    Hollywood views all other media as their farm teams. When a product gets enough sales, or even just buzz, it’s uplifted into the city in the sky known as Film. And we’re supposed to doff our caps and thank them for giving us a look.

    Mike Gold was the editor, Mike Grell was the writer, and I penciled and colored the book. We jokingly called the project, the Mike book.

    In 1970, Fairport Convention released an album called “Full House”,. with a cover that caricatured the band members as Tarot cards – two Kings and three Knights.

    It wasn’t till some years later that i realised – Fairport at that time (always important to specify exactly WHEN you’re talking about because the lineup shifts all the time) consisted of two guitar players (Simon Nicol and Richard Thompson) and three guys named Dave (Pegg, Mattacks and Swarbrick).

    George can come to my party. In my room.

    Back in the day, I was dating science fiction writer Norman Spinrad, and he took me to a chi-chi party in Malibu. I was feeling INCREDIBLY out of my depths–yes, people, it does happen–so I put on my sunglasses and sat on lounge chair on the “lanai”–the party was too chi-chi to call it a “deck” and just occupied myself with looking out at the Pacific and marveling at the sun going down into the ocean instead of coming up out of the ocean as it does on the East Coast.

    Anyway, Norman came over and told me I was the “hit of the party.”

    I was, like, are you kidding me? I haven’t said a word to ANYONE.

    He said, “Sweetheart, this is Hollywood. Sitting on a lounge chair and wearing sunglasses, not talking to anyone, pulling the Greta Garbo act (I vant to be alone) is enough here to get EVERYONE talking about you.”

    My dear dear Mike aka “MOTU PRIME”, its been awhile since Ive had the chance to post to your stories, my friend. Working in the Government and at a game and comic store takes a lot of my time BUT I will find time to read over your musings and I just happened to find this to be one of your ELITE articles.
    I agree with you whole heartedly and completely. I find myself defending my beloved comic industry from bozos who make the exclamation that Comic Con has become “hollywooded” and I say the same thing: Comic Con was Comic Con before Hollywood entered this geek orgy. They need us, not the other way around…Take away the TV shows and movies, I’d still attend and perhaps the smell of roast beef and ham (with no deli in the SDCC) will be more wider spread…Thank you my friend and I countdown the months until “The Black Panel”..

    P.S. I still remember meeting Dwayne in 2011 and Hollywood didnt give that timeless moment to me…Thank you my friend
