Deconstructing Comics #417: Rus Wooton wrote us some letters

Rus Wooton lettering

We turn our attention to comics lettering this week, and longtime letterer Rus Wooton. Rus worked on a lot of Marvel books in the 2000s, and his work can currently be seen on numerous Image titles, including Black Science (left). Tim talks with Rus about what makes lettering good or bad, how to get lettering work, the pluses and minuses of all-caps lettering vs “sentence case,” comics written and drawn by Rus, and more.

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 35: Do The Brokeback

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300Between the new female Thor, Falcon taking over as Captain America, and this week’s rumors that X-23 will take over as Wolverine (after, you know, Sabretooth takes over as Wolverine), Amanda and I talk about succession in superhero comics in general. We start with the idea that DC is all about succession while Marvel never has been, the kinds of stories that could work as new people put on the old costumes, what probably couldn’t work, and what ulterior motives Marvel could have for such recent character churn.

We also discuss:

  • Batwoman: Futures’ End One Shot, written by Marc Andreyko with art by Jason Masters, and:
  • Edge of Spider-Verse: Gwen Stacy, Spider-Woman, written by Jason LaTour with art by Robbi Rodriguez!

And now the legalese:

  • We record this show live to tape. Which might mean a looser show that you are used to from other comics podcasts, but it also means anything can happen. Like ruminations over the flat affect of people rescued by Superman in 1970s Hostess Fruit Pie ads.
  • This show contains spoilers. While we try to shout out a warning ahead of time, consider this a master, blanket warning.
  • This show contains adult, explicit language, and is not safe for work. You no longer need to sell Grit subscriptions to get headphones, so go out and do so.

Superman Fan Podcast Episode #301 Part II: Superman Family Comic Book Cover Dated May 1960: Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #17!

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane 17!

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane 17!

SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 17, May 1960, was published on March 24, 1960. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. It featured the issue’s second story. All three stories have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY VOL. IV.

– THE GIRL THAT ALMOST MARRIED CLARK KENT (9 pgs.), writer is unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and comicbookdb.com, but the Grand Comic Book Database credits Robert Bernstein as the writer. All sources agree on the artist, the classic Lois Lane artist Kurt Schaffenberger.

– LANA LANG, SUPERWOMAN (9 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, but Jerry Siegel was credited as the writer, according to the Grand Comic Book Database and comicbookdb.com. Because there is some discrepancy about the writer credit, I won’t credit this story toward Jerry Siegel’s total of silver age stories. This story was also reprinted in 80 PG. GIANT #3 (1964, published with the DC comic books cover dated September 1964, and had the cover price of a quarter.

– HOW LOIS LANE GOT HER JOB (8 pgs.), was written by Otto Binder and drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger. The subtitle for this story was THE FIRST UNTOLD STORY OF LOIS LANE. It has also been reprinted in SUPERMAN: DAILY PLANET.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue’s ads and other features, including the LETTERS TO LOIS column.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 28 titles carried the May or May/June 1960 cover date, which were covered back in Episode 213, for the week of January 11, 2013.

The next issues featured will be the Superman comic books cover dated April 1963. Part I will highlight SUPERMAN 160 and Part II will focus on ACTION COMICS 299!

Then we will return to the Superman Family comic books cover dated June 1960: Part I featuring SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 45, and Part II: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 110!
