“Back Issue” 32 delves into tech
“Back Issue” from Two Morrows is one of my favorite magazines. It typically delves into the comics of the 1970s and 1980s, which is the stuff I grew up with. I wasn’t sure the “tech, data and hardware” issue would be my cup of tea, but as I dug into the magazine, it’s got quite a bit of great stuff.
A “Green Lantern” interview with Joe Staton and Ethan Van Sciver covers essentially my two favorite eras of “Green Lantern” — the “Corps” era with Steve Englehart as a writer, and the modern Geoff Johns run.
Then, there’s a rundown of the “ROM” series, which I’ve only read parts of. From the article, it seems like it’s one of the high points of the career of writer Bill Mantlo, so at some point, I’d like to check it out. Rights issues may preclude a reprint, so the best way to read “ROM” continues to be haunting the back issue bins. There’s also an article about the career of Mantlo, and about the 1992 hit-and-run accident that left him in a coma for over a year. When Mantlo awoke, he had massive brain damage, and still requires around-the-clock care. Those who liked his work, and would like to send notes or donations, can send them to his brother, Michael Mantlo, 425 Riverside Dr., Apt 12-E, New York, NY 10025.
Floating World Comics in Oregon held a benefit auction for Mantlo, with art based on ROM. “Back Issue” #32 reprints several of these pieces.
The creators behind DC’s “Who’s Who” recap the genesis and execution of that project.
