Carmine Infantino
Part One

  Started with Sheldon Mayer during the golden age, he became the penciller of the first silver age story and continued to draw The Flash (then Adam Strange and Batman) until he became art director at DC Comics. He then became editorial director then publisher while DC went from being a family-owned business to a small part of a major corporation (Time-Warner). After they fired him, he pencilled for Warren then Marvel then DC again. We discussed the influence of artists such as Modiglianni and Milt Caniff on his work. No wonder it took so many shows to cover his career. David Spurlock joined us in the studio for this interview.

 Arvell Jones
Part One

  He pencilled dozens of characters for Marvel and DC back in the 1970s and early '80s before going back to Detroit and working in advertising. He and his brother Desmond (also an excellent artist) started an internet company, fantasticon.com with articles, interviews, comics and video. We had fun reminiscing about the '70s and being part of the changes Marvel was going through, especially in the maturity and complexity of the storylines and the diversity of the characters and creators.

Chris Companik

  Our topic for this show was sex. Straight, gay, bi, kinky, vanilla.... X-rated comix seem to have more story content than x-rated movies. Chris did a comic strip for Bound and Gagged magazine and there is some sexual content to much of his other work. We talked about role models and about Chris's parents.

Jamie Rich

  Membership Drive special. I was sick, so Mercy Van Vlack took my list of questions, added some of her own, and replaced me. We discussed what it's like being the editor of Oni Press with all the distribution and circulation problems an independent company has these days. Oni has a lot of variety to its line and we discussed what comics have to offer to different genres, with special attention to the books Oni was including as part of the WBAI Membership Drive Premium.
