Doing this podcast is one of the few times in my life these days where I'm the "kid".

Going to switch things up, though, and have on some real kids soon.

No salt, just taking the pizz (and succeeding at it, I see!) lol :baiting: 

I don't even know if the Hulk #181 has sold or not, let alone at what price. (shrug)

I know you well enough to know you're little annoyed about it ;) 

I was wondering about the price/ whether sold.   You made it sound like it was a done deal, but I guess not!

I'm so happy it's two other people instead of me and somebody. Thrilled to watch from the sidelines, even though it's already over :(

Looking forward to this. Like yourself, I know exactly what my demographic values (and overvalues), but the youngsters ??? , well Rob Liefeld aside ;)

I have a feeling it’s even younger than the Liefeld demographic :popcorn:

Great!  I had to set aside some time and put  this on my list.  I'm glad I did.

Nice podcast!  David

For those asking about the "Frazetta Erotic Images" (as DocDave describes them) referenced on the podcast, here's a piece written by former podcast guest, Suat Tong Ng:

https://www.hoodedutilitarian.com/2015/11/dont-hide-your-candle-under-a-bushel-mr-frazetta-nsfw/

As always, unmistakably and singularly a Suat essay. The comment thread is worth a read, as well.

Questions for me from the beginning: Should these have been made public and sold? Can that be considered a betrayal? Does the existence of these drawings affect Frazetta's legacy? Everyone can decide for themselves.

Additional question: "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

Meaning...the material was created by Frazetta, whatever your opinion on that fact, would anything be different if you never knew about it? Would you prefer to have never known? Is ignorance bliss?

Unpublished art not meant for public consumption.   Don’t care.  Slippery slope when we start judging people on what they do privately.

Thank you to Vodou and for Nexus for the additional information.  It was important for me to see what was being covered so I could make my own opinion.  The vague descriptions of it actually suggest something far worse in my mind than the actual images.  So it was better to see what was being discussed than hearing the vague "Frazetta Erotic Images that are also racist."

I'm not downplaying or dismissing the problematic issues with it.  I have a lot of opinions on it but nothing to add to the conversation.

"There is nothing subtle about the content here which makes its wide acceptance altogether more distasteful."

Ummm...what exactly is allegedly going on here?  I mean, sure, I can make up a salacious narrative, but, I have no idea what's actually in the book, and have no way to place the context of this image otherwise.

One of the artists I rep, Daniel Warren Johnson, has been producing his own fan mini-comics over the last several years. Just for fun. The latest, OLD MAN SKYWALKER, has gotten a lot of attention on social media. Here are the original art scans...enjoy!

Have you tweeted any of those images to Mark Hammill? I suspect he’d enjoy them.
