All three are great and all are the handiwork of one Jim Starlin, a writer and artist who's career goes back 30 plus years and is still going strong. Jim's been called the guy who put the space in space opera and with good reason—he does it and does it very well, thank you (see: Rann-Thanagar Holy War from DC)!
Starlin came into popularity back in the '70s while drawing Captain Marvel for Marvel Comics. He ended up writing the book as well, including Mar-vel's eventual death in 1982. Also to his credit, he redefined a rather vague Lee/Kirby charcater named Warlock (formally "Him"), created Vanth Dreadstar and the Metamorphosis Odyssey for Epic and explained to the world how the hell Nick Fury stays so young looking after all these years!
If you go to Jim's Wikipedia page , it also mentions things like Batman A Death in the Family which featured the demise of the second Robin, Death of the New Gods, all the Infinity books and tons more.
Dwight and I have always loved his work and consider Starlin to be one of the preeminent writer/artists of his generation. During the '80s, he and guys like Howard Chaykin, Mike Grell and Matt Wagner rocked at both disciplines and it made for some fun and smart comics.
In our conversation, we get into as many nooks and crannies as time will allow. We cover how he keeps things fresh after all these years, his work on Warlock and the creation of Thanos, his opinions on comics as an industry and a medium, and some funny stories about Dreadstar and Shang-Chi.
**For this episode, we played a snippet of Steve Miller's The Joker because Jim too speaks of the "Pompatus of love!"
