The first issue of Man O War just solicited this month. Still waiting on the rest.

I almost ordered Bluewater's bio of Jack Kirby (for which I'm sure the Kirby estate gave approval and received a large payment), until I had the sneaking suspicion the material is likely lifted from Comic Book Comics (which puts the story of young Jacob Kurtzberg in context with the history of the beginnings of the American comic book industry) and Pure Imagination's Jack Magic (produced by Greg Theakston, one of Kirby's associates).




Oh, and I'm still waiting for Bela Lugosi #'s 2 and 3, Kerry.

Penciler wanted ad. No pay, but you get to keep your artwork!

What if your sneaking suspicion is wrong and *actually* the material is likely lifted from Joe Simon's "The Comic Book Makers" and Gerard Jones' "Men of Tomorrow"? You could be missing out.

Either way, it's likely just a retread of material that can be found elsewhere, more competently executed.

It still depends on your sneaking suspicion being correct. There's a million valid reasons not to buy someone's book, why not go with one of those instead? Or at least pretend to be doing that.

Whatsamatter, Weemie? Upset that you can't defend Kerry Gammill's soliciting for *TWO ISSUES* of Bela Lugosi that he hasn't delivered? I pre-ordered them, did you? And it's *BLUEWATER*, asshole. Look at the cover and compare the caricature of Jack Kirby with the one from Comic Book Comics. At least.

The third issues of Kerry Gammill's Lugosi comic still hasn't come out, but this appeared:

I would be interested to know how this came about. Pretty neat.
