 Will Eisner
Mark Evanier

  I again substituted for Susan Brown's show, "Punk and Hardcore," but there was less music than usual because the whole show was devoted to Will Eisner, possibly the best and most important person in U.S. comics history. His name came up in other interviews more than any other artist. He was the artist other artists talked about and learned from and admired. Former 'Nuff Said! co-host Mercy Van Vlack was with me the entire time and comics historian (and comics writer) Mark Evanier joined me at the top of the show. I then played portions of our 1999 interview with Eisner.

 Sean Chen
Bernard Chang

  I again substituted for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," playing music for the first hour and a half then an interview with two artists who started at Valiant Comics in the early '90s. Since then Sean worked at DC, drew Ironman and Elektra and is now doing X-Men the End for Marvel. Bernard is doing illustration, some Batman, animation for startrek.com and storyboards for TV commercials. There was a lot of great information about breaking into the business. Recorded at a Big Apple Con. With Allan Rosenberg.

 Marshall Rogers

  Another substitution for Susan Brown's show, "Punk and Hardcore," but with the entire time devoted to 'Nuff Said! with one of the most acclaimed artists of our time. His work on Dr. Strange and Silver Surfer was excellent, his creation Captain Quick and the Foozle was wonderful, but his '70s team-up with Steve Englehart and Terry Austin on Batman gave us some of the best comics ever. That team is returning to that character in May and we'll talk about that, the craft of sequential art, the craft of coloring comics, the beginnings of his career and how attending Kent State during the famous murders affected him. Plus listener phone calls.

 Rich Buckler

  On this substitution for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," I played hard rock music then an interview with the creator of Deathlok for Marvel. Rich was a long-time artist on Fantastic Four and drew numerous books for Marvel, DC and several independent companies. We also talked about surrealism, his surrealistic paintings and his art gallery show in Paris, France.

 Tom Pomplun

  Another substitution for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," doing a live interview with the editor and publisher of Graphic Classics, who has been adapting classic short stories into comics for the past four years. They've adapted authors such as Mark Twain, H.P. Lovecraft, O. Henry, H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Allen Poe, and many others. You're more likely to see these graphic novels in a school library than a comic book store. Tom also worked on the literary magazine Rosebud before publishing comics. After the interview, I played hard rock music until 6 AM.

 Damion Scott

  In this substitution for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," we played a little music and had a conversation with this penciller and inker for several different Batman Family comics over the past few years as well as Spider-Man before that. His unique style is a synthesis of many different art styles past and present from Japan to Africa to modern graffitti. The music reflected that. We also discussed Hip Hop and its relationship to sequential art and took a lot of listener phone calls.

 David Fox
Jordan Cooper
James Jajac

  In this substitution for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," I blended 'Nuff Said! and Monsters from the Id. My guests are in a punk band, have made an independent film about the rise, fall and fans of a fictional syndicated newspaper cartoonist and do an independent literary magazine that includes a lot of comic strips. We played excerpts from their dvd and their cd and talked about each medium. And took listener phone calls. This was a membership drive show.

 Irwin Donenfeld
Julie Schwartz
Carmine Infantino
Irwin Hasen

  In this substitution for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," I followed 1 1/2 hours of hard rock music with an interview with four giants in the field. The son of the founder of DC Comics and its publisher for 15 years, one of the top editors in comics history, one of the top artists in comics history and one-time editorial director of DC and one of the first artists of the golden age of comics. There was a lot of behind the scenes information and a fun atmosphere. Two of these men are deceased (but this was recorded while they were alive), which made this show even more special. With David Spurlock, recorded at a recent Big Apple Con.

Lew Schwartz

  The Brigadoon of comic book radio shows returns, substituting for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore." The first 90 minutes were hard rock music then I played the tape of a Big Apple Con panel with two golden age Batman artists. We also talked about what they've been doing lately and they spoke as much about Batman co-creator Bill Finger as about their own art

 Prof. William Foster

  I again substituted for Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore." Delightful live guest this time. "Looking for a Face Like Mine," was the focus of the conversation (his last show with me, on 3/31/04, is transcribed in that book, but don't hold that against him). We went back into comics history all the way to 1895 talking about the changing nature of blacks in comics, both as characters and creators. From 3:30 to 4:30 I played hard rock music. From 5:30 to 6:00 we took listener phone calls.

  For this substitution of Susan Brown's overnight show, "Punk and Hardcore," I played hard rock music for a little over an hour then played a taped interview with one of the top artists in the comics industry. He's most famous for drawing Justice League and Wonder Woman, but has quite a list of credits in the mainstream and independents. We found out where he gets his models and how he wants to be known.

 "Graphic Novels"

  Graphic novels are known to bring young people into libraries so a librarian friend of a writer I know asked her to recomend some graphic novels. She in turn asked me and later thanked me for the recommendations because they were such a hit. I turned the list into an article in Interlac 174, April, 2005 and a web page on this site and then devoted a radio show to it. I combined the hard rock of Monsters from the Id with the discourse on graphic novels. Interestingly, all listener input was off air, despite my invitations to join the show live.

 Jeffrey Lindenblatt

  For this substitution of Susan Brown's "Punk and Hardcore," a frequent guest from when 'Nuff Said! was a weekly show joined me. Jeff is one of the foremost comic strip experts in the U.S., but we also talked about movie & TV adaptations of comic books and comic strips and about comics history in general. We discussed the changing nature of the politics of comic strip artists as they age, particularly Al Capp, with Bill Weinberg, whose midnight show on the subway strike went long because the host of the show between his and mine couldn't get in because of that same strike (hence the earlier time). There was also some wonderful listener discussion of the Boondocks cartoon. To hear it, click on the Quicktime logo.

