  1. Great story about the note for the late dude. That’d scare the shit out of me and it’d guarantee I’d never be late getting you anything again in the future.

    • Mike Gold says:

      As a card-carrying editor (is THIS your card?), I reserve the right to be real late getting back to you!

    I can imagine the artist face as he returned home and found the note on his drawing table. It evokes the same sensation I had when I watched the scene from The Godfather and the guy woke up with the horse head in his bed next to him! Great article!!

    • Mike Gold says:

      I would point out that said artist is highly talented and a great guy with a first-rate sense of humor.

      I’d work with him again in a heartbeat… but only if his payment is net-30.

    Wow! This sounds exciting! Anybody i know involved? Wow!

    BTW — Mike once called me about a late assignment and told me I had passed the deadline and was heading for the funeral line.

    • Mike Gold says:

      Brother John, I think you know EVERYBODY involved. And we’re ALL keeping it a secret from you! Now go help Mary feed the chickens.

    True-but if you think it’s going to happen this time call me. I know people. Bloods, Crips, and other colorful sorts who dislike injustice in the world.

    “Marc Alan Fishman likes this.” “Marc Alan Fishman has killed a sacrificial goat.” “Marc Alan Fishman has given the goat to that top chef chic who cooks goat at her restaurant.”

    Tease, tease and more tease. Who do you think you are, MOTU? Oh right, you only took up one column to do it. Never mind.

    • Michael Davis says:

      YOU? Miss a deadline? You? Denys Cowan? Nooooooooooooo!

    • Mike Gold says:

      Hey, Denys! Remember when I had DC print up special “Cowan Boards” at repro size to help you make deadlines? You did damn fine work at that size… Which puts you in the same category as Jack Cole!

      • denys cowan says:

        cowan boards!
        i’m not sure about the quality of the work i did back then
        but the crazy thing is that now

        Jack Cole was a comic book genius..
