Comic Book Interviews Archives - Page 4 of 7 -

Have we as members of the comic book fandom lost our roots to this genre of camaraderie and cultural heritage? The written values, and artistic panels have seem to lost its meaning in regards to pop cultural imagery and larger than life stories. What I mean by this, is that the convention scene has been overridden by the New York Comic Con’s transformation into a “Hollywood” phenomenon, by which fans purchase countless tickets to re-sell them while celebrities take over with their expensive autograph sessions.  

What is it about graphic novels, or comic books in general that differ from other forms of expression? Is it the symbiotic bond between the thoughts being written down along with the detailed art that brings those literary emotions to life? I ponder this question in regards to Comedian/Actor John Leguizamo. A multifaceted entertainer I had the privilege of meeting during this May’s New York Book Con. Known for his one man shows such as Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, Sexaholix, and Ghetto Klown, John Leguizamo proved that by being ones self, and formulating ones life into their art form,success is possible.  

What makes the Golden age of comics fascinating? Was it the more simpler time and old fashioned middle town America that was highlighted within the panels? Perhaps it was the politics of the time ranging from World War 2 and the war effort, or the whole “red scare” and its paranoid ideals seeping into American ideals.
