Comic Book Babylon gathers icons like HARLAN ELLISON, ALAN MOORE, FRANK MILLER, JOE KUBERT, GENE COLAN and NEAL ADAMS into a conversation where anything goes.

Among the stories you'll hear directly from comics� greatest creators is how & why X-Men co-creator Dave Cockrum, after years of suffering and being unable to get work, became the first Marvel artist to receive a monetary settlement and lifetime royalties for his creations.

Author and comics historian Clifford Meth delivers a startling look at the REAL villains and heroes of comics. This fascinating book collects Clifford Meth's comics columns and essays--some too outrageous to publish in their day--and adds never-before-revealed material. Everything is brought to life with sensational illustrations by Neal Adams' apprentice, the celebrated and beloved Marvel/DC artist MICHAEL NETZER.
