Cool Jerk on MTV? Read on…

I’m gobsmacked! Long-time Cool Jerk reader and comics journalist Sean Kleefeld wrote an article about yours truly on one of his comics blogs — Kleefeld on Webcomics — for MTV Geek. It took me 100% by surprise! Sean did a terrific job in his research and I couldn’t find a single inaccuracy anywhere (not a slight on Sean, but rather that there are oft-times inaccuracies on the Internet).

Sean and I kinda go way back. He used to curate the premier Fantastic Four online database and information repository, and may be the one person (not employed by Marvel) who knows more about the FF than me. He’s one of the architects behind the Marvel Chronology Project — a dizzying, online guide to Marvel characters and their myriad appearances in Marvel Comics. He’s also a frequent contributor to the Jack Kirby Collector (we worked together on a Big Barda piece in 2007) and has a book you should purchase. He was the first to order Hodabeast and in 2009 he even wrote about Darlene’s and my wedding!

Go check out the article— it talks a lot about webcomics and economics i.e. how cartoonists turn a buck while offering their content online for free.

Thanks again, Sean, and MTV!

On sale now — get your copy of Jack Kirby Collector #49 (has The Mighty Thor on the cover) and check out my illustration of Lainie Kazan/Big Barda!

OK. Who’s Lainie Kazan? She’s a singer/actress who starred in “Lust in the Dust” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.” Who is Big Barda? One of Jack “The King” Kirby’s creations for DC Comics in the early 1970s. What do they have in common? EVERYTHING!

Thanks to Sean Kleefeld for sending this gig my way! Sean’s a columnist/writer, pop-culture addict, long-time Cool Jerk subscriber and (former) major domo of the (former) premier Fantastic Four site on the planet.
