Comic Icons Volume 1: Jim Mooney

Yep, Comic Icons Volume 1: Jim Mooney. You can buy it through

Why you ask? Because I have a spot in it with some of the best artists in the business. What an honor.

Here is a blurb;

Book DescriptionIn the spirit of the Modern Masters series of books, TwoMorrows Publishing proudly presents the Comics Icons series, celebrating top artists from throughout comic book history! And who better to launch this new series than Jim Mooney, renowned as Supergirl artist extraordinaire? Mooney drew his first comic only months after Superman first appeared, and worked consistently in the field from 1940 to the mid-1990s. His 60-year career includes art for the top Golden Age publishers, leading to a 22-year stay at DC Comics, where he helped define the company look for Superman, Batman, Superboy and Supergirl. Also known for his later work on Marvel's Spider-Man, among others, his fans are legion, and this book long overdue. It features rare and unpublished art, direct from Mooney's files, plus the artist's painting and personal photos. There's commentary and contributions from Steve Gerber, Mark Evanier, Richard Howell, Gene Colan, Roy Thomas, Tony Isabella, Joe Sinnott and others, plus all-new art created especially for this book, as Norm Breyfogle, Bob Almond, Mark McKenna, Jim Tournas, Bob McLeod and others ink Mooney pencils. Plus, there's an interview with Mooney's niece Libby Titus, wife of Steely Dan Founder Donald Fagen (for whom Jim has produced album art), and an introduction by Star "The Man" Lee.

Daniel Best Wrote it, and is producing some nice books on Comic artists. They are fascinating and I would recomend them for anyone that grew up with a love for comics and anyone who has not so they can see what they are missing. Or just to support a really nice author.

Hopefully I can post a cover later.

See you next time...Jimmy
