Happy birthday to Fabulous Flo!
 
Florence "Flo" Steinberg is an American publisher of one of the first independent comic books, the underground/alternative comics hybrid Big Apple Comix, in 1975. Additionally, as the secretary for Marvel Comics editor Stan Lee and the fledgling company's receptionist and fan liaison during the 1960s Silver Age of Comic Books, she was a key participant of and witness to Marvel's expansion from a two-person staff to a pop culture conglomerate.

As of 2007, Steinberg, who has appeared in fictionalized form in Marvel Comics, speaks at comic book conventions and has been the subject of a magazine profile.

In the career-girl fashion of that era, Steinberg spent some months job-hunting through employment agencies. "After a couple of interviews, I was sent to this publishing company called Magazine Management. There I met a fellow by the name of Stan Lee, who was looking for what they called then a 'gal Friday.'"

Marvel's only staffers at that time were Lee and Steinberg herself, with the rest of the work handled freelance. She recalled that the "first real Bullpen" — the roomful of artists at drawing boards making corrections, preparing art for printing, and, as envisioned later within Marvel's letter pages and "Bullpen Bulletins", a mythologized clubhouse in which the likes of Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck and others would be found kibitzing — was created when Marvel moved downtown a few buildings from 655 Madison Avenue to 635 Madison Avenue.

Great video! I'll have to get that book.
Danse Macabre is another great nonfiction book by Stephen King. Check it out when you have a free minute!

The future of superheroes... SACRED WEAPON
It's the story of young heroes and heroines carrying on the family tradition of public service during times of crisis. Can Jack Wright defend the common man while he's called to duty by a dubious administration? Will he accept a deadly mission in this global "Holy War" as their SACRED WEAPON?!

So I went to Baltimore Comic Con this weekend and, yeah, there were tons of comics there but more than ever before I was struck by the willingness of creators and publishers to openly discuss the "D" word.

Story
Tagline
Creator of Lives, Destroyer of Worlds
Introduction
You probably don't know me yet.

My name is Gil and I'm working on self publishing my independent comic (working title - The Cheese That Binds). 

It's the twisted tale of a former child star whose embittered mother sold him to the gods of television. There are numerous sub-plots involving furries and agents and other demonic entities. 

Or maybe it's about the toenail fairy battling the evil ghost of Ronald Reagan. It's a work in progress.

Please keep your hands and arms inside the profile until the internet comes to a complete stop.

I write things on this page. You may not like some of those things; I'm good with that. 

Please, before you send me a snarky comment or pissy email, READ what I wrote. I have no problem defending my opinions, but I won't defend what you THINK I wrote.

Thanks for visiting.
