Throwback Thursday: MassArt Halloween Party 1984
This is me as “Doctor 13” for the 1984 Mass Art Halloween party. Looking at it now, I’d like to retitle it “What Was I Thinkiing?” or “Hello ‘Frisco”. I agree with fellow MassArt student Christine Lloyd who called this “disgusting”. I decided to go at the last minute, and quickly threw together from whatever I could find at Store 24. That hair color turned out not to be as “washable” as advertised. Ended up cutting my hair just to get rid of it.
Many of these rates (before taxes, might I add) haven’t changed in 20 years. $100-$250 in 1994 aint the same as in 2014. This is why Comic Book Conventions for many comic illustrators, in many cases, are the lifeblood of their comic making (commissions, direct fan interaction books sales).

Casual brilliance from Jack Kirby: Storytelling. Johnny looks knocked out, he and Hulk’s angle carry momentum without speed lines. We don’t need to see Hulk’s reaction, allowing Stan to put his speech balloon on the left — freeing up with layout. Ben leaning at an opposite angle adds to the tension.
