Video of "The Martin Goodman Exhibit"

Thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday to the book's release event in New York City at the Society of Illustrators. It was great to see industry stalwarts like as Paul Levitz (going strong after transitioning from D.C. Comics head honcho), Jon B. Cooke (editor of Comic Book Creator), and Cory Sedlmeier (thrilled by the news of his involvement in Marvel's Miracleman reprints and new material by Neil Gaiman).

We were also blessed to have Nancy Shores Karlebach with us. Her father is the late Syd Shores, featured so prominently in the book. He was the Captain America artist during WWII, and ran the last, true Marvel Bullpen in the late 1940s.

We'll talk more tomorrow about our other featured guests (Mr. Al Jaffee and Stan Goldberg) but, for now, we want to share with you one of the unique aspects of the event that we're sorry you missed. It's "The Martin Goodman Exhibit" and features many of the publications in the book. Michael narrates in the video through the 1930s to the 1950s, showing off various pulps, magazines, bed sheets, digests and so many more formats, all from his collection. Covers feature such prominent pop culture figures such as Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Gleason and, of course, Stan Lee, but see for yourself...
