I’d like to thank Tom Spurgeon for including me in this year’s Holiday Interview series at The Comics Reporter. I’ve been reading Tom’s work for years, but I finally got a chance to meet him last month at the Festival of Cartoon Art at Ohio State. He served as moderator for the Walt Kelly panel where Kerry Soper, Steve Thompson, and I got to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the cartoonist’s birth in 1913. The panel, like the Festival, was a lot of fun.

I’m thrilled and honored to be part of this year’s interviews, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. Also be sure to read the ones Tom posted earlier this week!
And since I talk so much about Mr. Tawny in this interview, I think I’ll include this panel from Otto Binder and C.C. Beck’s “Captain Marvel and Mr. Tawny’s Personality Peril!” from Captain Marvel Adventures #115 (December, 1950; also reprinted in Shazam! Limited Collectors’ Edition #1, Summer 1973).
