I got WoodThe much missed Hartmut sent me an email today, and in it, he included a few links to things he thought 'might be of interest to me'.
And they all were, and none more than this, the legendary 22 Panels That Always Work by Wally Wood.
Wood was, as a human being, a sad, miserable train wreck. But as an artist, he was unparalleled and peerless. Taking a look at these panels cannot help but make anyone with any desire to draw comic books better at the job they aspire to.
Hartmut also sent me this, a link to some scans of a very early issue of ALL STAR COMICS which is interesting to anyone who cares about the original adventures of the nutballs currently running around in JSA... except, of course, for the fact that Batman and Superman didn't exist back then; they didn't come along until the 70s/80s/90s whenever it was nowadays that Clark Kent dashed into his first phone booth and that ominous bat first flew through Bruce Wayne's window.
He also sent me a link to some stuff whereby a publisher is looking for certain very specific types of submissions, and I'll be looking into that, too. More on it as and if it develops.
Meanwhile, thanks, Hartmut. And have a great Christmas!
