Here’s an impromptu interview by reporter-in-training Hannah Kay J, courtesy of her media instructor, Griffin Kwanjang. This took place at 2016’s Cincinnati Comic Expo, I believe. Enjoy!
Look what I found in a drawer:
This folder, with the Thrift ‘E’ Markets imprint, was created to hold WWII-era ration coupons.
Today, however, it contains a variety of random, assorted and sometimes inexplicable items of interest, presumably placed there after the book outlived its original purpose — most likely by my Grandparents, Nellie and Oscar Boldman.
I’ll be unveiling and presenting the folder’s contents in posts during the coming days. ‘Rationing’ them out, so to speak, get it? Yuk yuk!
Seems like my Dad was a Stan Lee fan before I’d ever heard of the guy. I uncovered this hand-me-down in one of the boxes from my house disaster of a few years ago. More “You Don’t Say!” is a little-seen non-Marvel Universe project by Stan, consisting of his humorous dialogue affixed to photos of political figures of the day, namely President Kennedy and crew.
I started my comic book career writing Superman stories for Silver-Age comics legend, editor Julius Schwartz. Here are a few issues featuring my stories, as they appeared in overseas editions!
I’m looking forward to my annual trip north to Akron and the Akron Comicon! You should come too, I’d love to see you there!

The Cincinnati Comic Expo is almost here! I’ve been a guest at every one since it launched and have great memories of the new and old friends I’ve encountered there. Off the top of my head, Murphy Anderson, the late great Russ Heath, and a bunch of my Kubert School pals. Anyway, click below:
