    1963 Interviews
    1963 Interviews by Tom Field

    Affable Al I have seen the Sweatshop, and it stinks.

    No, make that reeks--offends the senses with its hot, humid air and putrid after-smell of days gone by, when today's art studio was yesterday's meat factory.

    But just beneath the nausea is the powerful stench of...creativity!

    Why, that's Affable Al's cigar you smell, Roarin' Rick's tube-steak lunch, Sturdy Steve's 'pick-me-up punch,' Kooky Kandi's perty perfume--all about you the air of Sizzlin' Sweatshop action!

    I was the luckiest fan alive to be in the midst of such gut-wrenching glory. And it all had begun with a phone call.

    "I'm a big fan," I told Kooky Kandi when I called the Sweatshop, whose unlisted phone number I had wrested from comics great Ed "The Emperor" Evans for the measly price of a bottle of fine wine.

    I explained to her that I had read comics since I was a young boy in the '40s and that now, even as a substitute English teacher in a midwestern school for troubled youth, I followed my favorite heroes and dreamed of one day being able to create my own four-color adventures.

    "May I speak--just for a moment--with Affable Al?," I asked, but alas, he was out of the office.

    "No matter," I said. "Just let him know that I also edit, in my spare time, a little fanzine called Secret Identity, which I mail to comics fans all over the world, and I was just hoping to maybe get a quick interview with Affable Al and some of the Sweatshoppers..."

    "Did you say fanzine?," Kandi said, and I said yes. "Did you say 'all over the world?,'" she said, and I said yes.

    Suddenly, Affable Al walked into the office, and the next thing I knew, he was on the phone inviting me to visit the Sweatshop and interview him and Roarin' Rick and Sturdy Steve and--and all the guys (and Kandi)!

    In fact, he said, he even would give me a free ad for back-issues to put in Secret Identity, and he would give me free artwork for the special 'Sweatshop' issue!

    What a guy, Affable Al--even if he does say so himself!

    Enjoy with me now, please...a visit to the Swingin' '63 Sweatshop!!
