Wisconsin State Journal included me in their article about Wizard World Comic Con 2017! Nice article, quoting me along with Stan Lee and my buddy, Nick Choles.
Lee’s prolific characters and momentous career inspired many illustrators and writers today, including Madison artist Jeff Butler, who remembers the time when comic books were marketed solely to kids. He said Lee changed that.
“We all want heroes, I suppose, and the cheap literature sort of provided this pantheon of characters that were all bigger than life and very colorful,” Butler said. “Stan (Lee) took it a step further and made them human. They have all these powers, yet they have all the foibles and responsibilities of regular people.”
