Walkin' with Al Jaffee in NYC

We were be joined by famed artists Al Jaffee and Stan Goldberg at our New York City event last Saturday. Both Jaffee and Goldberg worked in Marvel Comics owner Martin Goodman's other publications. They joined us on stage to discuss their memories of working for Goodman during the halcyon days of Marvel Comics in the 1940s and 50s.

Jaffee started with Marvel on strips like "Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal" (click on the image to your left) - indeed, quite a few funny animal books - in the 1940s. He finished his time there in the 1950s on humor and teen books, like Patsy Walker, before becoming a staple at Mad Magazine.

We were very blessed to have both gentlemen with us. The whole day was a blast, just walkin' the streets of New York City with Al Jaffee...
