THE CONVERSATION CONTUNIES WITH ARTIST WRITER CHUCK AUSTEN IN PART 2, WE COVER CHUCK'S WORK AT MARVEL AND DC ON BOOKS LIKE THE X-MEN, "US WAR MACHINE", "SUPERMAN METROPOLIS", AND ACTION COMICS, PLUS WE GET A PREVIEW OF CHUCK'S SCI-FI PROJECT FROM HUMANOIDS, CALLED "FLYWIRES"
I RARELY EDITORIALIZE, BUT I ALWAYS FELT THAT WHILE X-FANS HAD EVERY RIGHT TO DISLIKE THE STYLE OF A GIVEN ARTIST OR WRITER, THE AMOUNT OF UGLY VENOM SPEWED AT CHUCK AUSTEN DEFINES THE NERDY STIGMA COMIC FANS MUST ENDURE BY NON-READERS. IT WAS IMMATURE SHRILL NONSENSE . PERSONALLY, I'M A BIG FAN OF CHUCK'S WORK ON WAR MACHINE, THE ETERNAL, HIS X-RATED COMICS, AND MOST OF HIS DC BOOKS. IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE SPENDING TIME WITH CHUCK ON THIS EPISODE. IN PART 1, CHUCK TALKS ABOUT THE NEW BOOK FROM TOKYO POP "THE BOYS OF SUMMER" , HIS EARLY COMIC DAYS AT ECLIPSE, DRAWING MIRACLEMAN, THE CONTROVERSIAL ALAN MOORE EPIC, AND HE DESCRIBES THE CRAZY SCENE AT THE INFAMOUS 1986 SAN DIEGO CONVENTION, WHICH BECAME MOORE'S FRST, AND LAST US CON APPEARENCE.
