if you’d like to read all about Space Ghost’s comic book history you should give it a look. It’s a tale of comic-style inspiration, the capricious nature of publishing, an unexpected change in direction and, of course, unrestrained lust in war-time. (One of these things is untrue.)

Seriously, though, I had a great time writing it and I think you’d enjoy reading it. And as if Space Ghost (not to mention a fantastic cover by Steve Rude) weren’t enough, the whole issue is dedicated to “toon comics,” featuring articles on everything from Marvel’s Hanna-Barbera titles to Jonny Quest to Star Blazers — fun stuff. Check it out!

    Nice. I am glad it wasn’t the cover of one of those 5 cent arrest mags. Been there, done that.
