On today’s episode, Greg shares a panel discussion he moderated for last year’s HeroesCon featuring two comic book legends: Larry Hama and Carl Potts! Plotting the backgrounds of these two gentlemen on a Venn diagram would almost give you a single circle, as they are both Asian-American cartoonists with military backgrounds (Hama served in the Army while Potts grew up in a Navy household) who not only worked as editors for Marvel Comics during the 80’s, they would both account for a large part of that publisher’s non-spandex output, as well as mentor enough Hall of Fame talent during their tenures to field at least one sports team. As the HeroesCon program guide puts it:

From GI JOE to ALIEN LEGION, THE ‘NAM to THE PUNISHER, CONAN to LAST OF THE DRAGONS – LARRY HAMA and CARL POTTS have a combined count of more guns, swords, bombs, lasers, and explosions per career comics page than anyone else in the field. They also helped launch an entire Hall of Fame of comics creators’ careers (Jim Lee, Mike Mignola, etc.). Moderator GREG MATIASEVICH (MULTIVERSITY COMICS) gets these two legendary editors/creators talking about their careers and how they changed comics forever!

Greg Matiasevich has read enough author bios that he should be better at coming up with one for himself, yet surprisingly isn't.

He lives in Baltimore, co-hosts (with Mike Romeo) the Robots From Tomorrow podcast, writes Multiversity's monthly Shelf Bound column dedicated to comics binding, and can be followed on Twitter at @GregMatiasevich.

    Today’s guest is not only a man of his times, but several others as well. When he’s not re-enacting 17th century English civil warfare, he’s spreading the gospel of 2000AD, the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, as the now-Brand Manager of Rebellion/2000AD. But it’s his role as author of the new book I AM THE LAW: How […]
