I recently finished reading Pizzolatto’s debut southern crime novel Galveston. While reviewing it on Goodreads I stumbled across this video. After hearing something he said here it got me I’m thinking maybe that’s been my problem over the last 25 years, because I’ve always also been a musician, maybe not full-time, but certainly in tandem with also being a writer.

Unless you’re very young, uninformed or simply live under a rock, then you know how special the collaboration between Stan Lee and Jack Kirby was most notably in the 1960s. The Marvel Comics of yesterday, today and tomorrow would not be possible were it not for they synergistic collaboration of those two men creator what we know as Marvel Comics (and movies and TV) today. And I gotta say those images and pages of Kirby’s look so beautiful! I would love to have all 101 issues plus the annuals now. I had a few of Stan & Jack’s run as a kid, sprinkled in with the Silver & Bronze Age comics I’d acquired in the mid-1980s.
