Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of guys who lost all hope in their lives when the Fans of Central Jersey crumpled in 1978? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
There is no amount of conversation in the interview that follows that will possibly satisfy a 1970s comic books fan such as myself.
Look, I have read and studied comics all the way back to the dawn of time and there is no era I enjoy more than the four-color symphonies produced from about 1969 to 1978.

Black comics that weren?t actually black but seemed it at the time, including Black Lois Lane and Black Green Lantern.
How about subsequent Black comics that were more Black than that, including Black Panther Luke Cage: Hero for Hire, Blade the Vampire Killer, Brother Voodoo, and even Tony Isabella?s Black Lightning.
Steranko?s History of Comics. The explosion of comics fandom as an industry, including the first Comic-Con, the first Overstreet Guide, and the development of a resale marketplace for original comic book pages. The Comic Buyers Guide and Murray Bischoff.
I was a teen-ager and I couldn?t wait for the new comics to be delivered on Wednesdays to the Krauszer?s Dairy Store a short bike ride from my house, or for the Braunsteins to bring the latest issues to monthly Fans of Central Jersey meetings at the North Brunswick, New Jersey, Recreation Center.
For these reasons and many more, I?m like a pig in mud reading the latest installment of Twomorrows Publishing?s American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1970s, written by Jason Sacks and edited by Keith Dallas. I could get lost in the stories, pictures and memories of this fantastic volume for days, maybe weeks. I hope you?ll consider buying a copy and doing the same.
(And in the interests of full disclosure, I must mention that I have a title of my own coming out from Twomorrows in 2015. But that had no influence on my decision to feature this book; all my best comics memories originate in the ?70s. And that?s the truth!)
