I am excited to announce that my very first published writing will be appearing in Alter Ego #138. Edited by comic book legend Roy Thomas, Alter Ego is published by TwoMorrows Publishing. Issue #138 is scheduled to ship on February 17, 2016.
It was due to my work on this blog that Thomas generously invited me to contribute to Alter Ego. He asked me to write a short article on the life and career of artist Fred Kida, who passed away on April 3rd of last year.
The cover feature of Alter Ego #138 is an interview of Harlan Ellison by Brian Cremins wherein the acclaimed science fiction author discusses his love for the original Captain Marvel from the Golden Age of comics. Also in this issue are excerpts from the 1944 deposition of Captain Marvel co-creator C.C. Beck from the infamous National Publications / DC Comics lawsuit against Fawcett Comics, as well as a piece Beck wrote in 1981 looking back on that sordid affair.
It is a genuine pleasure to have my first professional writing appear within Alter Ego, a quality publication which I have long enjoyed reading. And it is an honor to be present amongst the prestigious company of Harlan Ellison and C.C. Beck.
I hope that everyone will purchase at copy of Alter Ego #138. It is currently available for pre-order on the TwoMorrows Publishing website. Thank you.