 Seth Tobocman

  I think World War 3 Illustrated is one of the most important and artistic comics coming out right now and Seth has been editing it since 1980, always contemporary, relevant, cutting edge and dramatic. He also has had some politically-oriented art shows lately, was a contributor to the recent Wobblies graphic novel, teaches at the School of Visual Arts and has been performing some of his comics with a combination of spoken word, projections and music.

 Trina Robbins
The Danish Cartoons

  It seemed like everyone I'd meet at the radio station asked me if or when I was doing a show on the Danish cartoons that caused so much controversy in the Muslim World. This week is it. And I'm delighted to have comics scholar and historian Trina Robbins to contribute to the discussion. We took a lot of phone calls, some zany and some very intelligent, including Bill Weinberg of Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade who covered the topic on his show the previous week. If you missed it, check out the podcast right.

  I substituted for Susan Brown's show, "Punk and Hardcore" again. Besides being a proprietor of 30th Century Comics in Putney, London, England, Howard was a contributing editor to two of my favorite fanzines, Comics Forum and Comics Focus. His most recent projects are the second edition of the Slings & Arrows Guide, Prime Cuts, Genus Male (two gay anthropomorphic stories in the latest issue), and the upcoming 'zine about comics for/by girls, Sugar & Spice. We spent a lot of time talking about comics and creators we like and why we like them and the history of comics for girls, especially as they were done in England, and talked about his contribution to the Star Trek mythos.

He followed John Stanley on Little Lulu and wrote many other comics, from Batman to Bob Hope. He was also one of the two recipients of the first Bill Finger Award for comics writing excellence and tried to organize comic book writers into a union back in the '60s. We discussed comics history, royalties & creator credits, how current events shape the way a comic book series is created and some of the people he worked with.

 "Movie Adaptations"

  A lot of comics, mainstream and independent, have been adapted into movies and TV shows including several of this summer's "blockbusters." Some are good, some are bad, some are memorable, some are forgettable, some ought to be forgotten. In a way, regular listener/caller Roy Philips was my guest for the first hour then Zorikh Lequidre came into the studio and we continued the discussion. We took a lot of listener phone calls this time. What's your opinion? Send me an e-mail. This was a new substitution for Susan Brown's show, "Punk and Hardcore."

  A Combination Special of my show Eco-Logic (Tuesday mornings 11 AM) and Harry Allen's show Nonfiction (Friday afternoons 2 PM). We discuss environmental issues with three editors and five writer / artists from World War 3 Illustrated magazine. They are masters at using sequential art to convey and succinctly explain complex political and social ideas and the latest issue (#37) is mostly on environmental issues.
    Among the issues discussed on the show are fossil fuel, breast cancer, global warming, nuclear power, oil addiction, rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the war in Iraq, Coral Reefs and renewable energy history. The magazine itself has even more. It's WBAI Membership Drive time and the magazine and a double cd set (with "deleted scenes") of the interviews is our premium.

  Not really an episode of 'Nuff Said!, but a show that would interest most of you. This was a last-minute fill-in of an empty time slot. I played an interview with Alexei from February 29, 2008 where he compared many works of mythopoeic fantasy, with particular emphasis on Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but also including works by C.S. Lewis, Willliam Morris, Diane Duane, Ursula LeGuin and authors from all over the world.

  One of the reasons the recent Egyptian protests were nonviolent was the inspiration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the ways they learned about Dr. King was from a comic book published many years ago by the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) and translated recently by the American Islamic Congress (AIC). AIC in Cairo was getting requests for the comic before the protests "spread" from Tunisia. Richard Deats knew the Kings and has been a long-time struggler for Civil Rights. We talked about the role of arts and culture in social change in general and this comic book specifically. For more information, see also this web site

  I substitute hosted for Jim Freund for his show "Hour of the Wolf." A lot has happened in the comics industry since 'Nuff Said! was a regular show. Independent and internet comics are bigger than ever. The mainstream seems more formulized than ever. Gina and Patrick have been keeping me up a little on what's been going on for a while now and they have interesting and thought-provoking analyses, for example, on how female characters are treated.

 Mercy Van Vlack
"Nick Cardy"

  I subbed for Jim Freund's science fiction show Hour of the Wolf. Of the hundreds of artists Mercy has studied, Nick Cardy is her favorite and the greatest influence on her own art. We talked about why and what it was like when she finally got to meet him and about a story he later told about her. I also took listener phone calls.

     Nick drew Senorita Rita for Fiction House in the '50s, but is best known for his art on Aquaman, the Teen Titans and Bat-Lash in the '60s and most of DC Comics' covers in the '70s. He also worked on one of the first Star Wars posters, drew x-rated comics with Mike Sekowsky, and did satire for Marvel's Crazy magazine and the National Lampoon. He was a Sherman tank driver in Europe during World War II and was awarded two purple hearts. He passed away on Nov. 3, 2013 at the age of 93.

 Jim Salicrup
Chelle Mayer

  I subbed for Jim Freund's science fiction show Hour of the Wolf. My guests were Jim Salicrup and Chelle Mayer. Either one alone would be a great show.

Jim has worked in comics for 44 years, 20 of them at Marvel Comics. His interests include all eras and all styles and he certainly has edited and published many different styles of comics, from many decades and many countries. Check out his Papercutz and Supergenius companies.

Chelle is the granddaughter of one of my favorite people in the history of comics, the great Sheldon Mayer. Not only did he guide the creation of many of the great characters and creators of the Golden Age, such as Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern, but he wrote and drew my favorite long series, Sugar and Spike (which I didn't appreciate until I was an adult), which, like George Carlin, made comments about the weird everyday things we do. And he was the one who urged DC Comics to buy Superman, after they'd already rejected it. She is also an excellent cartoonist and artist herself and I just know her sketchbooks would make her grandfather proud.
