After sharing my favorite Superman stories last episode, this time I want to talk about my favorite comic book artist, Curt Swan. Starting with a brief biography, I then highlight key issues from Curt Swan's career, and why I enjoy his art style so much. At the end of the podcast I share some of the earliest Curt Swan stories I remember reading as a young boy, that I have been able to find copies of again and add to my comic book collection:
SUPERMAN #181, Nov. 1965, THE SUPER SCOOP OF MONA VINE and THE SUPERMAN OF 2965.
WORLD'S FINEST #155, Feb. 1966, THE 1,000TH EXPLOIT OF SUPERMAN AND BATMAN. This was the first comic book I remember my Dad buying me as a small boy. WORLD'S FINEST #159, Aug. 1966, THE CAPE AND COWL CROOKS.
To read more about Curt Swan's life and career read CURT SWAN: A LIFE IN COMICS, by Eddy Zeno, published by Vanguard Productions in 2002.
