But a lot of it was just learning Paris and going to museums a lot. I really focused on that. I joined the Army Reserves because my number had come up and they wanted to draft me.

The alternative was that we could either join the National Guard or the Reserve voluntarily, and have six months of active duty and six years of inactive duty. It meant you went to training either every week or every weekend, and spent two weeks every summer training. It was a lot easier than two full years. At Fort Dix I just sat around, drew, and did what people did in the army: I wrote press releases for local papers. All I did was rewrite press releases: I was living with my parents and driving into the city every morning.

In those days you could drive into the city, park on 60th Street and Madison Avenue, and leave the car all day. Then I went to Associated American Artists and put together their catalog. It was a gallery on 57th Street which specialized in prints, and so my expertise came to the fore. Then I got a job at the Abelard-Schuman publishing company. And then I was offered a job at Columbia University Press as the assistant advertising manager, which I took because it paid more and was more interesting than Abelard-Schuman.

So I did a lot of direct mail print advertising for the Press for more than a year. My ex-wife was working for Commentary magazine and then got a job at American Heritage. And then I decided that I wanted to be a cartoonist; I wanted to be an artist. I did a lot of printing down there. And then I would draw cartoons and start to make the rounds. After trying in a very desultory way for a long time, submitting and then not submitting for a while, The New Yorker finally took a cartoon in You also returned to Pratt for an MFA, right?

I got an MFA in art education, although I did a lot of work in printmaking, drawing, and painting. I took a few courses with Dore Ashton and got really friendly with her, so I would say she was my closest mentor. I got friendly with the painter Robert Richenburg, who taught me interesting things. And I learned a lot about drawing from Mercedes Matter. After I graduated, I immediately got a job at Brown. I felt that at least I had something under me and could do anything creatively without having to scrabble around.

It would have been the same problem as working full time for the Columbia Press. I left it with great trepidation and sadness. I mean, you can teach the nuts and bolts of it, sure. And you can teach setting up a situation and telling a story that way. They all have a little something to them, like a sense of displaced anger or schadenfreude. I sort of know how things work, and I can see how to make an idea better.

But if that idea really comes from some magical, wonderfully unexpected place, how do you explain that? My ex-wife moved to New York and the kids went down with her. I was living in Providence and was commuting back and forth to see them, sometimes twice a week, from Providence, along with teaching and trying to be a cartoonist. The agent Ted Reilly took me on, and he was getting me all kinds of illustration work, mainly advertising and other commercial stuff. At that time, The New Yorker was buying a lot. I was selling forty or fifty drawings a year.

I found that I was giving the teaching short shrift, and something had to give. I was killing myself with all this commuting, and I had no place in New York. So I said OK, this is nuts. If anything, my work life got more intense, so I was stressed out a lot again. I bought this place in , partially because some good friends whose kids were the same age as my kids had a place nearby. I bought it almost on a whim, because I just wanted a house. It seemed nice, and the village was quite appealing and, at that time, there was no construction around it. It was like an English or French village.

It was very insular and isolated. Oh, I think I'll always feel like an outsider. We backed into it. There is, but less and less so as more and more people like me move into Vermont. But this is the real Vermont. The Vermont profonde , as the French would say. I noticed Floyd's General Store, which has popped up in many of your cartoons, right down the road. Every morning his cronies all show up and sit around that stove and bloviate. Al Floyd, fire chief at Randolph Center.

So I get to know these guys, get in their brains, and kind of get to like them. Or not, as the case may be. He wasn't so much a personal mentor as a model of how to work. His literary and visual meldings are an extraordinary achievement, a feat of artistry. He was unusual, unique, and a genius. And he was nice to me. Just kind of friendly. He invited me to his studio a couple of times just to schmooze.

He was open and encouraging. You have a very interesting notion of America. The problem with the country is there are no girls. The rural woman tends to be not terribly attractive, charming, worldly, or anything. Of course there are some, but look around. There are these large, overweight, helmet-haired creatures who do everything they can to make themselves unattractive.

It's still difficult to conceive that Steinberg was doing "high" art in the cartooning format. Well, therein is the problem to kind of mull over: How is this different, in a structural way, than [Paolo] Veronese unfolding a narrative in a single-panel format? You can tell a Veronese because of the brushwork, line work, and structuring of the pallete. It's the same thing with an Arno. So where is the value system of high and low? There are little nuances, things in the background that kind of relate to, or illuminate, the actual action I want to focus on.

It adds to it. I think of the panel like a theater director, or a playwright, would, because I'm unfolding a drama.

List of sports films

I cast these people to be who I want them to be, and then I have a costumer come in [laughs] and a scenic designer and a lighting director and I put it all together. I want the action, the emotion of the moment, to be profound, clear, and also funny. So how do you do all that? A lot of them start out with outlines.

