This week on Creannotators, I talked with cartoonist Tom Scioli about his Marvel work on Fantastic Four: Grand Design, the recent biography, Jack Kirby: The Epic Life of the King of Comics, and the Stan Lee vs Jack Kirby credit debate!
On Comic Book Herald’s ‘Creannotators’ I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. Creannotators is an audio/visual annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
Fantastic Four: Grand Design follows in the tradition of the recent X-Men: Grand Design, and it’s focused on telling the history of this team in the Marvel Comics universe. We also talk Scioli’s new Jack Kirby gio. I read Jack Kirby: The Epic Life of the King of Comics in a single sitting. I think it’s a fantastic work, and will definitely be among my favorites on my 2020 best of lists.
