Gardner Fox and Steranko were honoured at the Awards Luncheon. In his speech Steranko said: "...things like typography, design, photography gimmicks, op art and pop art in my comics, which came from films, from radio, from the pulps, from the ad agency, from business, from everything that I could possibly apply from my entire background, including the magic I have done and the gigs I have played...go into every comic book story. Nick Fury became Steranko."
At an impromptu Q and A session, Steranko was asked about working in the future for Marvel or DC. Steranko's response: "I don't work on comic deadlines again, ever."
And finally...Cosplay 1971 style. Is it just my imagination, or were cosplayers slimmer back then?
Note artist Mike Zeck as Black Bolt, and Kirk (Superman) Alyn judging.
