Geek atitude?


I have to agree, that was a facinating book. I had always heard there was a connection between National and the old Spicy and Breezy pulps. This book really maped that teritory out without pulling any punches.

No, it certainly didn't pull punches, which is actually what I found so refreshing about it. So many other comics histories are so bland (understandably so considering some of its shady beginnings), Jones' history really gave me a sense of the era's desperation and how young men made their way through it (or, in some cases, didn't).

One thing's for sure: Jones isn't a fan of Batman "creator" Bob Kane. Hoo boy.
