Prometheus (also featuring Amanita)
What comics from the 70's did you like when you were growing up?
Primarily Marvel: All of Marvel's horror titles (Werewolf by Night, Tomb of Dracula, Ghost Rider, Frankenstein, Creatures on the Loose, Supernatural Thrillers etc.); Spider-Man, FF, Iron Man, Sub-Mariner and Marvel Team-Up were mainstays.
John and Sal Buscema, Gil Kane, John Romita Sr., Jack Kirby and Neal Adams.
Bleed format pages, overblown Photoshop coloring, the lack of descriptive captions, poor layouts and storytelling.
Seems to be a growing appreciation for the classic material (Masterworks, Archives, Essentials, Showcase) which hopefully will have a trickle-down effect and teach newcomers some much-needed lessons on how to entertain and tell a good story.
NOTE: Now I said that Chris was responsible for the Flashback Universe, but you'll notice he's not yet drawn anything for FBU. I'll back up and explain.
Now might be a good time to ask me why I didn't just ask Chris to help me with Flashback Universe then? Well, as it turns out, I heard he was busy with Chad Bowers working on Dr. Impossible, so I decided to look for someone who might not be busy. That's how I found Pierre.
Anyway, come Heroescon 2007, Chad (who was at the Flashback Universe Booth) introduced me to Chris, and I think we hit it off well. After the con, everyone from the booth (plus friends) went to have dinner, during which Chris and I discussed our love for The Invaders, 70's Avengers and the great Golden Age artists!
To say I'm excited about having Chris onboard to illustrate a Flashback Universe story is really an understatement. :)