The rough drawings are very quick and fresh, and I try to keep the dynamic part of it going. Lee [Lorenz] has this incredibly vivid, lively style, and I want to keep that in my own work, as well. Robert Blechman is another one who only uses two or three lines, all very spare, and each one considered as carefully as one would consider a major military move. According to a mutual friend, he looked at one of my drawings once, and kind of shuddered, and said, "All those lines.

Part of it is almost a fear of commitment, in a way. Oh, and when I have people around they'll be someone like myself sitting around in the back, just observing — like Hitchcock put himself in his films. An animal is very much a surrogate. I was thinking about this today, actually. But somehow they can have the same emotions people who are about to start a race have, or the same expressions and intensity. I enjoy drawing humans as well. In a way, it just comes down to intuition. Because I have tried them back and forth sometimes, just to see if it works.

I just got an OK for one that uses birds. It has to do with political correctness and all this turmoil about where our food comes from. It makes perfect sense with birds. Well, first I go to a fire [laughs] and then I look at email. But usually I just go into the studio in the morning, futz and putter around, and get up to speed.

Doing a few laps around the studio: Sometimes it requires just sitting there, and then it happens. And sometimes one sits there for hours and nothing happens, no good ideas. And sometimes one thing leads to another through a process of association and free association and mental disassociation.

What did Arno say to a woman? They come from the long hard hours sitting and working. I tend to edit myself more, than I did. So I end up refining it to maybe five or six roughs. Maybe seven, but not much more than that. Then I sit back and wait to see what happens to them. Have a nice trip! Needless to say, the Jay Disbrow comic most pertinent to this column is 's The Flames of Gyro , a historic work not for its content but due to its positioning: Disbrow too was marginal. As with not a few artists, his career had been wiped out by the adoption of the Comics Code late in ; in fact, save for a small handful of romance stories with the Farrell Comic Group and an obscure two-color religious magazine in '57 Zondervan Publishing's The Centurion of Ancient Rome , he had not published any sequential art since.

However, as he told Zone, "[w]hen Gary Groth And because Joe is all about cramming all kinds of incongruous things into tiny spaces, he's also hidden a short piece about the Walking Dead video game somewhere in there Orthofer reviews Osamu Tezuka's Ayako. Kochalka "Craft is the Enemy" debate. If there are any other classic letters-column debates or interviews from the Comics Journal past you'd like to see again, please let us know.

Sifting through more than three decades' worth of argument means we're bound to miss out on some of the good stuff. What you see above is the last comic book work of Disbrow's in print: Ellingston was a newspaper editor, with no other comic book credits of which I'm aware, and the whole project seems in retrospect to function as an opportunity for comics-interested parties of little practical experience to ride alongside veterans of various stripe. The story sees alien clinicians kidnapping adult Earthlings at the behest of their parents and performing very late-term abortions.

It is not the most intellectually vice-tight contribution to that enduring American debate, but "blob[s] of protoplasm" nonetheless keenly figure into this closing act, wherein Disbrow, 64, still shows some faculty with the grotesque. He said, 'This is the stuff that's selling and this is what we have to produce.

Once in a while I was able to get one in. Truth be told, The Flames of Gyro is not all that well-regarded a comic, to the extent that it is even remembered. Following Raymondesque space hero Valgar Gunnar as he casts the tzatziki of justice onto the pork strips of tyranny, Gyro constitutes an extremely old-fashioned, text-heavy homage to classic adventure strips, lacking in both the comparatively lively qualities of contemporaneous genre fare like Sabre -- not exactly an underwritten piece itself -- and the masterful craft of the great strip artists.

Disbrow's art, in contrast -- prone to a certain stiffness in even the best of circumstances -- quite resembles the output of a man who'd long ago turned to technical illustration, and it's little surprise the work lingers consciously today primarily as a nugget of trivia.

And yet, this was the dream. Both that of Fantagraphics -- which aspired to raise comics away from the low boundaries of "the stuff that's selling" and up toward the realm of art, which, as a necessary first step, demands at least the potential for the artist's disregard of populist salesmanship -- and the infant Direct Market of comic book retailers, which sought to bypass the vagaries of the newsstand distribution model and offer focused reading experiences for connoisseurs in addition to a reliable stream of superhero product. In those days, I'm told you really could walk into a comic book store and expect to find everything that was available.

Jay Disbrow always wanted to draw science-fiction comics, and suddenly - he could. Suddenly, he could write a page biographical profile of Jerry Iger, in whose shop he'd cut his teeth in the early '50s, and Blackthorne Publishing would release it in as The Iger Comics Kingdom. He is dapper as fuck, and an excellent cosplay opportunity.

Moreover, there's this sinister edge to him that suggests somebody scooped up the luckless protagonist of "Ultimate Destiny" and poured him into a most hi-tech of utilitarian molds.
